DP celebrates the 33rd anniversary of its foundation in separate ways! Basha fills up the Palace of Congresses, low turnout in Berisha
The Democratic Party celebrated this 33rd anniversary of its foundation in a divided way. The chairman of the official DP, Lulzim Basha, gathered his supporters in the Palace of Congresses on Monday afternoon, while Sali Berisha and his democratic supporters gathered in a hotel in Tirana.
In the ceremony organized by Basha, a more massive participation is observed, while in the one organized by Berisha, a lower participation is observed.
In his speech at the Palace of Congresses, Lulzim Basha said that many democrats have been disappointed by those to whom they have given a lot over the years and who are now wandering the streets fearing justice.
"No one will ever be able to tarnish the historic event of the establishment of the DP. No one and never will be able to erase the sacrifice of its founders. Gratitude for life to the students and founders of PD. The Democratic Party is the party of the free Albanian society. I know that on this anniversary we are not where we wanted to be. I know that in this anniversary we do not have everyone by our side. I know that many of the people who worked and contributed to the party are not here with us. I know that in this anniversary we have been disappointed by many for whom we have only given in these years. I know that on this anniversary, a part of us still walks the streets blinded by personal interest, afraid of the judgment of history, afraid of the hand of justice."
