Macedonia is ranked on the 107th position in the Index for the perception of corruption in 2017 by Transparency International (IT) which sees the country’s position to have fallen for 17 slots compared to the previous year and is the worst result for the country since the index’s existence, stressed Transparency International- Macedonia.

There was a reaction by VMRO-DPMNE about Macedonia’s ranking and it stated that SDSM’s governance is marked by many cases of corruption and criminal and that these cases including the nepotism contribute to this fall in the previous year, especially when there is no one to bear any responsibility.

SDSM responded that the ranking on the Corruption Perception Index is a “result of the 10-year criminal governance by VMRO-DPMNE and that the citizens have a clear understanding of who worked criminally corrupted.The ruling party said that the things are changing “and the results will evidently reflect the situation in 2018.”
