The conflict between the President and the majority has culminated with the appointing of the Constitutional Court members, as President Meta threatened to disperse the Parliament.
“The Constitution of Albania has only one indisputable force that guarantees impartiality: the Constitutional Court. No one should deface the Constitution of Albania. The Parliament can be dispersed with one decree. The government can be brought down with one motion of no-confidence. The President can be removed by the Constitutional Court”, Meta said.
Some Socialist MPs made ironic reactions to the President’s declaration, as the President doesn’t have the right to disperse the parliament. It remains to be seen what step is President meta willing to take next.
