On the referendum in Macedonia

On the 30th of September, the people of one small peaceful country from 
the Balkan showed their resistance against the blackmailing politics of 
the biggest imperialist powers and their intervention to force their 
interests, the entrance of the Republic of Macedonia in the NATO 
alliance. On this day, Macedonians, Albanians, Turks, Vlachs, Serbs, 
Roma people, Bosnians and members of all other ethnicities in the 
republic - in solidarity through an organized massive boycott of the 
illegal referendum - demonstrated unity in the Resistance to Imperialism 
and the corrupt elites that were conducting these politics.

Despite the strong efforts of worldwide politicians, such as the German 
chancellor Angela Merkel, the United States Secretary of Defense James 
Mattis, and the Austrian prime minister Sebastian Kurz, who visited our 
country last month, and the expensive and manipulative Government 
campaign for the alleged prosperity that our country would have in the 
NATO alliance, the resistance of the people against domestic and world 
corrupt politicians was not broken.

At the end of the referendum, the results were clear - the voters’ 
turnout of 36% deemed the boycott campaign a huge success. Now, the 
Government is faced with a difficult situation. On the one hand, they 
have an enormous pressure from the Western imperialist forces to ratify 
the agreement by any means necessary, and on the other hand, the 
people’s rejection of the agreement is forcing making the Government’s 
obedience much more controversial. They have to either ignore the voice 
of the people and try to vote the agreement in the Parliament with the 
full knowledge that this could bring destabilisation, or risk to call 
for extraordinary elections in an effort to secure the parliamentary 
majority that they need.

Despite the many interpretations of the result of the referendum, it is 
unsuccessful because it did not reach the required census of 50% - a 
statement that even the State Election Committee made. This, of course, 
did not stop the USA and the some of EU bureaucrats to hypocritically 
proclaim the referendum as successful as thus putting open pressure to 
the fragile Macedonian Government.

Levica (The Left) is calling the Government to keep its given word and 
resign and the Parliament to call for extraordinary elections, because 
the result of the referendum shows, unequivocally and explicitly, what 
has been known throughout the entirety of this year: that this 
Government’s vision doesn’t coincide with the people’s will. Thus, the 
only democratical act left for the current Government is  to resign, to 
call for new parliamentary elections on which the people will elect a 
new Government that will represent the people’s will.
