The Party of European Socialists is pleased by the great victory of our Macedonian associate party SDSM in the second round of the local elections, where it won 50 out of 90 municipalties, including the capital, Skopje.

PES president Sergei Stanishev said:

'This impressive result reflects the good work and temperance of the national government coalition, led by SDSM and Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. His government has been able to avoid artificial conflict, bring unity and focus on the needs of the people, rather than the needs of the political class, as it was the case with the previous conservative government.

Now it is time to translate this positive wave to the municipalties, where the services for the people are provided, to improve living standards for all, as it has been the case on the national level’.
