Zaev’s Albanian coalition partners, despite SDS’ alleged guarantees to keep the unitary character of the country intact. appear to have a different set of ideas.
Just an hour after Zaev received the mandate from Ivanov, BESA’s Bilal Kasami in an interview for TV21 says the Tirana platform must be implemented, which means the country must be redefined.
Kasami says at no point did Zaev ask his party to refrain from their demand to implement the Tirana platform.
At today’s meeting between Zaev and Kasami, there wasn’t a discussion whether BESA will take part in the new Government. For Kasami, his party’s conditions to take part in the Government are explicitly stated in the Tirana platform.
Zaev will first meet with DUI, then BESA and lastly with the Ziadian Sela’s AA.
