    [03] DP BRANCH FOR TIRANA HOLDS EMERGENCY MEETING

    TIRANA, FEB 27 (ATA)- By A. Frasheri, The Democratic Party branch for Tirana held an emergency meeting yesterday afternoon and stressed that the acts of the extreme left opposition were politically motivated. It categorically expressed itself against coalition with the Socialist Party.

    "This is not a fight to return the money, but to return to power those who have lost the people's vote several times over the last years," DP chairman Tritan Shehu said.

    Shehu analysed the situation created and the left opposition acts. He said that "the extreme left continues revanche to hinder the democratic developments in Albania and is trying to violate democracy, institutions, the future, youth".

    The democrat leader once again rejected coalition with the Socialist Party. He said that "coalition with the SP is unacceptable and means to destroy the Albanian democracy".

    He spoke of the protests in Vlore and the strike staged by the "Ismail Qemali" university students in this city. He said that they should not be manipulated for political aims.

    "The youth should not be used as a cannon fodder for careerist interests of those who lost the 50 year old power".

    Shehu called on the Vlore inhabitants and students to dialogue to find the best ways to resolve the problems.

    The chairman of the Tirana DP branch, Albert Brojka, said that "One should have the courage and be patient to speak with the electorate, which the opposition did not have and did not undertake".

    While the secretary of the DP branch for Tirana, Shaban Memia, said:"If we allow the left extremists to close down institutions, schools and academies to resolve different problems, then it will be a dangerous precedent of great historic responsibility." pas/lm

    [13] PRESIDENT SALI BERISHA APPOINTED DP NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR A SECOND PRESIDENTIAL TERM

    TIRANA, FEB 27 (ATA) - By Atlant Frasheri: The Democratic Party National Council, in his today's meeting named President Sali Berisha as candidate for a fresh presidential term.

    After a secret voting, 85 of the 90 member DP National Council voted for Berisha as candidate, none against and 5 abstentions.

    "In the discussions made, it resulted that President Berisha is the most renowned man who has been capable and is capable to further develop democracy, economy, institutions in Albania and Albania's integration in the European and Euroatlantic structures," said DP chairman Tritan Shehu after the meeting of the National Council.

    The candidate for the fresh presidential term was named through secret voting although according to the rule the voting might have been open, according to normal procedure, but there were opinions, among them also that of Berisha's, to vote secretly.

    In reply to a reporter's question for a second candidacy from DP or other parties, Shehu said that "the election in 1992 was made with one candidacy. It is not a condition to present another candidacy. According to Albanian law, one candidate is enough, he is voted and if he receives the set number of votes, he is the winner."

    Nine of 14 signers of a petition (five of them are not members of the National Council) took part in the voting. Through the petition, they demanded a government of public salvation with the participation of left wing forces, which was criticized by Berisha and DP as well.

    Out of the nine members mentioned above, four had voted in favour of the candidate proposed by the party presidency, as they declared, whereas five others had abstained.

    "Regarding President's role, we have a petition and our opinion is that the role of the president must be reduced and other institutions be more independent and separated," said Dashamir Shehi, one of the group who prepared the petition, who abstained in the voting.

    This viewpoint of the group was presented in the discussion of deputy Leka Toto.

    Albanian 140 seat Parliament, with 122 seats for DP, will discuss today afternoon the date of the session in which the President will be elected.

    Prof Dr Sali Berisha, 52, was elected head of Albanian state on April 9, 1992 by the Parliament and his term ends on March 9, 1997. According to the constitutional package, the President may be elected for two consecutive five-year terms. kled/xh/sh/
