Meeting of Leaders Took Place in Skopje Without Opposition Representatives

Skopje. The Prime Minister and leader of the ruling in Macedonia VMRO-DPMNE party Nikola Gruevski organized working breakfast for the representatives of the main politicial parties from the ruling coalition and the opposition. Although they had been invited to the meeting the chairmen of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM) and the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI) Radmila Sekerinska and Ali Ahmeti failed to turn up. Only the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic Party of Albanians (DPA) Menduh Taci was present but the party is participating in the coalitional cabinet. Gruevski has expressed his regret for the absence of the leaders from the main oppositional parties. “The strategy to put the cabinet in a situation to be criticized is obvious. Then they want to accuse the cabinet that it doesn’t want dialogue or cannot realize it”, Gruevski stated. He pointed out that they had to discuss the change of the election law. Gruevski also announced that a new meeting of the leaders could be organized in future.
