The Alliance for Albanians welcomes the unanimous decision of DUI to present its own candidate in the upcoming presidential election and at the same time encourages the party to accept the challenge for parliamentary elections.

“We wish DUI’s presidential candidate to be an Albanian. We would not like to believe that this decision came as a consequence of the closed door and contempt for DUI regarding their false idea of a consensual candidate, today with SDSM, yesterday with VMRO-DPMNE. We hope that DUI’s decision is a response to the challenge of the leader of the Alliance for Albanians, Zijadin Sela, for facing DUI. Since DUI has accepted this challenge, we encourage them to accept the other, ie. calling for early parliamentary elections along with the presidential,” the Alliance for Albanians said in a statement.
