The leader of BDI (Democratic Union for Integration), Ali Ahmeti declared today (21.02) that the party that he leads is looking into the possibility of early parliamentary elections.

Ahmeti has highlighted this following the meeting that he had with the ambassador of Slovakia in Skopje, Martin Bezak.

“As far as the eventual parliamentary elections are concerned, all structures of BDI are committed to analyze all possible circumstances of holding them. We will also analyze the the impact that these elections will have in the process for the solution of the name dispute with Greece”, said Ahmeti.

Ahmeti outlined that the in the upcoming months there will be elections in the European countries to elect the new members of the European Parliament, but there will also be local government elections in Greece.

As far as the holding of presidential elections on April 13 are concerned, Ahmeti said that BDI continues to insist on the idea for a consensual nominee.

“We continue to stick to our proposal for a consensual president, as he will be a personality with legitimacy throughout the majority of the community and he must contribute for the stability of the country, reconciliation and cross-ethnic relations”, declared the head of BDI.

Ahmeti underlined that the meeting with the Slovak diplomat focused on the Euro Atlantic process of the country and the reforms undertaken so far. /ibna/
