The Rule of Law

Aleksandar Nikoloski

They say that crises are always a good reason to look back, to conduct analysis and to move forward. This is also the case with VMRO-DPMNE this time. Let’s look back and see what has happened, conduct a good analysis and move forward.

VMRO-DPMNE, in its 27 years of existence has had several critical points after which the party, and by cleansing the part that replaced its productivity with a burden to the party, has always come out much more powerful and more organized. What happened at the latest session of the Central Committee was necessary for the organization to continue forward for the country’s prosperity.

VMRO-DPMNE owns that rare mechanism that most parties do not have, which is clearing everything that has been ballast and has brought bad practices from the past. Unlike VMRO-DPMNE, which continuously dismisses its people who are synonymous with improper actions, SDSM has never distanced itself from its transition personnel who are still within that political party.  We have not heard a word about the transition rascals, nor about the situation in which they left Macedonia. In both cases, it has reflected on the state, in a positive way in the first case, negative in the second, because the circumstances and practices in political parties reflect on the state as well. This is the big difference between us and SDSM.

After the latest session of the Central Committee in VMRO-DPMNE, nothing will be the same, we are done with mortgages and bad practices in the party.

In the name of the European values ​​that we all call upon, some only declaratively and essentially, the Public Prosecutor’s Office must initiate a procedure for the pressures that were made on the Members of Parliament to vote on constitutional changes. If the rule of law is the first principle in what we call European values, ​​then investigation of these cases is indispensable. Certainly, we do not expect that the investigation will be carried out immediately, because the government protects those who put the pressure, which we excluded from the party, but of course there will be justice because it is a value that we carry within us.

After all, the contours of the political scene were finally drawn up in Macedonia, on the one hand there is a new coalition between people who carry a big load of burden with them, on the other hand there are people who do not carry any kind of burden from the past. The choice of the citizens, whenever it may happen, will be undoubtedly for a prosperous Macedonia.

Throughout these days many questions were raised about the system of rule of law and the law-abiding state. The question arises whether they exist or are only used for political interest. Because, when it is the latter, then there is no security and it represents an open road to ruin. And therefore a strong commitment to building an independent system, a truly independent system of rule of law and strong institutions is necessary.

It became unbearable to hear how law and justice were being traded for the entire 27 years. And when they are gone, then there is no state or system. Who would develop a business, or invest themselves to do more good, if there is no legal certainty and is jeopardized by the future. Who would remain to live in a country in which basic human rights are not guaranteed. Who would want to live in a country where justice is abused with a political order? These are the rational questions that need an answer. Let’s look at this issue responsibly and devotedly. Because integration into NATO and the EU cannot happen without a strong system of rule of law. These are precisely the issues that discussed first at the start of negotiations with the EU. These are the questions to which we must find a sustainable answer.

We witnessed a strong manipulation with them in the past few days. I hope that the actions of VMRO-DPMNE will contribute to the return to the right path and the termination of the abuse of justice and justice.

This is the only way for Macedonia.
