“Vetting is showing that justice needs a drastic reform”
Interview with the Socialist Party MP, Andrea Marto: “The opposition must play its role by offering alternatives. Theories of overthrowing power through protests are anachronic. In a democracy, power is won with votes. The opposition will have the chance to show its strength in the 2019 local government elections, which are approaching”

 « The vetting process, which aims at reforming the justice system, is showing what the Socialist Party and public opinion was expecting. It is showing that the justice system needs a drastic reform”. This is the opinion of the Socialist Party MP, Andrea Marto in an interview for Albanian Free Press.  Meanwhile, he also comments the opposition’s actions. According to him, there’s no point in trying to overthrow the government through protests. “The opposition must play its role by offering alternatives. Theories of overthrowing power through protests are anachronic. In a democracy, power is won with votes. The opposition will have the chance to show its strength in the 2019 local government elections, which are approaching”, he adds. On the other hand, the socialist MP also talks about the negotiations between Albania and the European Union which are expected to start in June 2019. “Of course the negotiations will start in June 2019. Their delay did not come due to Albania’s failure to deliver its criteria, but due to the political balances in several EU member countries. Currently, no new criteria have been imposed on Albania. The majority is working day and night to deliver all of the obligations”, he says. Meanwhile, he concludes that “the main problem relates to the lack of cooperation between political forces. Albania has long suffered from this, but recently, the aggravation of relations between majority and opposition has reached its peak. I think that time has come for this situation to change and everyone should contribute toward this”.
