Dear friends, we must be aware of the reality and the problems that eat away our society. Turning a blind eye to injustice and lawlessness will neither help nor delay the arrival of solutions. Silence will bring even greater injustice and lawlessness. Macedonia suffers from a criminal and corruptive cancer, which is spread to the tiniest pores. And that’s not the only problem. The government has long lost the criteria for the normal and now we are in a state of continuous attacks on decadence and abuses, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristiјan Mickoski said at Sunday’s 18th conference of the Union of Women.

He also spoke about “the zaevism” as well as the numerous negative phenomena that appear every day in society.

This metastasis of the new difficult social reality is called Zaevism, which grows into a diagnosis of the painful and difficult time for the Macedonian citizens, whose characteristic is the constant loss, be it freedom, identity or name. It’s about respect, dignity, security, work, our loved ones who wish to go outside the state as soon as possible. Such zaevism grows into a single-minded mental matrix of people in power, who produce fear, everyday lies.

As the president of VMRO-DPMNE added, the country’s laws do not apply, and in Macedonia there is no more rule of law.

The judiciary and the prosecution have long been no mechanisms to protect justice. The cases of the attacks on Mile and Spiro in the prison are not just data that proves that the procedures and rules in the prison have been violated, but above all, it is the consequence of the ruined system, immorality and evidence of unprecedented organized persecution that continues ahead of the presidential elections.

Mickoski added that the Zaevism must be defeated, and the coming elections will be a referendum of the people.

I stand before you and I say to you, clear and loud enough, the fight against the Zaevism is a battle for Macedonia and our generation. The Zaevism must be defeated, and the coming elections will be a referendum of the people. Now is the time to make your voice heard in politics and the moment when each of you must decide. And it’s really not enough to just stand in front of the tv and be just bitter about the bad reality. You must choose a side and get out and vote, he said.
