A survey conducted in North Macedonia revealed that the constitutional amendment related to Bulgaria’s claims was not supported by ethnic Macedonian citizens, but was supported by ethnic Albanian citizens.
A poll conducted by the Skopje Institute for Political Studies for the Detektor Show on Seatel TV showed that 56 percent of citizens oppose the constitutional changes that Bulgaria demands. The percentage of those who support the change is 27.5%.
It found that 80 percent of Albanians surveyed supported the changes, while 72.4 percent of ethnic Macedonians opposed the changes.
Ethnic Macedonian citizens continued to oppose the Bulgarian demands, even when the question envisaged that some assurances would be given to Macedonia regarding its integration into the European Union.
Bulgaria wants North Macedonia to include the Bulgarian minority in its constitution.
The poll was conducted on 1112 citizens between May 2-6.
