Sali Berisha, a northerner from Tropoje, just five kilometers from the Albanian-Serbian border, enjoys the limitless support of the people in the region, and he employs, in the Democratic party, many northerners.
Berisha’s ambition got in the way of his smarts, and he wasn’t able to capitalize on the chaos his supporters had created in the capitol.
But, Berisha believed he had the nation behind him, and the government on the run, so in exchange for the tanks, he demanded the government step down, and a new government of national reconciliation be set up until elections could be held.

Berisha, however, said that while it is true that there is a "Slav group" in Albania, it is not certain whether their origin is "Bulgarian or Macedonia".
This marks Berisha's evolution from a "well-intended friend" of Macedonia and "peace-maker" in the Balkans into a militant advocate of a Greater-Albania and yet another denier of the Macedonian state and people.
It is by no means an accident that Berisha chose to radicalize in a negative sense relations with Macedonia right now when there is a pending withdrawal of UN troops from Croatia and probably from Bosnia, thus creating the possibility of a spillover of the Bosnian war.

At first there were illusions about the benefits that capitalism would bring, but after the fraudulent election of Sali Berisha in 1992, people quickly changed their minds.
During 1996 the social climate became explosive due to the failure of almost all economic activity, the crisis of education, the failure to pay pensions, mass unemployment, the lack of goods of prime necessity and the fall in living standards generally.
