[quote=Droog;97325]1)There aren't any deputies that speak your language in the Albanian parliament, because you're too few to have one of your representatives elected.

2)Nobody was killed in Albania to get bilingual street signs, because unlike in Macedonia we really don't think that it's such a huge problem.

3) a)No language is foreign to its native speakers b)Let me reply to that with a question: was it worth killing and dying to not allow the largest minority have its own street signs? I don't think so.[/quote]

The song has been sung already in Kosovo. The Kosovars had bilingual signs during YU and they had their University and even bilingual administration, and yet they complained of not having any basic human rights. Only the result of that explains why they complained.

The bilingual politic is only the way of preparing territorial separation, which obviously all Albanians support.

Such politics won't be allowed in any other country such as US, Germany or any other western country.

[QUOTE=ennea;97330]The largest minority parties were the ones of Muslims of Thrace. They went independent (under the names Destiny and Trust) for a brief period in early 90s, taking in consequtive elections a total of about 0,7%. Rainbow Party takes about 0,1%.
Muslims usually elect 2 (rarely 3) MPs with the major parties.[/QUOTE]We are talking about ethnicity here, not religions. I am comparing the ROM situation and its neighbors. So stop replying just for the sake of having the last say. Ethnic Macedonians are by far the largest minorities no matter how many wiki articles or Greek government stats you produce. Infact, Macedonians would be larger than Greeks if not for those Albanians and Turks thinking they are Greeks.

[QUOTE=Bill77;97329]Well mabe they should form part of a ruling coalition since Droog is suggesting the largest minority is a criteria to have equal power equal rights.
[/QUOTE]
Well, none of the large parties is in need of the 1 deputy of the Greek party who represents 0,71% of the parliament. In the Macedonian parliament on the other hand Albanian deputies are 29(24%), so of course any of the two parties that wants to take control has to ally itself with an Albanian party.

You are either very ignorant or you here to spread cheap Shiptar propaganda, IMHO! The fact IS that the Ghegs (DUI) threatened WAR when there was a prospect of leaving them out of the Government in 2006 and there is no legitimate legal obligation to include Gheg parties in any government whatsoever, even in the FA! Go and do some research on the topic and then try to speak about it! I despise liars and cheap underhand propagandists, especially anti-Macedonian ones posting on a Macedonian forum!!!

Instead of responding with the too-common outburst you should check the stats before jumping to conclusions. Gruevski's coalition had 63 seats(Gruevski's party by itself didn't have more than 60), so of course he was obliged to ally himself with one of the Albanian parties. A majority of 63 is too unstable even if they are all controlled by one party, not to mention how much more unstable such a majority becomes when those 63 seats are divided among small parties like the union of Roma

The elections results are not Government statistics or Wiki articles. I'm talking about REAL minorities and REAL data, yours are imaginative and baseless. Muslims of Thrace self-determine as Turks and are Turk-speaking. Their efforts in early 90s and their consistent stance until today, allows us to consider them a size of about 0,7% (max 1%).
Pomaks (sort of Bulgarian Muslims) seem to be officially part of the religious minority, but not the ethnic one. Apparently many Pomaks vote for the Rainbow Party. In Eastern Macedonia (Kavala and Drama Prefects) Rainbow Party has 0,04 and 0,06%. In Pomak areas (Xanthi and Rodopi Prefects of Thrace) it takes 0,16% and 0,21%.

[QUOTE=ennea;97355]The elections results are not Government statistics or Wiki articles. [/QUOTE]Malaka, regarding Greeks being the largest ethnic minority in Albania you gave me a wiki link as proof. You knew what i was refering to so Stop being Greek by twisting things.


[QUOTE=ennea;97355]I'm talking about REAL minorities [/QUOTE] so what are the Macedonians? aren't they a real minority? or are you denying they exist.

[QUOTE=ennea;97355]and REAL data, yours are imaginative and baseless. [/QUOTE] yeh real data, from a country that has data showing Greece has 99% Greeks......wankers.

[QUOTE=ennea;97355] Muslims of Thrace self-determine as Turks and are Turk-speaking. [/QUOTE] Well don't deny them and call them Turks from the beginning. The same way we call our Minority Ethnic Albanians. Wake up we are not in the 18th century anymore where people in the Balkans were documented under their religious affiliation. It seem Greece is the only country that does this. Fucken cave men.

There are no non-coalition Macedonian parliamentary parties except for a very small one with just one deputy Bill, and that simply means that the party that gets the largest percentage of votes in Macedonia whether that party is VMRO or SDSM has to ally itself with an Albanian one. Resuming: No agreement or anti-Macedonian conspiracy forces any of the two large parties to ally with one of the two main Albanian parties but that alliance is basically a natural status of affairs related to the demographic reality of the country. :detective:

From CIA Factbook
[COLOR="Navy"]Ethnic groups (in Albania):
Albanian 95%, Greek 3%, other 2% (Vlach, Roma (Gypsy), Serb, Macedonian, Bulgarian) (1989 est.)
note: in 1989, other estimates of the Greek population ranged from 1% (official Albanian statistics) to 12% (from a Greek organization) [/COLOR]
This is consistent with election results for the Greek Minority Party:
2001: 35,000 votes 2,6% 3 seats
2005: 56,000 votes 4,1% 2 seats
2009: 18,000 votes 1,2% 1 seat (part of a coalition)
Maybe some Albanian user can assure this is accurate and also explain the fluctuations
[QUOTE=Bill77;97358] so what are the Macedonians? aren't they a real minority? or are you denying they exist. [/QUOTE]

The ones that are No 1 minority (i.e. more than 2-3% in Albania and more than 0,6-0,7% in Greece) are a wishful thinking or a product of your imagination.

[QUOTE=Bill77;97358] Well don't deny them and call them Turks from the beginning. Wake up we are not in the 18th century anymore where people in the Balkans were documented under their religious affiliation. It seem Greece is the only country that does this. Fucken cave men.[/QUOTE]
We can't do that. Their treatment and privileges are based on the Treaty of Lausanne. It's not 18th century, but it's... 1923 (a little dated).
