The Democrat leader, Lulzim Basha urges to the Prime Minister Edi Rama to put an end to the propaganda and focus on compensation of the damages caused by the floods all over the country. Through a press release issued on Monday he accused the government of totally abandoning the citizens while trying to use this natural calamity to evidence the government's successes.
"There's nothing spectacular in the dozens houses of Darzeze, Ferras and many other villages that are currently covered by the mud and have been damaged by the floods. Likewise there's nothing spectacular in Novosela or other areas of Vlora district where there's an absence of basic elements like food, power and water supply.
The only spectacular element is the Premier Rama's efforts to present this calamity as another success of his government. The citizens left at the mercy of fate after being totally abandoned by the government are another spectacular element. The chief of executive should immediately put aside the propaganda and deal with citizens' numerous problems. Damages compensation should be arranged without further delays because the winter is still long and not affordable under those conditions," declared Basha.
