The topic of responsibility for the tragedy in the modular covid hospital in Tetovo is part of tonight's duel between Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski on Kanal 5 television.

"The responsibility is great with the government, with me as Prime Minister, with all institutions, but I said that I want to see the results of the investigation, to make decisions. He is a Minister and Deputy Minister of Health. In conditions of a pandemic, serious challenges have arisen, to deal with a pandemic, with all the challenges of the unknown, the pandemic still exists… I understand and welcome the ethical act of responsibility, but there is also the responsibility for what the continuity of the system means, responsibility "above all for what lies ahead, because there will still be serious challenges." said Zaev.

He adds that he never said that if he found guilt in Filipce and Hasani, he would not accept their resignations.

"My responsibility is greater because I am also the Prime Minister, because we all know that we have installed modular containers, previously made in factories. The law clearly states that, informed the Prime Minister and pointed out that about the tragedy "they will answer questions while they are alive".

According to Mickoski, Zaev should not think at all about accepting the offered resignations of the Minister of Health Venko Filipce and his deputy, Ilir Hasani.

"If you sit down and talk to the relatives of those people who lost their lives, you will see all the anger and revolt they feel. "If there is someone and a little bit of conscience in the Government, and here the most called is Mr. Zoran Zaev, not only will he not think, but he will immediately accept these resignations." said Mickoski.
