In front of a large number of citizens who gathered Wednesday on the square in Kavadarci for the VMRO-DPMNE rally, presidential candidate Gordana Siljanovska Davkova reminded at the beginning of her address that she was elected in a democratic way, at a convention, by voting, rather than as she emphasized, in a hotel. According to Siljanovska Davkova, this is evidence of intra-party democracy, and there is no democracy without intra-party democracy.

The race was chivalric, the delegates voted, and the fact that I was the one they elected shows that VMRO-DPMNE is moving towards real reforms, towards democratization of Macedonia, towards taking responsibility in the most difficult moments for our homeland, stressed Siljanovska Davkova.
