Yesterday was the deadline that Hristijan Mickoski announced at the beginning of last month as the date when VMRO-DPMNE will publicly announce its position on the referendum.

The Executive Committee of the main opposition party is expected to meet today, after which VMRO-DPMNE may announce whether it fully supports or rejects the referendum, or will leave its members and sympathizers to make an independent decision on whether or how to vote in the referendum.

Unlike the headquarters, prominent party members have already expressed their views on the referendum ballot question. MP Antonio Milososki expressed his position that he would boycott the referendum, and “the reformer” Petar Bogojeski will vote, because a vote “against” is a vote for Macedonia.
