Leaders of the Alliance for Albanians and BESA, Zijadin Sela and Bilal Kasami, whose candidate for president, Blerim Reka, won almost 80,000 votes in the first round, say that this result is a message from the Albanians to the Albanian elites of the government.
In all settlements and municipalities with Albanian majority, Professor Reka received the result 3: 1 minimum, there are also populated areas with a result of 4: 1. The same message is transmitted by the low turnout in the municipalities with Albanian majority. The boycott is by definition a boycott of the majority and the government’s majority, and it is not a boycott of the opposition, which is striving to bring about changes, says Sela.
Kasami said that the first round of elections showed that Albanians want changes as, according to him, happened in the Macedonian political campus.
If the prime minister continues to be captured and defend Albanian criminals only to serve them, he should know that they will pull him into the hole in which they have fallen long ago, Kasami said.
They, together with Reka, said they would not bargain with the votes they obtained, leaving the electorate alone to decide how to position itself in the second round.
