Konstantinos Skenderis (Greek: Κωνσταντίνος Σκενδέρης) was a Greek journalist and author. He was born in Korça, modern southeast Albania, when the city was under Ottoman rule.[1] From 1910 he published the newspaper named O Pelasgos (Greek: Ο Πελασγός The Pelasgian)

When his homeland came under Greek administration (Oct. 1914 – Sept. 1916), Skenderis got elected as member of the Greek Parliament for the Korytsa Prefecture in the following elections (December 1915).[1][2] From 1916 he lived in Athens where he continued to publish his newspaper until 1940.[3][4]
