Partit Demokratiku and Alternattiva Demokratika today have formally arrived at an agreement to merge the two parties into one.

This is the culmination of months of discussions and joint political action between the two parties, a joint statement said.

Amidst a national climate of division and fragmentation, both AD and PD fully recognise the country’s need for concerted political action which finds common ground for the good of the entire country rather than polarisation for factional and partisan ends.

The party is to be named AD/PD.

The next few weeks will see both parties function as a united Executive via a transition team.

The parties aim to finalise the process and merge into a single legal entity in the coming weeks, upon which a new Executive will be nominated at the first AGM of the merged party which is currently scheduled to be held by no later than September 2020.
