Albania’s Greeks Want Political Plums

OmoniaAfter the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, announced his new government in which no minister from the Greek minority participates, the organization Omonoia, a social, political and cultural organization in  Albania that promotes minority rights for the Greek minority in the south of the country, reacted strongly. It denounced that this is the first time after the fall of the Communist regime that there is not a single minister from the Greek Diaspora in the government.

Omonoia, through a press release, reported that this approach reinforces its concerns on  the issue of the Greek national minority and pointed out that the “non-presence of a minister of Greek descent in the new government, although this has been a tactic of every government since 1991, forces us to immediately suggest that the Human Rights Union Party reconsider and reorient its relations with the Socialist Party based on the current developments.”

“This is not about petty political interests, but fundamental issues that are directly related to the delicate position of Greeks in Albania,” Omonoia’s announcement concluded.

  1. It’s a shame. Greeks and Albanians have similar roots and not giving the Greeks roles in the Socialist-Liberal government is a surprise, given the fact that Edi Rama has Greek-Albanian parents from Himara and he has always been pro-Greek. Hopefully Local Elections will give the Greeks more say.

  2. First of all Edi Rama does not have any ‘Greek root’. He is not from Himara and Himara is not Greek either. There are only some Gypsi that have migrated in Himara, that have been used by Grexit propoganda. Chameria and Suli next…..

  3. The “Greek paty” has wone just 15000 votes, regardless the fact that Grexit had invested pension stealing money from EU for pretending that some Orthodox Albanians are Greex…

  4. Can not be brother because Grexit has committed Genocide on the whole Muslim Albanian ethnic population in Chameria. Whereas the Orthodox Chams have been under constant pressures of assimilation and ETHNOCIDE. Now they are under the pressures of dictatorial financial terrorism of REGIME in Athens

  5. They shouldn’t be promoting minority rights they should be promoting INDIGENOUS RIGHTS. But the EU and EHRC refuse to ever label any of the European races as being indigenous.

  6. north Epirus is Greek lands and they say there is 300,000 Greeks in Albania.so why not give them separation to join Greece its their right to do that…..

  7. @disqus_DVGY01VBbx:disqus
    i have always wondered actually, if there are 300000 greeks in southern albania, which would make them something close to 11% of the total population and a majority in the south, why don’t they just go out and protest? do you know why they don’t do that? because this 300000 is fiction

  8. Albanian.and.Arbanitet are brothers anyway…while for Greeks I.have no comments who are they Greek speaking people?!… Greek IS NOT a race everybody knows that…. Arbaniti

  9. Are you having day dreams or what? I’m from the south and i’m orthodox, but i’m Albanian. If they were 300K greeks they will have at least 12% of the vote. So keep ur lies for urself we know the truth ourselfs. Even the 2 that got elected got the vote from PS party.

  10. George Kastriotis (Skanderbeg) is and always will be Greek.. His is half Greek and Serb.. He never spoke Albanian only Greek. Albanians have never originated from Illyria and are no more than just mongoloids from asia.. FREE NORTHERN EPIRUS…

  11. George Kastriotis (Skanderbeg) is and always will be Greek.. His is half Greek and Serb.. He never spoke Albanian only Greek. Albanians have never originated from Illyria and are no more than just mongoloids from asia.. FREE NORTHERN EPIRUS………………….

  12. Justice for the Northern Epirus.. During WW2 (1942-1944) in Northern Epirus, Albanians siding with their good friends the German NAZI, burned over 250 Greek villages and killed over 4500 Greek civilians by armed groups of Albanians. Albanians are all murderers and criminals.. FREE NORTHERN EPIRUS, FREE KOSOVO….

  13. Hey you moron Skenderbeg was a warrior of the “Dervishi Order”.
    Greeks never existed in Chameria. Grexit are conglomerate of Anatolian Turko-sporoi and Ethiopian mongrel scum of the Earth.
    Stay way from brave Albanian race….
