Veliaj: Why the forgiveness of fines and the abolition of the public space tax have nothing to do with the election campaign
Mayor Erion Veliaj, invited to the morning program "Time to wake up", spoke about current affairs in Tirana, but also about the election campaign.
Bashkim Hoxha: Is the forgiveness of fines, or the tax on public space, related to the campaign?
Erion Veliaj: The first was set by a Normative Act in October 2020. The second course, the forgiveness of the tax for public spaces is something that was done last year. It is a decision made by the pandemic. And even years ago it was said that if the pandemic continues, the same will be done next year. So it is a déjà vu. So it has nothing to do with elections.
Veliaj also answered the question whether public administration is being used for the campaign.
"I take my case. I was yesterday until late at midnight on a TV show, out of office hours and I am again today, before office hours, with you. But we do not have a problem with those who do more than one job. The problem is with those who sleep ", said Veliaj.
