    Consider this also.

    When it came to who would represent Macedonia in Ottoman elections, and parliament, the Greek State and Bulgarian State collaborated closely as to how many Greeks and Bulgarians would represent Macedonia on the Turkish Council, and in Parliament.

    The number of Bulgarians and Greeks that were to represent Macedonia was "in accord with population figures". p. 10, Vavoukos, C.A., Greek Macedonian Strugle for Freedom (Institute of Balkan Studies, 1973.

    If you consider how the Ottoman classified Christians in Macedonia, and how those population figures false represented Macedonia as a land of Greek Patriarchists, and Bulgarian Exarchists - we can see how the Macedonians were effectively shut out, and shut down.
