Northern Macedonia: Opposition submits interpellation to 111th place on corruption list

VMRO-DPMNE MP Gordana Siljanovska Davkova briefed Parliament today on the filing of an interpellation against two members of the government; Ljupco Nikolovski as Deputy Prime Minister for Fighting Corruption, Sustainable Development and Human Resources and Minister of Justice Bojan Maric.

“These days we are seeing intense ‘seismic activity’ in ‘Macedonia’; ‘earthquakes’ are shaking the country every day, yet we are simultaneously facing an issue with the force of an earthquake, the shock that came from ‘Transparency International’, because 111th place on the corruption list means free fall; it means a tectonic break from the European political, democratic and legal space and a repositioning towards Eurasia and Africa along with Mongolia, Panama, Sierra Leone. Maybe this is the time for cleaning. Why am I saying this? “Because a similar phenomenon can be found in literature only in Dante Alighieri’s Hell,” said Siljanovska Davkova.

According to Davkova, with the country ranking 111, the creation of a separate ministry is an institutional illusion.

The VMRO-DPMNE MP continued to fire on the government and the Minister of Justice, describing him as Minister of Justice, adding that corruption has deepened in the last four years. She noted that the government’s philosophy of non-imposition of sanctions promotes corruption and crime.

In conclusion, Davkova stressed that, instead of interpellations, citizens should look at resignations.

In addition to interpellations against Nikolovski and Maricic, along with the “Left”, VMRO-DPMNE submitted an interpellation on the work of Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Nikola Dimitrov, with the parliamentary process under way.
