PES and SDUM FYR Macedonia news

The PES has followed with increased concern the recent events in FYR Macedonia. This is why PES decided to visit the country, to talk to our associate party from SDSM, a PES member and also to get a comprehensive understanding of the situation in the ground.

Today the PES delegation has spoken with journalists and members from civil society, and with the leadership of SDSM. Tomorrow they will meet the EU Representation, and Ministers from the Government (Deputy Prime Minister Fatmir Besimi and Minister of Interior Gordana Kanjkuloska).


The PES has followed with increased concern the recent developments taking place in FYR Macedonia. In a televised press conference, Macedonian PM Gruevski accused Zoran Zaev, leader of the Macedonian Social Democratic Union of espionage and violent threats against government officials, but so far no official charges have been brought against him by the Public Prosecutor. The accusations came a week before he was about to release alleged evidence of widespread phone tapping and electoral fraud on part of the Macedonian government.
