SDSM leader Zoran Zaev’s latest campaign gaffe involved a frequent target of his – legendary VMRO leader Goce Delcev. Zaev is involved in protracted negotiations with Bulgaria, and is moving toward agreeing with the Bulgarian position that Goce Delcev was in fact a Bulgarian hero.

Yesterday in Kumanovo, Zaev was in a different, patriotic mood, aware that giving away Goce Delcev is electoral poison, but he managed to fumble his comments. “Goce Delcev is our history, the greatest hero of our fight AGAINST freedom, for social justice”, Zaev said.
