The Socialist Movement for Integration (SMI) parliamentary group chairman, Petrit Vasili labels the social assistance in Albania as nearly inexistent. Through a public statement on Thursday he stressed that no social assistance is currently given to around 93.1% of the unemployed people in Albania.
"Only 6.9% of the unemployed in Albania receive social assistance. As consequence, Albanian ranks in the last places on a global scale for this indicator. Meantime the Prime Minister Edi Rama continues to hold a disregarding attitude and smile in front of this alarming situation.
The government preserves the calmness, without feeling the urge to provide a social assistance to the unemployed people. They have no time to deal with this issue. Meantime the government continues to register thousands of imaginary employments while reporting an inexistent decrease of unemployment level and poverty in Albania.
In spite of this propaganda the latest data released by International Labor Organization (ILO) unveil the truth about social assistance in this country. Let the Premier continue his humoristic-political shows related to the unemployment and social assistance. The published data are negative and inalienable. May God forbid the chief of executive from defining ILO as part of the media that unjustly attacks him, because if he decides to do so nothing would be able to stop him," said Vasili.
