The Leader of the Opposition (Albanian: Drejtuesi i opozitës or Kreu i opozitës) is a title traditionally held by the leader of the largest party not in government in the Parliament of Albania. The Leader of the Opposition is invariably seen as the alternative Prime Minister of Albania to the present incumbent, and heads a rival alternative government known as the Shadow Cabinet.
