Time for change in the Foreign Ministry of N. Macedonia

BY SELIM IBRAIMI- Now that Zaev’s government will be voted on in the Parliament of Northern Macedonia, Albanians have taken up some important positions in diplomacy and finance. Ali Ahmeti’s DUI has managed, among other ministries, to secure the foreign and finance ministries. Other parties called on behalf of the Albanian electorate have taken over several ministries and deputy ministers from patron Zoran Zaev.

Let us concentrate on diplomacy where Albanian cadres are discriminated and where we have an institutional nationalism within the ministry and in the diplomatic network. Since independence, the ministry has employed people from political parties, close family members and all those who have been desirable to the state system and secret service. Now that Ahmeti’s DUI will take over this ministry, serious changes must be made in new professional and non-partisan experienced staff. Although the proposed Minister Bujar Osmani is an old friend of former Minister Nikola Dimitrov, he must develop smart diplomacy and  create new jobs that take place in the ministry and of course without professional and personal resentment. Only in this way the EU wil evaluate us and of course DUI will be acquitted of the old accusations  and here I will mention the ministers who prejudice them from outside. Time for change in the foreign ministry. (ISSDMaqedonia-@CSSDMacedonia)
