Is Macedonia next to withdraw?

After another year of missing the final in Eurovision, Macedonia’s future in the contest is being left up to the public. In a poll on the MRT website, visitors are able to vote in a poll that will determine how and if the 2015 participant will be chosen.
The three questions:
- Македонскиот претставник треба да биде победникот на Скопскиот фестивал. (Macedonia needs to select from the winner of the Skopje Festival.)
- Македонскиот претставник треба да се избере по пат на интерна селекција во МРТ. (Macedonia needs to choose by internal selection by MRT.)
- Македонија не треба воопшто да учествува на Евровизија. (Macedonia doesn’t need to participate in Eurovision.)
Unfortunately, the results continue to indicate that the public wants Macedonia to withdraw from the contest. Currently, the results indicate 3163 votes for withdrawal, while only 2086 for Skopje fest, and 666 for internal selection.
The last time that Macedonia qualified for the final was with Kaliopi in 2012.
