Macedonia Press Review – October 15, 2012

Political parties swell with new members; Laws prohibit Macedonians to trade in gold

DNEVNIK
Becoming a member of a political party has become a desired status for Macedonians as this thing often ensures entry in to a more pleasant life and prosperity in the career.  This is how sociologists and political science experts explain the increased number of party members. The ruling centre right VMRO DPMNE party yesterday boasted that it reached famous 40.000 members only in the capital Skopje. During the summer the opposition Social Democrats constantly informed of new members pouring in.

UTRINSKI VESNIK
The information that the world gold reserves are in the climb have again opened the question why in Macedonia only the state has the right to invest in gold plates and not the people.  The laws in the country are restrictive towards common people. They are not allowed to buy investment gold and also cannot play on foreign trade markets. Experts say this is due to the authorities fear from an outpour of foreign currency.

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