DUI’s spokesperson, Bujar Osmani, in an interview given for the Voice of America in Albanian language said that in Macedonia there is a pressure for disrespecting the principle according to which “the winner of the Albanian community chooses the partner-winner at the Macedonian community.”

In the interview, Osmani accused the media that they are exerting pressure this principle to be abandoned.

“I think what dominates the scene is respecting signed agreements. In the past, Macedonia had managed to exist as such only because it respected international agreements. One of them is the May agreement dated from 2008, where it said that the winner of the Albanian community chooses the partner-winner from the Macedonian community. Respecting this principle is very important in order to retain the importance the Albanian community has and to preserve the logics that the elections have at the Albanians themselves,” said Osmani
