Earlier this week, Bajram Begaj, a retired military officer and politician, took oath as the 9th President of Albania.

In his first address in front of the lawmakers as the President, the 55-year-old declared that he will support and respect both the government and opposition’s work, calling for cooperation between political parties instead of conflict.

“I will carry out this mission above the parties. I will not remain neutral towards anyone who puts political interests above the nation’s interest and I will support and insist on the cooperation between all political forces,” Begaj added.

He urged political parties to “get away from the politics of confrontation and replace it with the politics of dialogue”.

“Unity is needed more than ever to ensure the vitality of our nation. Let us all together make our Albania even more beautiful, for it to be in the place where it belongs.”

Begaj was elected President on June 4.
