* Mihail Mladenovski, former president of the youth organization of SDSM, refuted the accusations of being a servant of the government and said his former party's motto "you are either SDSM or nothing at all" was a classical fascist slogan that set people against the one another and proved how closed the leadership of SDSM was. This motto, according to Mladenovski, is accepted only by certain members of the party. Identical accusations were leveled at Viktor Cvetkovski, too, who will be running for mayor of Kumanovo as an independent candidate. Cvetkovski was excluded from SDSM in July. Esad Rahic, former president of the Skopje branch of SDSM, expelled from the party in 2007, announced formation of a new party too.
