Mickoski presents the arguments behind his call for the removal of minister Dimitrov and Spasovski


Removal of Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski and Foreign Affairs Minister Nikola Dimitrov is the minimum initial step which the Government must undertake, said VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski, who announced that the party will propose votes of no confidence in the two controversial officials. Spasovski is seen as the main culprit in the political abuse of the police, including the recent siege of the main VMRO-DPMNE office, while Dimitrov is the signatory of the Prespa treaty meant to rename Macedonia who disregards the outcome of the referendum and recently in a derogatory tone said that “Macedonians have issues” regarding their national history.

– This person refuses to assume responsibility for his scandalous statement which speaks volumes about his character. I believe that he should have resigned himself, without waiting for our vote of no confidence, Mickoski said about Foreign Minister Dimitrov.

Regarding Spasovski, the VMRO-DPMNE President said that “we are witnessing a number of unresolved mafia style murders in the capital Skopje, the scandal in which the prosecutors and judges were apparently wiretapped, and a total incompetence by the Interior Ministry to determine who is behind it all.

Mickoski said that there is urgent need to form a Commission led by the opposition which will determine this latest alleged wiretapping scandal, in which the Public Prosecutors Office and the Skopje Criminal Court were found to have a system put in place which can be used to record all phone conversations.

– I believe that the public has the right to know what the Government was saying to the prosecutors, how the Government communicates with the judges, and that in this way we can discover what was the secret formula in which we failed to get sentences in the Bribery and Global cases, Mickoski said, referring to the two corruption scandals involving Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. Zaev was pardoned by former President Crvenkovski in the first case and was declared not guilty in the second.
