  • [01] Italy to back Albania overcome difficulties, minister says

    ROME, Feb 27 (ATA) - By Ilenja Mehilli: Italy's Defence Minister Beniamino Andreata has issued some statements on political tension in Albania.

    "We are closely following the developments in Albania," Andreata said adding "we think that Albania is not a country in anarchy; it has sufficient police forces, which are backed by Italy."

    The Bulgarian Defence minister Gervanov Anajev, visiting Italy, and the Italian one held a news conference focusing on Albania.

    "We are very attentive of what is happening in the Balkan region and above all in Albania and we are seriously much concerned about it," Anajev, Bulgarian defence minister said.

    "Interest on Albania is a fundamental element on the Balkan stability, primary condition that the Balkan states can adhere to NATO," Andreata said. "Our policy aims at reinforcing Balkan institutions."

    Andreata said that "rumours on a military intervention in Albania are groundless and commentaries on it are unpleasant game. But this cannot mean that we will not offer maximum support to Albania to enable it overcome difficulties." ake/ak/

    [04] Coalition round table postponed

    TIRANA, Feb 28 (ATA) - By Aurel Simoni: A round table of the coalition government parties scheduled for Saturday at 11.00 a.m. at the Palace of Congresses was put off until another time because of technical problems, Preç Zogaj, Secretary General of the Democratic Alliance party (DAP) told press on Saturday.

    Vasil Melo, leader of the Human Rights Union party (HRUP) waited for 20 minutes for the others to come but was informed later that the organizer of the meeting Neritan Ceka, president of the Democratic Alliance party (DAP) had postponed it.

    "We were interested in this round table of party's representatives included in the coalition, a table called in by Ceka, but as I saw it was postponed," Melo said to ATA.

    "This shows clearly that the coalition is not properly functioning because of the lack of coordination between the parties. Thus, its institutionalization is necessary to enable normal work and overcoming of difficult situations Albania is facing," Melo said. s.sh/mima/ak/

    TIRANE, Feb 28 (ATA)-By E. Abilekaj, The Shkoder events, for the Albanian Prime Minister, showed sluggishness on the part of certain public order segments and will lead to a renovation of the Interior Ministry staff from the above to the grassroots.

    [09] Bruner says problems with Constitutional Court stem from vague legislation

    TIRANE, Feb 28 (ATA)-By K. Kostreci, The director of German Eastern Institute, Georg Bruner, said problems existing between Parliament and the Constitutional court stem from unclearness of laws."

    "There should be a distinction between certain individuals and institutions," Bruner told a news Conference in Tirane on Saturday.

    Explaining the position of the Constitutional Court as an institution, Bruner added that on one hand this court has several rights which make it a political institution, but on the other hand it should be independent because it is a court.

    "This problem would be resolved through a political self-restraint. This is not so easy to realise in these moments in Albania, therefore depoliticised persons should deal with the selection of judges," said Bruner.

    He said that the Constitutional Court has the right to say the last word on the Constitution's interpretation, but parliament by two/thirds can make legislative changes.

    "Rotation in principle is clear in the Albanian constitutional law, but the procedures when and how should the rotation be carried out are unclear," said Bruner.

    Albanian parliamentary speaker Skender Gjinushi told ATA on Friday that the Constitutional Court was self-suspended as it had not carried out the rotation based on the Constitutional law.

    He added that as long as rotation was not carried out the court's decisions would be illegal and that parliament would no more tackle this issue.

    The article 1 of law 8257, dated November 19,1997, says "Failure to carry out rotation suspends Constitutional Court's functions". /pas/lm/
