Regardless of the outcome of the forming of a new government in the forthcoming period, whether it will be formed at all and who will form it, VMRO-DPMNE will not negotiate and will not allow changes in the Constitution in order to introduce bilingualism on the whole territory of the country and for prolonging the mandate of the Special Prosecutor’s Office (SPO) as was stated in the party’s reaction to yesterday’s press release by DUI.
“The reasons were stated many times in the public, and are based on the tendency for a Unitarian state, protection of the constitutional order, our political tendencies that were stated in the pre-election period, the Ohrid agreement as well as the agreement from June-July 2015 (The Przino agreement) that this coalition has thoroughly obeyed as it was agreed upon and signed and has no intention of changing it” as was stated in the VMRO-DPMNE’s press release.
They also state that SPO is a political instrument “in the hands of a center of power and its domestic instruments for blackmailing each politician that will fight for the national interests of the Macedonian nation and Macedonia’s state interests including its citizens.”
“SPO is a button that will be pressed each time when someone dares not to play as someone from abroad has dictated to play. SPO is a tool that is used to degrade and negate the sovereignty and the independence of the Macedonian state. SPO is not independent and neutral, and it has no connection with the law nor with the justice. SPO is an instrument for prolonging the crisis and for holding Macedonia as a hostage and that is why we will not agree Macedonia to be held in custody further and to exist as an instrument for disciplining of each person that will fight to protect the national and state interests. No allowing the prolonging of SPO’s mandate is not fear but courage and defiance,” as was stated in VMRO-DPMNE’s press release.
After yesterday’s session of DUI’s central presidency, Ali Ahmeti’s party announced that the equal use of the official Albanian language, the integration into NATO and the European Union including the prolonging the mandate of the Special Prosecutor’s Office in order to clear out all of the doubts that have resulted from the telephone tapping scandal “are the aims that cannot be a subject to negotiation.”
