THE ECONOMIST ABOUT MACEDONIA
The Economist is reporting about Macedonia and the candidacy for the European Union saying that; everybody is expecting Croatia and Turkey to join next and a few would remember Macedonia. Macedonians have got used to being unloved and ignored. What is more annoying is that the world notices them only when bad things happen.
It also says that after the elections in july, Nikola Gruevski needed a coalition partner but did not made a coalition with the biggest Albanian party, wich was the party of Ali Ahmeti, but rather with a smaller party, wich we all know and heard of.
The most interesting thing of the report was that former Albanian guerilla fighters have been coming to Ali Ahmeti to suggest that, unless his party is taken back into the government, they should take up the arms again. According to the economist MR Ahmeti has told them to keep cool but adds that he cannot take responsibility for the consequences if his party continues to be ignored.
MD: Very good report of the Economist! Nobody in Macedonia is waiting for a new 2001 that would be catastrophic for both sides and mainly for the future of our country, but some do not understand that.
