The government steals electricity and makes millions, and the people pay millions so that the government has something to steal, stressed VMRO-DPMNE in a press release on Saturday.

After several purchases of expensive electricity, a new contract was signed for the supply of electricity for 10 days worth over 12 million euros. If this sum is added to the previous 11 million euros spent on electricity, and the 15 million we paid to the European energy network, we come to a sum of over 38 million euros, money that the state spent on buying expensive electricity, and winter has not even started. Electricity is bought because there is no domestic production, and there is not because there is no coal in REK, nor water in the hydro-accumulations. The incapacity and poor management of energy companies is paid for by the citizens from whose pockets these millions are taken to buy electricity, and later that expensive electricity is stolen by someone in power for bitcoin mining, said the party.

The party added that with this government the system does not work. An energy crisis of unprecedented proportions awaits us and this government does not know how to deal with it. That is why changes are needed, quick elections, and then a new government led by VMRO-DPMNE.
