Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM) Chair Dimitar Kovacevski and VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski met on the eve of the start of the election campaign for the presidential elections in North Macedonia in what was essentially a two-hour pre-election debate in the Channel 5 television studio. The leaders of the two largest parties in the country debated in support of their candidates for the presidential post, Stevo Pendarovski and Gordana Siljanovska, as well as on the European path of the country, the relations with the neighbouring countries and the economic highlights in the programmes of the two parties for the upcoming elections. Both reiterated their differing views related to the condition in the negotiating framework with the EU which requires the inclusion of Bulgarians in the country's Constitution. Kovacevski said that voting on these changes is something that the country's Parliament should do, because the European Union is "the only chance for changes in the country." Mickoski stressed that changes in the Constitution "under Bulgarian dictation" will not be voted on.
