VMRO-DPMNE: Corrupt and incompetent Zaev pushes Macedonia into bankruptcy and poverty

The Government of Zoran Zaev increased the public debt, which increased over 1 billion euros in just three months. From 5.5 billion euro at the end of the first quarter to an incredible 6.5 billion euro as of the second quarter in 2020. There are no capital projects, nor has anyone seen that money, and in addition to that, the Government continues with new borrowing of 38 million euros, it is written in the VMRO-DPMNE statement.

Namely, the realization of capital investments in the first half of the year is only 22.51%, i.e. it has not realized even a quarter of what was planned. Further worrying is the fact that industrial production reaches double-digit decline of 15% in May and 30% in June. The unserious attitude of the Government results in over 30.000 citizens who did not receive their April salaries, and many citizens lost their jobs. Naked populism, manipulations, and “shining” have resulted in a 7.5% increase in electricity prices, which will increase the monthly expenses of citizens who already live in poverty. Due to the deficit of funds that is predicted for this fall, i.e. for the period when the state will not have funds to service the basic obligations, SDSM and Zoran Zaev came up with a “brilliant” plan to rob the people and increase the price of electricity, which in all European countries kept the price or was reduced. Due to such bad policies, every family in the Republic of Macedonia is indebted for 2000 euros, and the situation will only get worse because neither the Government nor SDSM have a plan and strategy for dealing with the economic crisis, the statement said.

We need stable, firm and thoughtful moves that will stabilize the situation and raise the Macedonian economy, and not politicians who find the only salvation for their own mistakes in stealing their own people, say the VMRO-DPMNE.
