Second round of discussions for the president, Balla: Today's meeting with the opposition was fruitful
The second round of talks between the position and the two opposition groups took place today in the presidency of the Assembly, with representatives Fatmir Mediu and Shpëtim Idrizi. After the meeting Taulant Balla said that it was fruitful and that May 23 is the deadline of the second round.
"Very fruitful conversations, at least with two of the three groups, we had fruitful conversations. We have no more time. If we used to postpone deadlines, now we can not. "May 23 is the deadline for the second round", said Balla.
Whereas Fatmir Mediu spoke against the statement of the SP, which seeks a non-political candidate.
"It is absurd for politics to exclude politics. There are people who have contributed. I need to be wider in the areas that need to be met. It is important to meet the criteria ", said Mediu.
Shpëtim Idrizi also spoke to the media, saying:
"When we talk about a consensual president, it is assumed that the first three rounds must be by consensus. A one-sided president will not do well. So we have to sit down and find out who the right person is. "What contradicts the experience of how the president is elected, has been the tradition for the parties to meet, today we need to enter with concrete names and not leave the Albanians in the dark and we have the obligation to choose a person by consensus."
