    Minister Denaj: There is no tax increase, no new tax on oil and gas


    Finance and Economy Minister Anila Denaj has denied the allegations of the opposition that the oil and gas taxes, as well as tariffs to finance security reserves will increase. Minister Denaj took to Twitter to address the allegations of DP leader Lulzim Basha, stating that the claim of the former, on the oil tax increase has reminded her of the saying: ” When losing an argument, the looser starts nit picking! The minister writes that there is no increase in taxes or new taxes.

    When losing an argument, the loser starts nit picking! This came to my mind when i heard Lulzim Basha talking about oil tax increase. Another product of an increasingly unfortunate fantasy! There is no tax increase, no new taxes!

    We recall that on Wednesday, Top Channel claimed that the government has reactivated a draft law, which sets additional oil fees to finance the mandatory security reserve. According to this television, the money for oil, deposits and administrative costs of the agency will be provided by a new tariff on oil and gas, which is expected to be 2 lek per liter or about 20 euros per ton. But the minister has denied the allegations. / Tiranapost.al.
