The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj has stated that the decision of the Government is expected soon, which will pave the way for the construction of the new national theater. During an interview for News 24, Veliaj said that the same will be done with the schools, which are built by the Municipality of Tirana, but are then administered by the Ministry of Education, while in the case of the Theater will be the Ministry of Culture.
"We will soon have a decision of the Council of Ministers to operate for the construction of the theater. As the Municipality of Tirana does for every school with the Ministry of Education, we will do something similar with the Ministry of Culture. The municipality builds, because it has a specialty in the physical construction of the premises, while the Ministry has the content, theatrical performances, ” said Veliaj.
He confirmed that the construction of the Theater will start within a few months. "It will take as long as the competition procedure lasts, but within this year definitely," said the mayor.
