I agree with the expression of Mr. Oketa, when he says that our alliance is the alliance with the citizens ", added Topi.
The FRD Party was founded the 30 Aprile 2012 by a group of former members of the Democratic Party, including Bamir Topi, the then President of the Republic and at the same time number two of the Democratic Party. Following the many controversies disputed between Prime Minister Berisha and President of the Republic Bamir Topi, a new split begins within the Democratic Party (in the 2000 Genc Pollo, he left the Democratic Party to found The New Democratic Party). The climate of tension that was created among the highest offices in the state will soon be reflected also in the Democratic Party. Thus began the birth of the new party of Bamir Topi, a center-right party, incarnation of the Liberal Ideals. The most important members of the founding group are Gazmend Oketa (President), Aleksander Biberaj and Andi Seferi.
