Vecer: Power and Opposition in Macedonia will Cooperate in Achieving Country’s Strategic Aims

Skopje. The executive power and the opposition in Macedonia will cooperate in order to achieve the county’s strategic aims, Macedonia’s Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and Radmila Sekerinska, the current leader of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM), made an agreement at their first leaders’ meeting on November 8th, the Macedonian Vecer newspaper writes.
Macedonia’s Prime Minister expressed his opinion that the ruling party and the opposition must aim at one and the same thing - improvement of Macedonian population’s living standards. According to Gruevski, it is important to come to an agreement on the front burner issues, like the name of Greece, the democracy of the Kosovo boundary and key legislation projects.
SDSM will seek dialog with the main parties both from the ruling power and the opposition, for which the European Commission (EC) appealed in its latest report, Sekerinska noted.
She also announced that she plans to introduce change in the political debate, which, at present, leads only to mutual accusations.
