Mickoski to Pammer: VMRO-DPMNE’s MPs will not accept constitutional changes under Bulgarian dictate

Skopje, 31 August 2023 (MIA) – The leader of VMRO-DPMNE, Hristijan Mickoski, alongside party’s Vice-President Aleksandar Nikoloski, met Thursday with the new Austrian Ambassador to North Macedonia, Martin Pammer, with whom they spoke about the current political and economic situation and the country’s Euro-integration process.

According to a VMRO-DPMNE press release, Mickoski stated that SDSM and DUI’s Government is facing new corruption scandals on a daily basis, with top government officials involved, while, they said, the living standard and the domestic budget of the citizens are dropping, “which is why snap elections are necessary.”

The constitutional amendments were also discussed at the meeting, with VMRO-DPMNE noting they will not vote for them in Parliament.

“It was noted that because SDSM and DUI’s Government does not have a 2/3 majority, it is not putting the amendments to a vote in Parliament, therefore violating legal procedures and directly violating Parliament’s Rules of Procedure. The party’s position was reaffirmed by the president [of VMRO-DPMNE], that no one from the party’s parliamentary group will accept constitutional amendments, because this isn’t Bulgaria’s last demand, and because bilateral relations must not be a part of the country’s EU accession negotiations,“ said the press release.

At the meeting, Mickoski welcomed Pammer to the country and wished him a successful term, especially underscoring the fostering of friendly relations between the two countries. Mickoski and Pammer committed themselves to further deepening of relations.
