30 July 2020 Statement of the President of the Republic, H. E. Ilir Meta
Today’s unilateral and needless change of the Constitution by the semi legitimate Parliament is an anti-constitutional and unacceptable act!
Violent change of the Constitution killed the consensual agreements of January 14th and June 5th, which enabled an inclusive process and outcome, blowing therefore established trust between the parties, social peace and the European integration process of Albania.
Opportunist and hypocritical rhetoric of some internationals go against the strategic aspiration and project of Albanians to build a European future.
No hostage-taking gang will be able to escape a well-merited answer from the might of the united citizens against this coup d’état.
The President of the Republic will as always be on duty protecting the Constitution, the unalienable rights and will of citizens to take their destiny in their hands.
Edi Rama today dared the Albanian people to a historic challenge. He bragged for being the son of a communist who hung in Kukës square the poets of freedom of speech.
We Albanians will answer back to the end!
