TIRANA, Sept. 20 – As the country’s Socialist majority put on the vote President Ilir Meta’s decree on the new National Theatre building accompanied by a few amendments on Thursday in parliament, the opposition marked its fourth absence since the start of the parliamentary season, instead holding its own meeting in Vlora.

Thursday’s parliamentary session was only attended by two Socialist Movement for Integration MPs, allegedly for the purpose of renewing their mandate, while the opposition continued in yet another location what it has called “public denouncement” of the links between crime and corruption.

On Wednesday, after meeting actors opposing the demolition of the old NT building altogether, opposition leader Lulzim Basha made a public announcement saying “voting the bill is a coup d’etat and whoever votes is considered a terrorist.”

According to Prime Minister Edi Rama, the opposition’s efforts to protect the old national theatre building are hypocritical, adding the government’s project will turn the theatre into one of the region’s most modern.
