Former PM urges Albanians to embrace civil disobedience

“Democrats, civil disobedience is our oath”.

This was declared today by former PM, Sali Berisha during his speech at the Democratic Party’s National Assembly.

Berisha said Albania has always produced heroes in difficult times. He added that the only thing that can be done in the current situation is civil disobedience.

According to him, it’s been a decade now that the nation has lost all hope, the right to vote freely and one third of its people. Berisha said that the rule of law was replaced by the “narco-state”.

In his speech the former PM said the country today is experiencing a new dictatorship, where all the powers are in the hands of one man.

The Democratic Party is holding its National Assembly today, during which there will also be a vote of confidence for the party leader.

Participants will also discuss issues concerning the latest developments within the main opposition party and the situation in the country.

The assembly is held at a time when the main opposition party is divided in two groups. One of the groups supports former PM, Sali Berisha and the other supports Lulzim Basha.

The divisions started when in May 2021, the US Department of State declared the former PM persona non-grata for significant corruption and for undermining democracy. The same decision was also taken by UK authorities.
