SKOPJE - Macedonia's conservative ruling party, the VMRO-DPMNE, claimed victory in Sunday's early parliamentary elections but will probably have to seek coalition partners to form a stable government.

"This press conference is dedicated to announcing the victory of VMRO-DPMNE. Nikola Gruevski remains the prime minister of Macedonia," Zlatko Gorcev, a member of the party's executive committee, told reporters.

"From tomorrow we continue with our obligation to help the citizens," Gruevski said.

The party's main tasks will be to revive the economy, fight unemployment and poverty, and speed up the Balkan country's drive to join the European Union and NATO.
