Popovska: This is an arrogant show of power, and will lead to new destabilization

Skopje, 18 January, 2016 - 18:58 (META) 

MPs in the absence of opposition began the debate on the proposal by VMRO-DPMNE and DUI to dissolve Parliament.

Against the decision to put this item on the agenda were MP Pavle Trajanov and MP Ljiljana Popovska.

Pavle Trajanov said that the decision goes against the Constitution and that such decisions should be decided together with all political parties, especially when discussing a political agreement.

MP Liliana Popovska said she was against the dissolution of Parliament without the opposition present because, as she says “we all fought for their return to Parliament, and it is required for important decisions.”

For Popovska this is “arrogant, incorrect, unprincipled and will lead to a new destabilization of Macedonia.”

For now, a total of eight MPs are enrolled for discussion regarding this matter.

Gruevski: Apart from a cold and my sinuses, I’m very well, thank-you for asking

Skopje, 10 December, 2015 - 21:06 (META) 

The Prime Minister, in an interview with the portal “Press 24,” answered the question how the he felt personally.

“24 Press”: Prime Minister, a few months after he “bombs” the epilogue of the Przhino Agreement, general opinion is that , but first how do you feel personally?

Gruevski: You caught me unaware on this question. Hardly anyone asks me how I feel, probably people rush to announce their problems, and certainly have quite a lot, and, understandably, a few ask how I am. Therefore, you have surprised me with the question. Firstly ,I’m in great health, and apart from a cold and a sinus infections that I occasionally get, but generally, thank God, I’m fine. My family, too. And that’s the most important thing when you ask a man how he is. But when a politician has gone through a turbulent period asking this question, one can certainly follow and explain everything he felt and went through. My loved ones and I went through a serious, quite turbulent and fairly difficult period, where we were under attack, and it was a campaign designed to personally discredit me, a campaign that aimed to bring down Nikola Gruevski as Prime Minister and to destabilize state institutions, to bring unrest, strong division, hatred in society, in particular among the ethnic Macedonian. All this is a violation and in breaks over my back, but not only mine, and the backs of my associates and my family, who are subject to a disgusting campaign, but on the backs of the people in the streets, in the shops, among neighbours, relatives, friends …
