The LDK is facing a very important decision on March 14 and I am confident that the LDK delegates will choose the right path to move forward. These elections are not to deny the past of the LDK, they are not to change the past of the LDK and they are not to deny the contribution of anyone within the LDK.

I wish that everyone in the name of the love they have for the LDK, for these 30 years for the LDK, to reflect and enable what is today the feeling and request of the absolute majority of the LDK electorate to be translated in the ballot box on March 14, otherwise it will be extremely problematic for the LDK. I do not want to believe that there are clans, because those clans have brought the LDK here, in fact we should open a discussion within the LDK to bring the system ‘one member, one vote’ after the new chairman is elected in in the next two years we should discuss to have ‘one member, one vote’ so that the LDK returns to the voters, the citizen and every member of the LDK has his own share in the election of the LDK chairman even at the central level but “even at the branch level”, he declared.

It has been wrong in the past what has happened, I have been against those actions personally as an individual, and now as branch president, I will again oppose the denial of anyone and then it will be the secret ballot that will determine who will be the new chairman of the LDK “, said Tahiri.
