The largest Albanian opposition party PDSH (Albanian Democratic Party) doesn’t rule out the possibility of completely boycotting parliament.

This was declared last night by the leader of this party, Menduh Thaci, after the meeting of the party’s steering committee, which discussed the decision for the boycott, after the incident taken place between MPs of this party and those of the other Albanian party, BDI (Democratic Union for Integration), which resulted in a physical clash.

“I’m sure that the incident is a scenario orchestrated by Ali Ahmeti and his party as a way to shut the opposition up. The incident followed the insults that were initiated by BDI lawmakers. PDSH will not participate in parliament’s proceedings for an undetermined period and we’re very close to coming up with a decision of indefinitely boycotting parliament”, said Thaci.

PDSH is the only opposition party in parliament, after the boycott of the Macedonian opposition, that doesn’t recognize the recent elections.

In case this party withdraws too, then the country will remain without a parliamentary opposition.

PDSH has also appointed a team which will organize the elections within the party. /ibna/
