A top VMRO-DPMNE delegation met with EU enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn in Brussels, to raise concerns about the abuse of the institutions in Macedonia by the Zaev regime. The delegation, including Aleksandar Nikoloski, Vladimir Gjorcev and Timco Mucunski, also called on the European Union to open accession talks with Macedonia, despite all the flaws of the current Government.
VMRO-DPMNE representatives pointed out that the Government doesn’t have the capacity necessary to deliver results. It is especially failing in the fight against corruption, judicial reforms and the economy, the opposition party said in its press release.
According to Nikoloski, these three points are keeping Macedonia away from the approval of a date to open EU accession talks.
Still, VMRO-DPMNE hopes that Macedonia will be given a date to open the accession talks, as this would be beneficial for all citizens. After the regime change, which is coming shortly, a VMRO-DPMNE led Government will focus strongly on the European agenda to make up for the time lost in these past years under the Zaev Government, Nikoloski said.
The delegation is in Brussels for the post-election meeting of the European People’s Party. In meetings with EPP leader Joseph Daul and Secretary General Antonio Lopez Isturiz, the VMRO delegation discussed joint work on the pre-election program for the Macedonian citizens.
