Macedonia is having civil unrest following the unrest going on in Spain and Greece. Macedonia doing so just now over the recent proposed 2013 budget, apparently the austerity plans aren’t going over well here either. BBC reported on the issue:
The opposition say the budget will add to country’s debt burden.
They have suggested around 1,000 amendments to the budget to bring down spending, reportedly accusing the government of planning spending for grandiose monuments, expensive cars and furniture.
They accuse the ruling coalition of abusing parliamentary process by pushing for a vote on the budget before amendments had been considered.
“If those in power continue down this path they will suspend the constitution… and kill democracy in Macedonia before our eyes,” Social Democrat leader Branko Crvenkovski told reporters.
