Meaningless triple-header question with no options? They are likely to lose this one (and a relative majority is surely a loss). On purpose? Why?

(Stark contrast with the Greek question, which 80% answered correctly... and were immediately betrayed...)

For his part, former Macedonian foreign minister Denko Maleski said that he supports the referendum, having told Sputnik Serbia that the vote was a "good chance" to break a "vicious circle along which we have been moving along for 3000 years, without finding a compromise with Greece."
