The State Electoral Commission confirmed that SDSM candidate Konstantin Georgievski won the mayoral race in Ohrid. The race was held along with the presidential elections, after Mayor Jovan Stojanoski, elected in 2017, died in office.
Georgievski won 16.523 votes, as opposed to 12.668 who voted for Mitre Milosevski from VMRO-DPMNE.
The doctor was recently involved in allegations that he is preparing to use his position to zone a large plot of land he owns in the village of Konjsko for lucrative commercial development. As Mayor he will face the issue of whether to approve the construction of a mosque minaret towering over the old city, and also whether to allow his main ethnic Albanian political ally in the city Nefi Useini to complete several buildings he is constructing without permit.
