We will not have any elections or a more clear demonstration than the upcoming referendum. This message will be conveyed to the public by September 30th, therefore our message is for everyone to exercise their right and express their opinion, said Minister of Defense Radmila Sekerinska while responding to a journalist’s question whether early parliamentary elections are plan “B” after MPs from VMRO – DPMNE said they will not vote on constitutional changes.

When asked whether the constitutional amendments made by the Greek side were received by the Macedonian government through the non-paper, Sekerinska pointed out that during this tome, they are being bombarded with lies and untruths. The goal, she said, is that we should again focus on the needs of the people, rather than focusing on the needs of VMRO-DPMNE and added that if the Greek side thinks that this should be done, it would be part of the agreement.

“The lies are here to not allow us to focus on the essence. We have signed an agreement and that agreement is binding. The obligations are ours, not Greek,” said Sekerinska.

Asked whether a new leadership meeting or political dialogue was needed after the referendum, Sekerinska said that “she does not believe Macedonia needs another round of negotiations on amnesty for crime and corruption.”
