Macedonia Press Review – March 14, 2013

Local elections campaign is dull and uninventive. Mayoral candidates focus on gasification.

Observers say for the daily that the election campaign for the March 24 local elections is boring. There is no radically new approach and everything comes down to the well-known cliché. The opposition Social Democrats has focused more on national issues and the ruling VMRO DPMNE party talks more about local issues. Both do not spare words to vilify their opponents.

The investigation carried out by the daily reveals that the long awaited gasification of the country is beginning to become reality and that the March local elections can only speed up the process. It is no coincidence that the gasification is included as a priority in many electoral platforms. The fact that candidates emphasize gasification is because they will have obligation once they come to power to start building the grid in their municipalities, as part of the second stage of the national gasification plan.

Balkan Insight has not verified the reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
