Sources told A2 News that the Socialist Party has collected 47 signatures from MPs for removing President Ilir Meta from his post. An impeachment commission is expected to be established quickly to review the request.
The Head of the Socialist Party Parliamentary Group, Taulant Balla, declared that the request of more than 1/4th of the MPs have been made official. According to Balla, Meta has violated the Constitution before and during the electoral campaign.
“The President, before and during the campaign, ahs committed actions that fall against the Constitution. He did not reflect even after the previous resolution, through which the Parliament asked the President to get within the lines of the Constitution. He kept committing actions that fall against the Constitution. The Parliament will decide in the upcoming days. The request will go through the Commission of Laws, which must declare whether the request fulfills the legal criteria. The Parliamentary Investigative Commission will then investigate the case. The Parliament has the necessary sovereignty to exert its term until July 8th”, Balla declared.
As regards the first decision, Balla said that the Venice Commission response has been decisive in that case.
