ATTEMPTS TO OVERCOME CRISIS IN GOVERNMENT
Government allies VMRO-DPMNE and the Democratic Party of Albanians (DPA) are expected to continue the talks to bridge the crisis in the coalition government.
After the late Sunday's meeting of the Prime Minister and VMRO-DPMNE leader Nikola Gruevski and DPA's deputy head Menduh Thaci, the follow-up of the talks is almost certain.
Gruevski and Thaci made no comments on the meeting that took place at VMRO-DPMNE quarters in Skopje.
The crisis in the coalition government deepened late Saturday after the statement of DPA's deputy head Menduh Thaci, saying his party will drop out.
He blamed the ruling VMRO-DPMNE of non-compliance with the agreement. Thaci also objected the lack of communication between the government allies.
Prime Minister Gruevski denied the alleged final agreement between VMRO-DPMNE and DUI, which was the main reason for DPA's outrage.
Gruevski made it clear that Thaci was kept updated about the negotiations with DUI. He qualified Ahmeti's statement that everything was agreed as "speculations".
