Constitutional Amendments Heat Up Politics
TIRANA, April 16 – Constitutional amendments wanted from both the governing Democratic Party of Prime Minister Sali Berisha and the main opposition Socialist Party of Tirana Mayor Edi Rama have been harshly attacked by all the other political forces, including the country’s president and personalities. President Bamir Topi said in his recent interview to the private television station Top Channel that the two main political forces had not consulted anyone on the required amendments, offered at a time when the country was involved in the reforms for the electoral system. Topi, considering himself as the institutional and moral guarantor of the constitution, called such efforts as not being serious, with “ex tempora” proposals creating an unnecessary disruption and debate. “They show a lack of seriousness, as if we are on the brink of an amateur politics inspired from the momentous emotions”, something which aggravates the climate, adding those were attempts from certain clans to dominate stabilized powers and sliding back to the old Balkan policies.
