Zaev: Ohrid Mosque is illegal, lets discuss after May 5th


The mosque in Ohrid, which has been built for several years, despite the indications that it does not have the necessary permits and that it is practically illegal, will be officially opened today.

It is located in the downtown area and does not have a building permit, and moreover it is a cultural monument. Outgoing SDS leader Zaev admits that it does not have the necessary documents but that no measures will be taken because he said the pre-election period was sensitive and all votes matter.

It is true that there is a conservation solution for conservation and restoration, as it is true that there is no building permit. We have decided, it is a sensitive period, elections are coming, Ohrid is an example of inter-religious understanding. We decided after May 5 to sit down and find a solution. Laws should be respected, explained outgoing PM Zaev.
