The Parliamentary Commission which investigates alleged violations of the Constitution by the President of Albania Ilir Meta has gathered much information for the purposes of this investigation, which resumes after the 2 September.
Although the Albanian Parliament is still in the summer break, the Parliamentary Commission that oversees alleged violations of the Constitution by President Ilir Meta has collected a great deal of information on this investigation, which resumes after the 2 September.
Top Channel has learned that this Commission already has the answers coming from the Central Electoral Commission, the Electoral College and the Official Publications Center.
The Presidency collaborated by sending in reply to the material of 20 pages. It is not yet known whether the Head of State will be invited to testify as required by the regulations of these Commissions. Nor has the Presidency made it known whether this invitation will be accepted.
It is interesting to note that the Commission requested and received detailed information from the State Police and from the General Prosecutor's Office on electoral criminal proceedings for the period 1 ° January-10 June 2019 and for the period following the decriminalization of 30 June.
It is not clear how this information will be used by the Commission of Inquiry. Which does, however, know that he has drawn up a list, still top-secret, of those who will be witnesses.
In this regard, a delegation of the Venice Commission will arrive in Tirana on September 6 to be made aware of the facts. It should be relatively easy to give a quick opinion, since similar precedents are not lacking.
The Venice Commission, in fact, pronounced itself some time ago on a similar issue, when the Moldovan government had a confrontation with its President. On that occasion, the Commission expressed the opinion that it was worth dismissing the President of Moldova for constitutional violations.
Beyond what will be decided, the Meta Chairman has repeatedly expressed, also with interviews to the foreign press including the Italian The newspaper , all his complaints about the unconstitutionality of the elections in Albania of last 30 June, organized without the participation of an opposition and defined as 'communist'. With a probable distortion also of the turnout data , lower than that 23% proclaimed by the Central Electoral Commission.
Elections that had opened a crisis in the country to which Meta had followed the issuance of the Decree for the postponement of elections to 13 October, a date that was not accidental because the process of accession to the EU of Albania will be discussed on October 18.
