Tirana, April 4, 2013
Fatos Nano, founder and long-time leader of Albania’s Socialist Party who also served three mandates as Prime Minister, declared he does not intend to go back to the political life.
In a televised interview, Nano spoke for the first time of a final departure from politics:
“I won’t go back to partisan politics; I won’t! I don’t want to play again a decisive and relevant role…on one side only. I am committed to fighting against the stubborn blocking of the rejuvenation of political elites and to promoting co-existence of political generations in politics as well as in governance.”
Further, Mr. Nano stated: “I will continue to be extremely active in non-partisan initiatives, as a peacemaker, as a promoter of Euro-Atlantic values and as a protector of modern standards which have proved fruitful in our societies.” /ibna/
