Flag of VMRO-NP - Image by Stoyan Antonov, 9 April 2005
VMRO-NP (Vnatresšna makedonska revolucionerna organizacija - Narodna partija, Inner Macedonian Revolutionary Organization - People's Party) was founded in July 2004 following internal quarrel inside VMRO-DPMNE. This explains the similarity in the name and the emblems of the two parties.
Quoting Ulrich Buechsenschuetz, "New Conservative Party Founded In Macedonia", Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty, 9 July 2004:
Followers of former Prime Minister Ljubco Georgievski founded a new party in Skopje on 4 July. It has yet to be registered with a Skopje court but will be called Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-People's Party (VMRO-Narodna or VMRO-NP). Vesna Janevska, a medical doctor and close ally of Georgievski, was elected as the party's first chairwoman.
The new party was reportedly founded as an attempt to replace incumbent Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE) Chairman Nikola Gruevski with Georgievski, his predecessor.
In some respects, the move came as a surprise. In recent weeks, reports had indicated that the ongoing leadership struggle between Georgievski and Gruevski had been resolved, at least for the time being (see RFE/RL Balkan Report, 4 June 2004). Georgievski, who leads the more radical, nationalist wing of the VMRO-DPMNE, seemed to have stopped his attacks on Gruevski, who heads the party's moderate wing.
As a result of Gruevski's refusal to call a party congress, his opponents decided to found the new party, the VMRO-NP. According to the Macedonian dailies, their plan was to defeat the VMRO-DPMNE in the fall local elections, thus forcing Gruevski to resign. Then, the VMRO-NP members could rejoin the VMRO-DPMNE, with Georgievski as its old-new leader.
Gruevski said some of his former allies have changed drastically, "as if the devil had taken hold of them."
The newly founded VMRO-NP adopted a party program that closely resembles that of the VMRO-DPMNE. The VMRO-NP's statute also allows dual membership in both parties.
