VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski said that the least Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski could do after a series of failures, is to resign. The latest blow for Spasovski came after the revelation that the Public Prosecutors Office was being systematically wiretapped.

– This is scandalous behavior on the part of the Interior Ministry, beginning in September 2016. Spasovski was technical Interior Minister and now he is Interior Minister. I saw that ridiculous statement from the Government spokesman who tries to find the blame elsewhere, instead of looking inside their own ranks. The least Spasovski can do after the disastrous mistakes of this year and half is to resign immediately, Mickoski said.

Spasovski was already under pressure after former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski was able to leave the country and received political asylum in Hungary, raising questions whether the Interior Ministry was incompetent, or was collluding in this case.
