Standart - Bulgaria | 27/05/2015

Macedonia's opposition no better

In the ongoing protests in Macedonia the social democratic opposition party SDSM and its leader Zoran Zaev are billing themselves as the best political alternative to the ruling conservative VMRO-DPMNE. But Zaev is exactly the same kind of politician as Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, the daily Standart argues: "Zoran Zaev is part of Macedonia's political elite. … The fight being fought out on the streets between Gruevski and Zaev, who are demonising each other, is not what the young state of Macedonia needs right now. In the 24 years since it gained independence both parties have each ruled for ten years. Both have suffered losses because of the same type of accusations that are being levelled at Gruevski now. The only difference is that Gruevski has outshone all his predecessors with his audacity."
