    DPmNE had a coalition with DUI. The only "first" here is a Macedonian party that describes itself as multi ethnicity.

    Probably not the best thread to put this in, but this morning SDSM formed a Coalition with one of the Albanian parties: Kasami's BESA. So, they will go to elections together in April.

    This is the first such formal coalition to take place. So far, NO Albanian party has ever joined either sdsm or vmro-dpmne.

    Dui have already "slammed" this development as damaging to Albanian interests/votes (??).

    The press conference/event was conducted in both Macedonian and Albanian and the representatives stood in front of the Macedonian, Albanian, NATO and EU flags (if I'm not mistaken).

    May 12

    SKOPJE, North Macedonia — Stevo Pendarovski has been sworn in as the new president of North Macedonia, promising he will serve all citizens in a deeply divided society and will lobby European Union leaders to approve the start of his country’s accession talks in June.

    The 56-year-old was sworn in before lawmakers Sunday. He won the election May 5 in a tightly contested runoff with a conservative rival.

    The presidents of Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia and Kosovo attended the inauguration ceremony.

    Pendarovski is a strong supporter of the deal with Greece, finalized in February, that ended a decades-long dispute over the name Macedonia, in exchange for the prospect of NATO and European Union membership.

    Former president Gjorge Ivanov, who ended his second and last five-year term Sunday, was a fierce opponent of the name deal.

    Profile: North Macedonia's president-elect Stevo Pendarovski

    URL:


    SKOPJE, May 7 (Xinhua) -- Stevo Pendarovski, a politician and academic, was elected as the fifth President of North Macedonia on the second round of presidential elections held on Sunday.

    On March 3, North Macedonia's left-wing ruling Social Democratic Union (SDSM) nominated Pendarovski as its candidate for the post of president.

    Pendarovski, 56, also had the support of several smaller parties, including the Albanian Democratic Union for Integration (DIU), a junior partner in the ruling coalition.

    Pendarovski was born on April 3 in 1963 in Skopje, where he lives with his wife and son.

    In 1987, he graduated in law from the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje. He later earned an MA and a PhD in political sciences in the University's Institute for Sociological, Political and Juridical Research.

    Pendarovski's political career kicked off in 1998 as an Assistant-Minister for Public Relations in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and as head of the Analytical and Research Department of that ministry where he worked until 2001.

    From 2001 to 2004, he was the National Security and Chief Foreign Policy Adviser to President Boris Trajkovski until Trajkovski's tragic death. In 2004-2005, Pendarovski headed the country's State Election Commission.

    Later from 2005 to 2009, he went on to serve again as National Security and Chief Foreign Policy Adviser to the country's next president, Branko Crvenkovski.

    On March 4, 2014, he was elected by the main opposition party at that time, the Social Democrats, as their candidate for the April 2014 presidential election, where he was defeated by outgoing President Gjorge Ivanov.

    Since 2008, Pendarovski worked as an Assistant Professor in International Security, Foreign Policy and Globalization at the University American College in Skopje.

    Before his nomination as a presidential candidate, Pendarovski was coordinating the country's accession into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

    Pendarovski's mother language is Macedonian, but he also has excellent knowledge of English language.

    In his second bid for the presidency, he was a strong defender of the name deal with Greece, which according to him will enable the country to move forward with membership in NATO and possibly in the European Union (EU).

    The slogan used by Pendarovski during his election campaign "Forward Together" reflected of his main platform of unity.

    According to Pendarovski, NATO and EU membership are the country's key strategic goal, saying they will bring more foreign investment, create jobs and higher wages and prevent young people leaving the country.

    Pendarovski said that the first thing he will do when he takes office is to sign the 25 decrees that Ivanov has refused to sign.

    The president holds a largely ceremonial post in North Macedonia, but is the supreme commander of the armed forces and also signs off on parliamentary legislation.

    Pendarovski is expected to swear in as President of North Macedonia during the plenary session of the Parliament on May 10.

    I think the selling now was who gets what kickbacks and positions.

    Nema Pravda nema mir chants seem to be a joke now.

    Most people vote for the parties in Macedonia because they create these parasites who can then be herded to rallies and voting booths whenever they see fit.

    Give one member per family a job and you will then gain some party parasites who can be on call. (This is not limited to Macedonian backed parties only, DUI etc use the same tactics).

    We cannot include people who don't give two hoots as being part of this movement.


    A group of people on facebook sharing "Bojkotiram" memes does not seem to me to be a "movement".
    The prevailing movement in Macedonia has always been the apathy movement...roughly at the same time as the bowel movement

    Macedonia isn’t a place, it’s a people, and the people are global. Time for the Macedonian people to focus on representing themselves wherever they are in the world and stop wasting time supporting or trying to influence apathetic internationalists and foreign or failed states who have claimed or lay claim to represent the Macedonians.

    The boycot movement was the dumbest "strategy" in history, strangely a lot of brain dead macedonians saw it as a victory.

    So instead of learning that boycotting does not work and forming a plan, they did the same 'strategy'

    The result is we have some brain washed fools thinking this result is the golden ticket to getting into the EU, or people leaving in mass numbers to switzerland, or people simply not caring and riding it out

    Basically - the country is fucked

    Its over 'beh'

    I wonder what plan the boycott movement has now.
    A real boycott? Anarchy? Revolution? A grand plan?

    Or let Zaev and Pendarovski rule as they please and wait 2 years for the parliamentary elections to boycott them while posting Facebook comments?

    The final nail in the coffin for a dream of a Macedonia for the Macedonians.

    Now the beginning of a soulless, quasi-cosmopolitan, corrupt state without a purpose or vision.

    Democracy at work, where if enough traitors and idiots band together they get the win. This is what happens when things that are cherished and valued aren’t set in stone. Not that it would’ve made much difference had the other person won. Macedonia was sold out long ago (and many times over) by its politicians and unworthy inhabitants.
