Today, the historic leader of the Democratic Party and PM of Albania, finally admitted defeat in these general parliamentary elections 2013 and at the same time resigned his post as head of the party choosing to return to being a normal citizen with limited responsibilities.
Wow, that was a first. It seemed that this guy would never give up till death parted him. In the past he has pulled a lot of tricks to stay in power and thus continue his autocratic rule of the DP and of the Albanian people.
Let’s hope that this was final!
