The Mayor of BlagoevgradIlkoStojanov told the Bulgarian newspaper “24 Chasa” that he neither issued a permit nor prohibited the opening of a private Macedonian cultural club. He claims that if someone speculated about his name and the mayoral institution, it was a lie.
As reported by MIA, this event, according to Stojanov, had nothing to do with the municipality and has nothing to do with him.
A group of people rented a room from a private person and decided to make a club. The municipality of Blagoevgrad will not make this private event official, commented Stojanov, and added that he received an invitation for its opening, but he had no intention to attend.
