    Rama-Hajdari confrontation in Parliament


    The head of the DP Parliamentary group, Rudina Hajdari and Prime Minister Edi Rama were the focus of a reciprocal debate today in Parliament. After Rama’s statement, where he guaranteed Albanians that there will not be any visa limitations, as well as when he accused the opposition for ” disgusting celebrations”, the DP MP stated that the decision of the Dutch parliament is concerning and the opposition is not to blame.

    “This is a concerning decision, while Rama blames the Opposition out of this parliament, finding alibis  to make others responsible for the lack of fulfillment of the government’s criteria. This decision could have derived from the extreme right wing, but it was approved from 108 MPs there. The groups and I want to change the system, but you do not agree and i understand why. The recommendations of OSCE/ODIHR were partially fulfilled and there’s room for improvement. The end of the reform should be accompanied by the change of system. We want an open public discussion with all the actors involved. The DP group and I, agree to a transparent majority system, and then the proportional one with open lists”, she said.

    Rama responded that he was wrongly cited.

    “Miss Hajdari, forgive me, but i have been wrongly cited. I did not say that to blame for the decision of the Dutch Parliament is the DP. What i said was that to blame is in fact MSI for a decision against the Albanians”, declared the PM. 

    The PM challenged the MP by stating that there’s a thousand and one ways to take the government.

    “There are a thousand and one ways to criticize and take the government, but i will not tell you what, just as i didn’t tell those before you. Albanians are a very political people, they cannot be lied to. If you’re able then take the votes”, said Rama./Tiranapost/D.Xh
