Signals for early general elections in FYROM

Signals for early general elections in FYROM
After the holding of local government elections in FYROM, the country’s opposition has requested the holding of early parliamentary elections. The leader of VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski has declared that the new government led by Zoran Zaev doesn’t have the necessary capacities to govern the country and that this was seen during the holding of local government elections.

“Zaev must immediately announce the holding of early parliamentary elections. The elections should be held based on the Przino accord, through a technocrat government. The same method was also followed during the elections held in December 2016”, Gruevski said.

Meanwhile, Albanian opposition party, BESA Movement and Alliance for Albanians, which is part of the government, have also asked for early elections. These two parties forged a coalition during the local government elections, in order to race against the other Albanian party, BDI.

“As a coalition, we have won everywhere and we have the majority of votes within the Albanian electorate. BDI has lost and the communes that it won, were thanks to SDSM’s support. To measure our strength and to show that we represent the will of the majority of Albanians, we want early elections”, the chairman of BESA Movement, Billall Kasami said.

Meanwhile, SDSM has said that it is ready to head to elections.

“SDSM is ready to head to elections, but are these elections really necessary or should we use this period to do something for the country”, said the vice chairman of SDSM and minister of Interior, Oliver Spasovski. /balkaneu.com/
