Meta says Albania's future hinges on divorce decision (Spoiler: It probably

Tirana, June 21, 2024 - At a news conference on Friday, the head of the Freedom Party, Ilir Meta explained the reasons of the divorce to Monika Kryemadhi, which he had publicly announced on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences related to their political stances. Speaking from his party's headquarters, Meta emphasized that the decision was not abrupt but driven by significant issues critical to Albania's future.

Meta explained that their marital strain stemmed from Kryemadhi's consistent opposition to his political agenda, notably her decision to order party MPs to relinquish their seats, a move he described as undermining their partnership. He stressed that the divorce, though personally difficult, was necessary to eliminate ongoing public confusion and stress caused by their conflicting views.

In a heartfelt apology to his children and their grandparents, Meta expressed hope for their understanding, emphasizing that his decision was not about replacing Kryemadhi but about remaining true to the causes he champions.

The couple's separation marks the end of a long-standing partnership that began with their marriage on October 29, 1998, and produced three children: Bora, Besar, and Era Metaj. Despite their political differences, both have remained significant figures in Albanian politics, with Kryemadhi prioritizing family values over her political career in recent public statements.

Meta, a former President of Albania, has been a central figure in opposition politics, leading the Freedom Party through challenging times in Albania's political landscape. Kryemadhi, known for her advocacy for personal and political integrity, has often championed transparency within government institutions.
