The Socialist Movement for Integration has noticed several cases of pressure imposed on the electorate, which its candidate for MP in Tirana, Klajda Gjosha, said she will soon be taking to the competent bodies of law.
Gjosha said during “Ilva Now” at Euronews Albania that for months now she has been on the ground and has noticed “an immense pressure imposed on the electorate” especially on employees of the public administrates and private entrepreneurs.
“They are scared; I can tell you quite clearly that they are under an extraordinary pressure because of fear of losing their jobs or their businesses. They are scared when we knock on their doors because after our leave, it only takes an hour for tax inspectors to come to their doors,” – said Gjosha.
Asked by journalist Ilva Tare, whether these are actual cases, identified and publically denounced, Gjosha said that the SMI is working on a list of all the cases and will soon be presenting them to the relevant institutions.
“The use of power is extraordinarily common in Albania and it is used to impose fear on citizens. Yes, all our meetings represent concrete cases, which we are compiling in a list and will be presenting to the competent bodies as soon as possible,” added Gjosha.
