At an event Saturday in Skopje, the party’s bodies were elected, and Skender Rexhepi was chosen as the leader of People’s Movement.
“’People’s Movement’ – a good beginning of our political journey, a journey that will enable us to maintain the direction that we began much earlier, but now with a new political concept as part of a people’s movement,” wrote Rexhepi in a post on Facebook.
Rexhepi recently left Alternativa and acted as an independent MP in Parliament, before saying he would form his own party.
“God will not change the state of the people, but the people must do it themselves. We are inspired by the sayings of our ancestors that love for the country is a characteristic of people who want to change society,” said Rexhepi at the event, reports TV 21.
