VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Miskoski said in an interview with Nezavisen that he is convinced that the threshold will be reached in the second round of presidential elections and that Professor Gordana Siljanovska Davkova will be the next president of the country.

I personally cannot trust Zoran Zaev, because he has gambled with the truth so far, and I can say that he rarely speaks it. I could not rely on what he says. But if you now assume a scenario, that if the turnout is low, we will have to sit down and figure next steps. I am convinced that there will be enough voters, that the threshold will be reached and that professor Siljanovska-Davkova is the future president, says the leader of VMRO-DPMNE and added:

I will give you a piece of advice – this type of politicians, who often know how to gamble with the truth and often do not speak it, do not support you in building views and in the perception of reality. The prime minister had to listen to us and call early elections. You recall his theatrical statement that he would crush us in elections, now we see that someone else has been crashed in these elections. And that is the truth because he did not call parliamentary elections along with the presidential, as was the case in 2009 with the local elections and in 2014 with the parliamentary. Then, I suppose, we would not be talking about this today.
