Massive participation in the opposition’s forewarned protest of January 27 will be a message that will speak more than a political speech. The opposition’s leader, Lulzim Basha made it clear to the citizens in Vlora on Sunday that their participation would be a direct hit to a corrupted government elected through crime’s votes.
"Citizens’ problems resolution is not among the priorities of a government elected with crime’s support. On the other side the citizens are obligated to pay a sum of EUR 200 Million due to a debt toward the Albanian Power Corporation (APC). This figure is paid each year by the citizens to five concessionaries, five pigs of crime and corruption who share their profits with Premier Rama. There no reason for a government whose fate is tied to that of the citizens to not immediately interrupt this criminal and corruptive relation, pay the debt to the APC and relieve the citizens from the unfair interests,” declared Basha.
He stressed that the democrats are determined to take this step immediately after gaining power.
“We will give to the citizens a government which does not send the money in the oligarchs’ hands but give it to the citizens. They will be able to bring down this corrupted government only through a wave of massive protests that will restore their right to free vote,” said Basha.
