Zaev will not run for President

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said Tuesday he did not intend to run for President at next year’s elections. Zaev told reporters on the sidelines of the regional forum for the Istanbul Convention that he would rather complete the full PM term.
“I believe we should complete the full term, give the economy a chance, give reforms a chance. Macedonia finally deserves a full term,” said Zaev.

– Responsibility before the citizens and my views is that the PM term should be completed, to give a chance to the economy, a chance for reforms, for the whole process, and finally Macedonia deserves one full term, Zaev said and also expressed belief there are a number of better presidential candidates than himself.
