Significant police forces are deployed around the Tetovo village of Mala Recica, where the DUI party has its main office, as protesters are descending to request its removal from the Government.

The protests are a culmination of the weeks of revelations of corruption allegations against DUI, shared by Sekerim Ahmeti, an activist who lives in Chicago, and who apparently has access to a cache of wiretaps similar or the same as the one used by the SDSM party to spark the 2015 political crisis.
