DUI Freezes Merko’s Party Membership

DUI Spokesperson Bujar Osmani revealed at a press conference that the party reached
three decisions in relation to the decision of the US Department of State to blacklist
Struga Mayor and their member Ramiz Merko. “The membership of Merko in DUI is
officially frozen, the party ceases support to all electoral activities in Struga, and we also
call upon the judicial institution to take all necessary measures in order to resolve this
case. Depending on the investigation and its results, we shall make further decisions
whether Merko will remain in the management structures of the party. The US are the
greatest international partners of our country, and in DUI we respect their actions,
which we know are made with the best intent. DUI also have clear positions in the fight
against corruption, and we intend to stick to them completely,” Osmani said.
