4 April 2020 Statement of the President of the Republic, H.E. Ilir Meta
I invite all citizens to strictly follow all the instructions and restrictions made public due to the global pandemic COVID-19, as this is in our common interest.
In this way, we not only protect our health, but also help doctors and health personnel, who are sacrificing and risking their health of all of us.
Meanwhile, it is important that every act of the Council of Ministers that is approved in this situation, is subjected to an advance in-depth assessment, in proportion to the situation that necessarily dictates their approval.
Every measure taken must be in line with the general public and national interest, and in harmony with the hierarchy of applicable norms, so that the adoption of restrictive measures does not jeopardize the creation of new social and judicial conflicts.
The restrictive measures must be in accordance with the Constitution of the Republic of Albania and the laws in force, but also respond only to the need and urgency to cope with the state of natural disaster announced by the Council of Ministers.
The closer cooperation between the citizens and the institutions is the main guarantee for the most efficient coping of this pandemic for all.
