Socialist Movement for Integration
The Socialists vowed to bring down Meta the moment they secured victory in a parliamentary election on April 25, without even waiting for the new MPs to take their seats in September.
They accuse Meta, a former Socialist prime minister who quit the party 17 years ago, of inciting violence and fomenting political instability with his statements before and during the election.
Albania's parliament on Friday voted to set up a commission to examine the possible ousting of the country's President, Ilir Meta.
It came after a.group of ruling Socialist deputies requested his dismissal, accusing him of interfering in the April 25 legislative elections in violation of the constitution.

The move has been applauded by the country's US and European partners, and offers a potential boost to the country's chances to open membership negotiations with European Union.
Thousands of Albanians went to the streets on Saturday to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Edi Rama.
Demonstrators clashed with the police as they tried to enter the prime minister's office in the capital Tirana.
Four demonstrators and two police officers were injured during the clash, according to the Albanian Ministry of Health and Social Protection.
