Referring to the US State Department report, the Democratic Party accused the government of plunging the country into poverty and turning it into the most corrupt country in Europe. Former MP Jorida Tabaku said outgoing government corruption alienates American investors and closes jobs for Albanians.

The Democratic Party reacted to the US State Department report that ranks Albania one of the most corrupt countries in the Western Balkans, stressing that this government has plunged the country into poverty.

Former MP Jorida Tabaku said outgoing government corruption alienates American investors and closes jobs for Albanians.

Tabaku: Due to the corruption of the Rama government, Albanians cannot benefit from the millions of American investments. Albania with its strategic position in the Western Balkans, pro-American spirit and workforce should be a place where American businesses and enterprises should be among the most present in the region.

In 7 years, says Tabaku, this government has locked the Albanians in the prison of the oligarchy.

Tabaku: The report highlights concrete cases of US businesses leaving as a result of government corruption they have faced. The government has been hostile to such investments, has favored corruption over the investments of the country’s strategic partners. We do not promise miracles, but simple things. We will return the economy to normalcy and for the benefit of the citizens. This will enable the citizens to work here and not leave with thousands, as has happened for these 7 years.

The former Democratic MP said that the silent majority of Albanians, those who do not forget or lie about Rama’s empty promises in the April 25 elections, will vote for the man of the oligarchs and organized crime.
