Paradoxically, there is an attempt to bridge the ethnic gap with this model. As a result, the consociational democracy model holds solutions that can be abused if somebody misuses its power and desires to disintegrate the country. The future development depends therefore on the moderate attitude of the citizens, and first and foremost, on the political elites and their commitment to the values of democracy and human rights instead of their nationalistic goals. Furthermore, the

present democratic consolidation in Macedonia is established on the execution of the peace agreement and the improved effectiveness of the institutions. This means that the positive effects of the consociational democracy model can only be obtained if the political engineering is put into practice in an adequate institutional environment that respects the values and principles that are commonly accepted in

a modern political community. (Less)
