Hristijan Mickoski (Macedonian: Христијан Мицкоски) is a politician from North Macedonia.


Mickoski was born on September 29, 1977 in Skopje, then in SFR Yugoslavia.[1] He was the president of ELEM, the state-owned electricity producing company. He became a PhD and an associate professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje.[2][3]

Party leader[edit]

After the resignation of Nikola Gruevski Mickoski became the new leader of the VMRO-DPMNE party in December 2017,[4] and thus leader of the opposition in the country. In November 2019, Mickoski has been criticized by the Deputy Foreign Minister Andrej Žernovski. According to Žernovski, Mickoski has insisted that if he becomes a prime minister, the friendship agreements with the neighboring Greece and Bulgaria, signed by SDSM's government, would be denounced.[5] In practice Mickoski obstructs the country's membership in NATO and the EU.[6]
