Following the political crisis in Macedonia, with ongoing civil protests against current government and recent escalation of violence in forms of still unclear confrontation between a criminal armed​​ group and police resulting in a number of deaths on both sides, LYMEC expresses its concern for the state of democracy and security in the country.

As the situation continues to escalate on the daily basis​, LYMEC together with the ALDE party, ​in a resolution adopted at the C​ouncil meeting on ​9th of May 2015, called upon the EU institutions to take further actions aimed at stabilisation of the ongoing political crisis in Macedonia​. The resolutions also notes that the current government must resign and​ a transition government consisting of all parties must be put in place with the aim to address the civic unrests and ​setup an independent investigation of all allegation against the current government officials.​

“The situation in Macedonia​ is deeply worrying and our key concern is that the ongoing political crisis will lead to further destabilisation of the country and escalation of conflicts. Public unrests, led by young Macedonians is a signal to all of us to take the situation seriously and help them find a way to democratic and genuinely open and free Macedonia.” say LYMEC president Vedrana Gujic.

LYMEC member organisation LDP Youth Macedonia is actively advocating the urgent resolution of the political and security crisis, calling for political responsibility of the government for the recent events. LYMEC supports them and the announced public protests for democracy in Macedonia on May 17.
