Prime Minister Edi Rama stated on Wednesday in a hearing session in the parliamentary inquiry commission for waste treatment plants that the state machinery has done a perfect job in decision making. The Prime Minister requested that the chairwoman of the committee, who is a representative of the Democratic Party (DP) not export the parliamentary and television debate to the meeting of the parliamentary committee.
Rama said that he was not there to uncover any affair. “The affair is in your opinion, which you have expressed in parliament, television, social networks, but here you cannot express it,” he said.
To Tabaku’s question that the three EU progress reports have expressed concern about the plants, Rama answered by emphasizing that “the EU has expressed concern because it is not the most preferred choice.”
“If you look at the progress reports, they talk about the very low level of waste separation at the source or the very low level of recycling as these are the preferences of the EU. We have not built incinerators, but waste processing and energy production plants,” Rama said.
Asked about the decision-making in the government meeting of December 17, 2014, Prime Minister Rama said that “you have received all these answers from previous witnesses.”
Rama also said that “linking government meetings, decisions and further chain with the accusation against Minister (Lefter) Koka is abusive.” He said that “I am proud of the two works which have been built in Elbasan and Fier.” / Argumentum.al
