    [13] FRESH IS NOT A MARIONETTE FOR SOME TO COVER UP THEIR PAST - FRESH chairman

    TIRANA, NOV. 4 (ATA) - By Agim Baci: The latest attacks against Ilir Meta, chairman of the Eurosocialist Youth Forum of Albania (FRESH) by a group of this Forum, are for Meta nothing but a scenario of some marionettes which try to create problems in order to attack him and all those who have requested the resignation of the SP Presidency.

    A declaration by the group of 41 FRESH members said that "Meta takes decisions privately, and, since the time he has been placed in the FRESH leadership, the Forum has taken a suspicious direction," and it asked Meta's withdrawal as the FRESH chairman.

    SP leaders have considered these ideas as internal problems of this organization which they themselves may solve.

    "There are no problems, but there some people who try to create problems. I am convinced that FRESH cannot become a marionette for some to cover up their past," said Meta.

    The contradictions in the fold of the Youth Forum of SP are a consequence of the disarray created in this party after its great loss in the October 20 local vote, which Meta considered as "a catastrophe for SP" and accused the new SP presidency elected by chairman Fatos Nano. kei/xh/k
