VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski called out the Mayor of Kicevo Fatmir Dehari for his refusal to uphold the law and remove the Albanian flag from the city – now that the share of Albanian residents there dropped below 50 percent. Mickoski said that Dehari, a former UCK terrorist commander, is engaged in nationalist posturing, while the city is depopulating.

Is the Mayor now a big hero with the fact that he lost the right to wave the Albanian flag? Go to Zajas, Oslomej, Vranestica and Drugovo, they are all emptying out. Who is the flag waving for if all the children are in Zurich, Berlin or Venice?, Mickoski said during an interview with the Albanian language Alsat TV.
