Accusations between Prime Minister Sali Berisha and opposition leader Edi Rama do not stop.During the meeting with Luca Volonté, President of the parliamentary group of the European People's Party at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Berisha again attacked his political rival, accusing him of wanting to block the vote of the 6 August on the revocation of immunity and also the status of candidate country that Albania hopes to have in September. "Meantime - stressed Berisha - every Albanian citizen anxiously awaits the 6 vote in August to definitively break down the wall of corruption, thus opening the doors to Albania towards integration into European institutions ".
Berisha also informed the President of the EPP Parliamentary Group that the majority accepted all the opposition's demands for limiting immunity."It has been five years since Edi Rama tried to block the law on the waiver of immunity, requesting that this revocation take place with amendments to the Constitution. When we presented the project on the waiver of immunity, with the amendment to the constitution, drafted by the experts of the EC and Euralius, Rama refused to vote for him asking to vote on the Socialist Party project in which it was forbidden to arrest and control the houses of parliamentarians "said Berisha.Volonté expressed his concern about the obstructionism of the socialists, stressing that this is extremely damaging to Albania and the Albanians. "Edi Rama - said Volontè - during the last meeting with representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, he accused the government of disapproving of the waiver of immunity for high-ranking state officials, because according to Rama immunity protects corrupt officials, instead it turns out that he and the opposition are slowing down the lifting of immunity to protect corruption and block the status of candidate country in the European Union to the Albanians ".
