TA NEA: SKOPJE'S BAD BOXER
The Greek Ta Nea newspaper publishes a portrait of the Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski titled “Skopje’s bad boxer.”
The newspaper says that the PM, who started his professional career as a boxer, has one great loss and one great victory on the political ring. Five years ago he ended with a knockout the internal political battle in VMRO, while at the NATO summit in Bucharest he was knocked out by the Greek PM Kostas Karamanlis, who managed to veto the membership of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
The Ta Nea pays attention to the fact that Gruevski’s father has his ancestors in the Greek town of Florina (Lerin). The newspaper says that in 2006 when Gruevski’s daughter was born he was so happy that he asked the band to play Greek songs.
In conclusion, the paper writes that Gruevski is the worst person Greece came upon in the negotiations on the solution to the name dispute, because he is unpredictable and nobody knows how far he can go.
MD: Unbelievable, the Greek media...more stupid articles every day. Anyway, he really was a boxer, and he did great untill now, Support for Nikola!
