Albanian President Ilir Meta has returned to the National Assembly another law, this time the addition to the concession contract in Porto – Romano for the company “MULT (MULTY BUOY MOORING)”, approved on April 30.

According to the president, the procedures followed by the contracting authority (Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy) have bypassed the competition procedures.

Further on, in returning the law on the Porto Romano extension, Meta argues that the additional agreement has created a new contractual relationship, in violation of the principles and provisions provided in the Maritime Code of the Republic of Albania.

The President writes that through the above violations, the hierarchy of normative acts in the Republic of Albania has been violated, as sanctioned in Article 116 of the Constitution.
“Practically under the procedure of an additional agreement, a new concession right was granted, outside the main object of the concession, which requires the Contracting Authority to follow all the procedures of law no. 125/2013, for open and transparent competition”, it is commented in the return of the decree.
