By bne IntelliNews May 28, 2012
The parliament rejected a motion against deputy PM and minister of finance Zoran Stavreski, Dnevnik daily reported. Some 61 lawmakers voted against the motion, while 40 supported it. The motion was submitted by opposition lawmakers, who claimed that Stavreski should resign over constant indebting of the country, high poverty and unemployment rates, financing of the "Skopje2014" project, lack of capital, infrastructure and energy projects, poor results of the fiscal decentralization, equitable regional development processes and the "Buy a House, Buy a Flat" project, state news agency MIA reported. During the parliamentary debates, Stavreski said that economic and foreign investment growth has been much higher under ruling VMRO-DPMNE, when compared with the performance achieved when opposition SDSM was in power. The minister also pointed out that they have not raised taxes, cut salaries, pensions or welfare and have also prevented layoffs, despite many challenges Macedonia is facing as a small and open economy.
