Today  the Albanian Parliamentarianism will turn a century old. In the town of Lushnja where the historic convention that sanctioned this act was held, a series of activities have been planned to celebrate this important event of national history.

The festive atmosphere has embraced the city of Lushnja, while the beauties are present in the main streets. January 21st is undoubtedly the most important day in the history of the city. The purpose of holding the Lushnja Congress was to restore the Albanian state and secure its independence.

“The Lushnja Congress met in a situation when the existence of the Albanian state was put into question. A group of patriots gathered here in this city, which at that time did not exceed 2,000 inhabitants, managed with great sacrifice to organize this grand event, whose decisions are still felt today,” said Museum Director Niko Ferro.

For this 100th anniversary the Museum House has added other elements.

“Documents have been placed. We also store in our archive the original stamp and fountain pen. The original, recently restored flag will also be placed for the first time. Documents obtained from the state archive will also be posted,” said Mr. Ferrro.

For 7 years, from 1922 to 1939, January 21st was a national holiday, and even today, Lushnja people demand that this day be returned as a national holiday.

“January 21st deserves to be a national holiday. It is a holiday that unites Albanians and does not create divisions. I wish politicians would vote for this holiday and invite them to come and see why this convention is important,” said among others the Museum Director Niko Ferro.
