In the latest report of the relevant international organization “Freedom House”, Macedonia is again regarded as a country with a hybrid rule, reacts SDSM.

In the statement of the opposition reads that the report of “Freedom House” contains unambiguous criticism of the implementation of the electoral process, the situation in the media, the threat to the fundamental human rights and freedoms.

“The report noted that Macedonia continues to show a decline, particularly in the categories of media independence, the fight against corruption, electoral processes and civil society. “Freedom House” ascertained what was contained in the report of the expert group of the European Commission, prepared by Reinhard Priebe, which indicate any systemic abuses of power by Nikola Gruevski. International reports are clear, there is no room for different interpretations or unrealistic perceptions. Things have to change. Macedonia needs to restore freedom, democracy and European values. It was Nikola Gruevski and his closest associates, who usurped the state and made it the country with the hybrid rule, to withdraw through the organization of government, which won’t include makers of problems, to create minimum conditions for fair and democratic elections in Macedonia “, reacts SDSM.
