Struga. The ruling Democratic Party of Albanians /DPA/ is holding a congress in Struga on Saturday to officially appoint party’s deputy /DPA/ chairman Menduh Taci as leader, the Macedonian Utrinski Vesnik newspaper writes.
Taci will be a successor of the outgoing DPA leader Arben Xhaferi, who had already announced his withdrawal.
DPA thinks nobody will oppose Xhaferi and stand for a party chairman. Taci has been considered informal leader even up to now, the edition adds.
According to DPA sources one of Taci’s rivals is Healthcare Minister Imer Selmani, but his power within the party has been fading, as his authorities have been cut.
