Members of the ruling majority in Parliament refused the proposal from VMRO-DPMNE to cut the excise duty tax by half. Macedonia is facing a new hike today, as the price of oil skyrockets in the global markets.

  • Our proposal would’ve reduced the price of diesel by 9.5 denars and that of gas by 13 denars. They will continue to plunder our citizens. The Government takes 22 denars from every liter of gas in excise tax, and 13 denars in value added tax, said VMRO representative Ljupco Prendzov.
