Thousands of supporters of VMRO-DPMNE rallied at the Boris Trajkovski Sports Centre on Sunday at which VMRO-DPMNE leader and Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, backed by all his government ministers and numerous party officials, reiterated that the opposition allegations against him had been “created” by foreign intelligence services and their domestic collaborators for the purpose of destabilizing the country and seizing power.
“I know that Macedonia will get out of this stronger. I know that those who orchestrated all of this have underestimated us and did not take into consideration our people’s love of their country and future. Therefore, we are going to win, all our citizens are going to win. I call upon you to stand up because we have a campaign ahead of us, from city to city, from door to door. We have a lot of work to do, many more projects to carry out and many more moments to be proud of.
“Chin up and let us show them Macedonian is much more than what they try to present, that Macedonian is much bigger than the petty interests of a handful of people and certain structures, that Macedonia is stronger than the various scenarios and foreign agendas, and that Macedonians are courageous and honorable people. They won’t break Macedonia, not in our time, not until the last one of us breathes,” Prime Minister Gruevski said.
