Constitutional amendments – political realism for progress towards the EU according to Pendarovski

For the presidential candidate Stevo Pendarovski, the reality is that without constitutional amendments, Macedonia will not advance on the road to the EU.

– What is the new realism? Unfortunately, we are blocked and we know why, the main opposition party says in no way do we vote for it under Bulgarian dictation and so on. If this is the new realism, then we are self-blocked. We can talk about Bulgarian diktats and miracles within the campaign, that only as Bulgarians we can enter the EU, it's just a political mantra to fool the people until you come to power", said Pendarovski on Thelma's Top Topic.

Regarding VMRO-DPMNE's position on the amendments to the Constitution, Pendarovski says that this is done only for the sake of collecting political points, and for that reason he is consciously blocking the integration process.

"The day before yesterday there was an interview with a man from the German CDU, a sister party of VMRO-DPMNE, who came here to help them and told them this is the way. I want to tell them: Leave the campaign, I understand why you are doing this, because on that issue you get political points, on another you don't. But now, let's face this new political realism. It is a shame if Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia and Bosnia and Herzegovina become candidates, when we have made some progress, now we go back because of your attitude that only as Bulgarians we will enter the EU, which is an absolute nebula. VMRO-DPMNE has another thesis: let's change the Constitution today, but the changes will be valid when we become members. Can it be done? Which of the European factors promises you that such a thing is possible? - pointed out Pendarovski.
