No matter what the outcome of the election analysis will be, I will resign to the organs of the party, stated the leader of the opposition VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski, in an interview with “Kurir”.
“The evening after the first round of elections, I clearly stated that the party leader carries the greatest responsibility. Then in a television interview, I explained that in a team which competes, whether its politics, sports, business or in any field, the biggest responsibility by definition is carried by the first person. Those who know me well and those who understand political messages well understand me. Regardless of the outcome of the election analysis, even if objectively, my guilt is small or the least, or even the smallest, however, if it is determined that I have no objective guilt over defeat, I will resign to the organs of the party”, said Gruevski.
He says this step is part of his basic principles and values. According to him, VMRO-DPMNE will organize an urgent congress, where, in addition to the adoption of the report on the election analysis, members will be elect a new president of VMRO-DPMNE.
“I thought that even then, on the evening of October 15th, but because of the actual elections, I said it with political terminology, and that’s what I mean now, and since the two rounds of the elections have passed, the emotions of the campaign calmed down, I can say it in the most directly way or not”, added Gruevski, who said that the analysis of the election will take another two weeks, and that his resignation is not related to its outcome.
