Skopje, 12 August 2017 (MIA) - VMRO-DPMNE MPs filed Saturday a no-confidence motion against Minister of Culture Robert Alagjozovski.
VMRO-DPMNE MP Ane Laskoska said there has been a backward trend in the culture sector since Alagjozovski's appointment, because of partisan employments, selection and discrimination of artists and cultural activists, negligence of cultural heritage, stoppage of capital investments in the culture field etc.
"We believe this institution has reached the bottom since Robert Alagjozovski was appointed minister 70 days ago. He needs to go and be replaced with an honest person, one who takes care of the cultural and historical heritage, respecting all artists and cultural activists, one who will promote Macedonia's culture both in the country and abroad", said Laskoska.
She also referred to the cuts in the culture sector through the recently adopted budget rebalance.
Today's no-confidence motion is the sixth by the opposition party VMRO-DPMNE over the past week, following those against the ministers of agriculture, labor and social policy, foreign affairs, finance and environment. ik/14:05
