SKOPJE – “My mandate as Prime Minister ends in 2020. If the referendum fails, we are probably done with politics. Why do we need to rule when our country has no future?”, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev at the conference “Macedonia looks ahead: it is the time to get the EU train” in Skopje on 1 September.

“Hence, I have my views regarding the responsibility of all the main political factors about the state, including VMRO-DPMNE, which should be working on securing a prosperous future for the Republic of Macedonia”, he added.

He again urged the opposition VMRO-DPMNE to join and enable a successful referendum for, as he said, a successful future for the country.

“We need to be united. The opposition and the government could possibly differ and disagree on many issues, but when we create history we should stand together, because there is no alternative for our country, and therefore, I will not stop calling the opposition to join the referendum”, Zaev said.
