The Polarization of the Political System in Albania and the Problems it has Caused

Adelina Nexhipi


The Albanian transition, apart from the others, was passing from a party-state to a party pluralism. In Albania there are 123 political parties. Although the Albanian political life is dominate by the two biggest parties, the Socialist Party and the Democratic Party. The political debate among these two parties is characterized by high tones arrogance and from the total lack of democratic culture. There has been no readiness between them to do compromises, no desire to cooperate and no will to put the national interests over the partial ones. In this qualifying study I am going to describe an analytical panorama of essential political polarity in Albania, during the transition years based on the documents of the international institutions; Commission European, Council of Europe, OSCE-ODIHR and publications of foreign and Albanian authors. What are the peak moments of the political polarization in Albania? What kind of problems has this feature created for Albania? These are some of the question I am going to answer in this paper. From the made research it is arrived in the conclusion that the political polarity in Albania has created dislike and distrust in the people, prevented the progress of the country, the work of parliament and the European integrity of Albania.
