PDP announces merger with DPA

The Party of Democratic Prosperity (PDP) announced today in Tetovo merger with the Democratic Party of Albanians (DPA), Makfax's correspondent reported.

The news was made public by the parties' leaders Adbuljadi Vejseli and Menduh Thaci, pointing out that "the oldest political subject in the country is consigned to history."

The initiative came after the two parties concluded that they would garner more seats in the new parliament if they joined forces.

"Today, we set out a new initiative for unification of the two political parties - PDP and DPA. It will happen very soon, perhaps within days, therefore, DPA and its leader Menduh Thaci are welcome to use our votes," Vejseli said.

"We have a joint initiative for merging of these two parties. I believe the parties' bodies would make positive decisions. Everything is clear," Menduh Thaci added at a joint press conference.

PDP was formed in 1990 as the first party of the Albanians in Macedonia. In February 1994, Arben Xhaferi's faction broke off to give birth to the Party of Democratic Prosperity of Albanians. The new political subject was registered in 1995, to change its name into Democratic Party of Albanians in 1997.
