Another political party will be added to the political arena in FYROM and this party belongs to the Albanian community. Political movement “BESA” will be the new political subject, which, according to its founders, aims at playing an active role as part of the opposition.
Afrim Gashi, one of its founders, said that the new political subject, will be publicly promoted in November and it will be comprised of young people in order to be a new political alternative.
“As a new subject in the Albanian political scene, we don’t only want to be young in age, but also in vision. We understand politics not only as an electoral race, but also as an education for the creation of a new Albanian political thought. Meanwhile, our role as an opposition party will not only be played as a party which criticizes every once and a while”, declared Gashi.
This political subject has sparked debates as a result of the pro Turkish approach and a while ago, there were allegations that this new political party was backed by AK Party of the current Turkish president, Recep Tayip Erdogan. But, BESA’s leaders have rejected these accusations, stressing that these rumors are groundless. /ibna/
