The European Union supports the reform efforts in the Republic of Macedonia, said European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijančič, adding that Brussels sent a clear message what they expect from Macedonia in the upcoming elections.

“We made it clear that the new Government and the opposition should leave their divisions aside and work together on the implementation of the reform priorities and the Przino Agreement to return the country to the Euro-Atlantic integration path”, said Kocijančič , responding to a journalist’s question about accusations made by the opposition that the government is preparing to commit electoral fraud through abuse of state powers and facilities.

She reiterated Brussels’s position that the only way forward for reform is through the implementation of reforms.
