13032018 4

Hristijan Mickoski is following the footsteps of Nikola Gruevski. SDSM has reacted against VMRO-DPMNE leader Mickoski’s proposal for withdrawal of the Law on languages, while guaranteeing stable parliamentary majority, noting VMRO-DPMNE works against the interest of citizens, the concept of one society for all and the European values. “Evident is the hypocrisy of VMRO-DPMNE as they had accepted the language law hoping to form a government. After they failed they are using the law today only as an alibi to block the reform process,” SDSM reacted. Previously, Mickoski said it was impossible for such a law to be adopted without considering the arguments and facts while at the same time the Constitution is being violated. He called directly on PM Zaev to withdraw the law, vouching that his party would support the reform laws. Vice PM Bujar Osmani, commenting the proposal of Mickoski, said they had announcements about blockade of reforms in the judiciary and the administration by the opposition in case the law on languages is adopted.
