VMRO-DPMNE is said to have had a EUREKA moment at their HQ earlier today.
According to daily Republika, the VMRO-DPMNE will not take part at tomorrow’s Parliament meeting where Xhaferi, the illegally appointed speaker has called for a meeting to discuss the mandate for local mayors.
VMRO-DPMNE has rightfully stated they don’t recognize Xhaferi as Parliament speaker, yet Saturday afternoon ended up sending Nikola Todorov for discussions with SDS’ Oliver Spasovski who jointly met with Xhaferi.
Apparently, someone within the party realized by sending MPs to meetings with Xhaferi, they are essentially recognizing him as the speaker.
Tomorrow’s coordination was called in by Xhaferi to discuss what needs to be done as now all cities will be left mayorless, payments to city workers would stop which means municipalities would start to pile up with garbage as no one would move it – similarly to what happened in Paris when their city workers went on strike.
The Constitutional Court ended the mayors’ mandates on May 15th, which means local elections must be scheduled, something the SDS is not very keen on as their ratings have plummeted after the Tirana platform was introduced.
With VMRO-DPMNE not attending, the future of the meeting is now up in the air.
