TV21 is reporting a growing confrontation between the SDSM and DUI parties over who gets to contrl the Blace border crossing with Kosovo.

The television reports that rival Interior Ministry officials from the two coalition partners were assigning and re-assigning employees at the border crossing based on their party allegiance. TV21 said it received complaints from border guards there after one ethnic Albanian officer who was the head of a shift was replaced with an SDSM affiliated officer, and pressed the DUI appointed Deputy Interior Minister Agim Nuhiu on the issue. Nuhiu denied that there are troubles between the two main coalition parties and said that the appointments are now decided based on party affiliation.
