Skopje, May 6, 2013, by Naser Pajaziti-The new mayor of “Qendër” Skopje, Andrej Zhernovski declared that the monuments of the Albanian heroes will be placed in the framework of the project “Skopje 2014”.
“We’ll see how things go, I don’t want to speculate. I don’t see monuments as characters belonging to the history of FYRO Macedonia, Albanian, Turkish, Rome and so forth. What’s important for me is the procedure followed, the way something is done and the cost”, said Zhernovski.
According to him, VMRO-DPMNE and the last mayor of this commune, Vladimir Todorovic has provoked by postponing the placement of the monuments of the Albanian historical personalities in the central part of Skopje. “Skopje 2014” project has started to be implemented since 2008 with the placement of tens of monuments and the construction of several cultural buildings in the central part of Skopje. Thus, it has been decided that only five monuments of Albanian historical personalities will be placed. The project has a cost of 207 million Euros, while the Macedonian and Albanian opposition were against this government project. /ibna/
