Address of the President Xhaferi on the Occasion of the International Day of Democracy
The thoughts for democracy as form of governance and form of state order can be found in the ancient times of Aristotle, Socrates and Plato. Essentially, since ancient times, democracy and everything in the context thereof, was a subject of theoretical debates of political definitions. Since today, majority of us here, are people from the politics, I shall quote one of those political definitions “Democracy is the worst form of governance, except for all the others”.
