Tetovo, 18 February 2018 (MIA) - Afrim Gashi has been elected Sunday for a new leader of the opposition 'BESA' Movement.
At the party's first congress in Tetovo, Gashi scooped 522 votes out of 575 delegates.
From this day on BESA will be a party not only of Albanians, but of all people living in Macedonia, Gashi said.
He notified his priorities as BESA leader: Macedonia's accession to the EU and NATO; better living standards for citizens; justice for all and a party open for redefining of the country.
Today's gathering also elected monitoring and central councils as the party's highest bodies between two congresses.
