New Spirit Party
|Founded||5 November 2010|
|Dissolved||31 March 2011|
Partia Fryma e Re (FER; English: New Spirit Party) was a political party in Kosovo. It was founded and registered with the Central Elections Committee in October 2010 by Harvard University graduate Shpend Ahmeti, Ilir Deda, Director of the Kosovo Institute for Policy Research and Development (KIPRED) and others, and supports Kosovo in becoming a new generation political state. "We do not distinguish citizens based on where they come from... they are individuals and everyone will be represented without distinction," stated Deda. FER participated in the next general elections in Kosovo on 12 December 2010, and enjoyed great popularity.
Although getting huge media Facebook and YouTube hype, it fared badly in the 2010 election, receiving 2% of the vote and not passing the 5% threshold which would allow them into parliament.
