Skopje, 7 October 2017 (MIA) - Seeking support from the citizens for the upcoming local elections, political party leaders relayed different messages while speaking at yesterday's rallies.
"Macedonia is taking a new democratic path toward justice, and the law will rule in the country. There will be justice and this is my strongest promise. There must be accountability and I give my word, because word is a word," SDSM leader Zoran Zaev said late Friday at a rally in Kicevo.
"Divisions lead us nowhere. Our perspective lies in our diversity. If we eliminate ethnic issues, we can commit ourselves to resolving the real problems - economy, new jobs, investments," the president of the ruling party said pointing out that the SDSM-led coalition is heralding a new time, which promotes an equal society for everybody.
Criminals are spreading lies, according to him. "I'm saying this openly to (Nikola) Gruevski, we are working differently than everything you have done," he stressed.
The VMRO-DPMNE leader, Nikola Gruevski, speaking at the party's rallies in Krusevo and Prilep conveyed several messages:
"The economy is declining. While I'm saying this I want to be taken seriously - these harmful economic policies are causing serious risks and far-reaching consequences. They must be stopped, the sooner the better," the opposition leader said in Krusevo.
"We have projects for Macedonia. We have a vision for Macedonia. We have solutions for Macedonia. We are offering a new era, an era in which not a single street will be left unasphalted or unlit, a new era in which every neighborhood will have its park," Gruevski said.
Criticizing SDSM for having no ideas and no solutions to a better life in the country, Gruevski in Prilep said VMRO-DPMNE had 'a clearly defined and a well-conceived' vision for Macedonia.
DUI leader Ali Ahmeti at a rally in the Skopje municipality of Saraj said: "Macedonia has no other alternative but cooperation between the largest communities - Albanians and Macedonians."
"We must look ahead and turn our heads towards the future, let leave the bad things in the past, but we mustn't forget them, because by forgetting the past we wouldn't know how to shape our future," Ahmeti noted at last night's rally. ba/12:30
