Democratic Party leaders and relatives commemorated the “December leader” Azem Hajdari on the 20thanniversary of assassination.
President Ilir Meta said Azem Hajdari is a figure of epochal dimensions that has given a lifelong message to all Albanians, that democracy requires courage.
While the historic leader of the Democratic Party, Sali Berisha, if we go back to “his December” we will find a genius of human courage, but also of vision. It was the tribunal in the national affair.
For the opposition’s leader, Lulzim Basha, Azem Hajdari’s dream faces an obstacle that the leader of the Democrats pledged to make a reality for all Albanians.
Lulzim Basha: Let’s pledge to Azem that we will cleanse up crime policy to open for the country the blocked way towards freedom and democracy, your dream leads us to the battle for the victory of good against the evil.
Azem Hajdari was one of the main student leaders of December that brought the fall of the communist dictatorship that had ruled Albania with ‘iron fist’ for 45 years. He was killed at the age of 35 (September 12, 1998) in front of the Democratic Party’s headquarters, along with his bodyguard./tvklan.al
