Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama reached out to the opposition to cooperate in choosing a new president, at a time when a Special Parliamentary Committee has been enacted to impeach President Ilir Meta over alleged unconstitutional behavior.
For Andi Bushati, PM Rama’s declaration is “a hypocrisy” and “lacks logical sense”, as according to him it makes no sense to reach out to the opposition while at the same time accusing the president that he has sided with the opposition.
“The SP has accused Meta of defending the opposition, then he invites the opposition to choose someone else. Rama’s reasoning is lacking logic, and since it is not logically convincing, the invitation is mere hypocrisy”, he said.
According to analyst Andi Bushati, all this is being done to silence the electoral fraud debate.
Furthermore, he disagrees with Bushati in saying that president Meta has been violating the Constitution for over two years, and should have already been impeached.
But on the other hand, Haxhiu believes that this is highly unlikely and asserted that the president will continue his term until the end.
“Edi Rama and the SP have nothing personal against Ilir Meta. The case is over constitutional violations, starting with the case where he refused to decree Gent Cakaj as foreign affairs minister, and then Sander Lleshaj as interior minister”.
Haxhiu added that Rama’s invitation to the opposition will remain in force even if Meta is not discharged.
“Rama has declared that it does not matter when it will begin, and when a new president will be chosen he would want to do that in collaboration with the opposition”, said Haxhiu.
