Majority of FYROM citizens reject name change in North Macedonia

Things do not look good for FYROM Prime Minister, Zoran Zaev, and his planned referendum on North Macedonia. Majority of his people reject the name change. A local news site conducted a poll about the name change agreement with Greece.The site reports that most ethnic Macedonians are against the proposition, while most ethnic Albanians support it.

The Macedonian news site MKD  writes: “Completely coincidentally, we know the outcome of the referendum question that the Prime Minister Zoran Zaev asked yesterday: are you in support of an EU and NATO memberships by accepting the name change agreement between the Republic of Macedonia and the Republic of Greece?

A poll by last Sunday made by the agency Market Vision showed the positions on the question: “are you in support of an EU and NATO memberships through a name change” to which 52.1% answered negatively, and 47% answered positively.”

The overwhelming 94% majority of Albanians asked (25% of the overall 1200 participants) viewed the name change as a good thing. 74.5% of ethnic Macedonians saw the name change as a bad thing.

The study reveals that 27,5% of the participants would support a boycott of the referendum, while 47,8% would participate. The other 24% couldn’t decide. Again, there is a difference in the answers of Macedonians and Albanians. 41,9% of the former would participate, compared to 61% of the latter.

Ethnic Macedonians make up 66% of Macedonia’s population, followed by 25% of ethnic Albanians via euscoop

  1. Zoran Zaev is a Soros / Washington regime-change imposition on this little republic: the people know that. And clearly the big issue is not just the name but “are you in support of an EU and NATO memberships?” The majority says no.
    Meanwhile our puppet “Greek” government would not dare ask us such a question.
