Zoran Zaev and Ali Ahmeti met in the Government today to discuss ways in which they can fulfill Zaev’s promise to purge the most corrupt officials from their Government in early June. It was agreed that the two will meet with their party officials and then meet again to plan the reconstruction of their Government.

The goal of these meetings is to secure the personnel choices which will improve the capacity of the institutions and will implement better economic results and meet citizen expectations, the Government said in a press release.

Their coalition lost 2/5 of the votes in a year and half, between the 2017 municipal elections and the first round of the 2019 presidential elections, which raised alarm and prompted Zaev to make his promise to purge the corrupt and incompetents from his Government.
