63. This political numerology has its source in the Bible and the Koran. It has been written…

As your love is better than life, my lips will glorify it. 8I stick to you; your right hand supports me.
The professor who became president is entering the runoff as a party favorite. Dr. Ivanov has been searching for his “I” for five years, for his political self-identity, thus representing all citizens. The VMRO – DPMNE candidate wants his second term after he broke the election ceiling of the ruling coalition of 400 thousand votes. In the first round of the presidential elections, Ivanov received over 436 thousand votes, only 20 thousand less than the winning 453 thousand in the decisive battle with Frckoski five years ago, but then with the votes of part of the Albanian electorate.

63.

In the evening of euphoria the figures of the municipalities were read. “A big thank you to Bitola, Shtip, Aerodrom, Gostivar…” not mentioning Shuto Orizari, the largest Roma colony in Europe. No “thank you” to the man who had arguments with female opponents, the businessman who was transporting voters, as his tour operators did with a great wave of immigrants from Shutka to Belgium, Sweden and Germany. Speechless were the partners before the most faithful Roma supporters, those who brought a big advantage to the favorite. Amdi’s middle finger remained floating straight in front of Branko’s rebels, when the Roma phalanx of Shuto opposed the SDSM crowd.

There is no thank you to the Different, from no one, least from Ivanov. He remained entrenched in the new rash of Macedonian ethnocentrism. As the subject to the ruling coalition and Team Macedonia, together with the Prime Minister he requires absolute parliamentary majority so that “DUI cannot blackmail us”… In one of his TV shows Ivanov directly threatened the Albanians gathered in the majority DUI – they will see when they submit their proposals for ambassadors…

The one who does not respond to insults becomes brutal in requirements. He does not need Albanians, Roma are forgotten…What cohabitation, ethnicity! Functioning democracy is needless, balance of the executive power.

Now they are all one, a figure – 63 minus 25

Fifteen years ago Tito Petkovski had 5O thousand votes lead over Boris Trajkovski. With one of his election and reckless statements that he did not need the votes of the Albanians, the SDSM candidate lost the advantage by replacing 100 thousands votes, as supporters of the DPA provided for the rival of VMRO-DPMNE. This time, the political history repeats itself as farce. The so-called Sushiko coalition can deliver neither thirty thousands of the votes in the Albanian ethnic community.

For integration DUI responded with a request for 25 seats, including the diaspora. They donot recognize the non consensus President, neither as a person, nor as an institution. This type of political terrorism brings Ahmeti to a dubious position as a factor in LC to whom EU and NATO are important.

Social pathetic about the economic successes of the government, built roads, subsidies for farmers are nested in the rhetoric of the candidate whose election slogan is “The country above all,”…There is no idea of state challenges – neighborliness, NATO agenda, the ARM standard, democratic freedoms. Judicial power has been subdued, although the President has nominated two members in the most representative guards of administration of justice, constitutionality and legality, in the Judicial Council and the Constitutional Court. The borrowing trend that future generations will pay is growing and dangerous. Although the President proposes him (or initiates dismissal), the Governor of the National Bank, the keeper of macroeconomic and financial stability, has no attitude from Ivanov – whether we owe little or much, where the money goes, what the world vagabond Subrata Roy does in Macedonia, whom he welcomed so warmly? A Greekcompany withdraws over three million Euros from Negotino and silence – from the Intelligence Agency that is under direct jurisdiction of the Head of the State? How did Macedonia become a money laundering country, who has taken over 4 billion Euros out of the state?

In the flurry of patriotism Ivanov once said -…which domestic company in Macedonia can invest the money as foreign and sponsored ones in the free economic zones. Maybe someone should have written down to him at least ten firms which in his past term invested at least 10 million Euros in domestic production for export? (Pekabesko, Renova…)

The old-new president is legitimized even before he can be legally elected. Ahmeti does not like him, the public underestimates him, part of his supporters and intellectual mentors give up. Will the weighty NO follow, as when the leader of VMRO-DPMNE Ljubco Georgievski, from the parliamentary platform, publicly renounced Boris Trajkovski?

The presidential campaign is in the shadow of the enraged vocabulary of Gruevski and Ahmeti. The most brutal party – nationalist manipulation in election rhetoric is back.

Ethno-patriotism has ambushed Macedonia. So far, it is only a number – 63, says the Prime Minister, 25 replies the leader of the coalition partner.

“Macedonia is all we have” – was the historic slogan of the first President Kiro Gligorov. After a quarter century of independence we are far from the patriotic enthusiasm to make or save the state. Everything has turned into a lucrative policy.
