VMRO-DPMNE demands that state prosecutors began an investigation into SDSM party bosses from Prilep Mile Taleski and Transportation Minister Goran Sugareski, who were secretly recorded instructing the newly hired staff at the Prilep hospital to vote SDSM at the 2019 presidential elections.

In the recording, which VMRO-DPMNE shared with the public yesterday, Taleski reminds the employees, in the presence of the hospital manager, that they were hired through the SDSM party. He demands that all work as hard as they can to get Stevo Pendarovski elected President. Sugareski adds that all should get this message “into their heads”.

We expect that prosecutors will bring charges against Taleski and Pendarovski. We also call on the Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the two in accordance with the law preventing abuse of office with politically influenced public sector hiring, VMRO-DPMNE said in a press release.
