We have discussed several times that the price of constitutional amendments will be higher after the elections. It would have been better to make the constitutional amendments by now, without any additional questions, said the Vice Prime Minister for European Affairs, Bojan Maricic, in Telma's "Top Topic".

He added that now the questions for the election of the president in the Parliament, which is open from several parties, as well as the question of 20 percent and the Albanian language, are being opened.

- The next time, whenever the Constitution is opened, many questions will be opened. That's why we wanted it to happen now, because we were limited to one question. Now, after the elections, it is legitimate for every party, and perhaps SDSM, to have ideas on how to improve the Constitution - said Maricic.

The Vice Prime Minister believes that Stevo Pendarovski is the candidate with the best chance to win and lead the country in the direction of European integration.

- At this moment, it is responsible to elect a president in order to have a stable institution that will guarantee the path of the state in the right direction. It would be responsible in the second round to support the candidate who has the best chance to win and lead the country in the direction of European integration, and that is Stevo Pendarovski - said Maricic.

He added that on the day of the second round of the presidential elections and the day of the parliamentary elections, on May 8, the interests of all pro-European forces and parties will meet, and after that day there will be a president elected by the pro-European forces and a majority for the government. which will continue the path in that direction.

- The anti-European idea is a loser and leads us into a tunnel from which we will not come out for another 15 years. The illusions of VMRO-DPMNE that we can unilaterally revise something that the whole world has verified will not bring anything positive. That is why I am sure that in these elections as well, the coalition led by SDSM will be successful and will be a pillar of the next government - Maricic said.

 

The Vice Prime Minister added that SDSM has a clear plan and intention to bring Macedonia to EU membership by 2030.

According to him, VMRO-DPMNE have neither intention nor plan for Macedonia's entry into the EU.

- We have paid dearly for the delusions of VMRO-DPMNE and their claims that there is a chance to negotiate a better deal. We also waited for a better deal with Greece, which did not come to the table, and ten years later we solved the problem under worse conditions. They have neither a clear intention to solve it, nor a plan - said Maricic

 

He added that the plan of VMRO-DPMNE was for Bulgaria to implement three judgments from the European Court of Human Rights, for the European Council to guarantee us the Macedonian identity, and even now the Macedonian language is guaranteed in the negotiation framework, and we also have a confirmation from the German Bundestag and all about identity.

 

- It is a frivolous approach from VMRO-DPMNE. I am sure that they are ready to enter into renegotiations that will last another 15 years - said Maricic.

The Vice Prime Minister added that during that period, Albania and Montenegro will become members of the EU, and the country will remain on the margins.

- The anti-European idea is a loser and leads us into a tunnel from which we will not come out for another 15 years. The illusions of VMRO-DPMNE that we can unilaterally revise something that the whole world has verified will not bring anything positive. That is why I am sure that in these elections as well, the coalition led by SDSM will be successful and will be a pillar of the next government - said Maricic.
