Interview with Emilian Stafa
My name is Emilian Stafa born in Rrogozhinë (AL), I am of Albanian origin.
I work in the legal field (Lawyer) in criminal trials. I grew up at the age of 13 years in Albania, I moved to Emilia-Romagna from 1999 where I resumed my studies from middle school to the end of my law degree in the year 2014 at the faculty of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
I ran for the 26 May elections to support the candidate, the lawyer Rosario Boccia mayor, because it is a civic list released by political parties, so I chose to be a candidate for the council.
1. What is your proposal within the "Objective Castelfranco Emilia" list program?
My program on the list and the safety of citizens as a priority of the program, above all supported by me in person the other program is social policies.
2. If you win, what do you think you propose to be innovative for all citizens?
I think that if you win to keep that commitment that we have taken in front of our citizens and respond to their needs based on the rankings of the citizens, my commitment is to make citizens feel safe to be able to shoot in their beautiful city and feel safe in their home.
3. Why do you think they will have to vote for you?
We have been living for years in Castelfranco Emilia and over the years and trusting people, and over the years that we understand the problem that we have made a commitment to resolve and ensure that citizens vote for us because they believe in our project for their safety.
4. Being in possession of a dual citizenship, belonging to multiple cultures and speaking multiple languages is a point of advantage or disadvantage for you and why?
For me, having dual citizenship is just an advantage, which means representing two countries, one where you were born and raised to the age of 13, and the other where you live brings the family to work, everything that belongs to you.
5. You are of Albanian origin. What is Albania for you?
Albania for me is a country that belongs to me since I was born, I go back to visit and find relatives every year. And a country for those who do not know it has much to visit from the sea to the mountains.
6. Do you care about polls? What do they say about the list you signed up for?
Today's polls are used to show off but not to campaign. Of the list where I registered we are satisfied by our citizens that we see every day and their compliments for our honesty that we have made available to the citizens.
7. Don't you think they only chose you to draw on the votes of your community?
Personally not, since many of the ideas started from me like that of security.
8. What do you have to say to the other candidates of Albanian origin who compete in other lists?
I say that it is not important the parties that you are part of but what you do with each of us, I think I made a choice with passion and honesty.
