DPNE’s president Hristijan Mickoski met with the President of the Association “Macedonian National Council – Makedonium” Strasho Olumchev to hear his concerns.
Olumchev had asked the DPNE president why their party is not joining in the protests in front of Parliament, and furthermore why did the opposition return to Parliament?
Miskoski told Olumchev that VMRO-DPMNE can not leave Parliament, but will not participate in parliamentary activities related to the agreement with Greece because, as he believes, it would be better for the party to stay in Parliament and to prevent Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in making harmful decisions!? So far, the DPNE has not been able to prevent Zaev in bypassing laws and the Macedonian constitution.
Olumchev said that they also discussed the referendum for which Mickoski made a statement in the media that he would go out and vote against it. Olumchev has stated that the referendum must be prevented, adding our name Macedonia was not obtained during a vote, but it was transferred to us from our grandfathers for centuries.
The president of the association Olumchev added that they will continue with everyday protests until their demands are fulfilled, including protection of the name of the Republic of Macedonia and protection of the Macedonian identity.
Mickoski has stated his party has no intention to join protesters in front of Parliament.
