The President of the Republic, H.E. Ilir Meta met with the Deputy Chair of the CDU / CSU Parliamentary Group, the German Member of Parliament, Mrs. Katja Leikert.
President Meta praised the very good relations between Albania and Germany, and the special attention Germany is paying to Albania, the region and our European perspective.
The Head of State appreciated the special commitment of Bundestag and especially of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group for preventing the deepening of the political crisis in the country, and stressed that had the wise advice of senior CDU leaders been heard on time, the situation today would be quite different.
President Meta reiterated that elections are the only solution to this crisis, and that 13 October is an opportunity not to be missed as it would only escalate this crisis further.
“If local politicians are unable to resolve this crisis learning from countries with consolidated democratic experience, they have the opportunity to learn from a new state like Kosovo where citizens are given the opportunity to have their say through early elections for the future of governing institutions ”, – emphasized the Head of State.
