Albania: Thousands join opposition protest over price hikes


TIRANA, Albania (AP) — Thousands of Albanian opposition supporters have held a peaceful protest in the capital Tirana, urging the center-left government to resign because of the cost-of-living crisis and alleged corruption. Albania has seen a hike in the prices of basic food products and fuel linked to the war in Ukraine and the lasting impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Thursday’s protest was organized by the main opposition center-right Democratic Party and attended by its leader Sali Berisha, a 77-year-old former president and prime minister. Berisha has pledged to bring the party back to power after it lost the last three parliamentary elections.
