i'm counting the cost and dia has lost its crown as the bass is growing big economy where it all goes wrong for modi so soon after his landslide election victory no longer the world far fetched and china disrupted the multi-billion dollar global way famed history counting the costs on al-jazeera. to. see. albania was hoping to be asked to start european union membership talks this month but that now seems unlikely to happen leaders want to see a country with stable democratic institutions but in the past week president has canceled local elections that were scheduled for the end of the month because the opposition democratic party refuses to take part in them making matters worse the ruling socialist party has questions president met the constitutional authority to
5:22 pm
change the date there's no constitutional court to rule on the matter because it's judges finances a being investigated and they also suspended so albania presents a picture of anything but a stable democratic state which is a precondition for membership today on talk to al-jazeera the president of the met . mr president thank you for talking to. thank you very much for. into a showing to me come to the situation and now being here today is described as a constitutional crisis. the constitution describes albania as a parliamentary republic which means that you are elected by parliament and while you enjoy the trust of parliament parliament has the power to remove and replace you with a large majority as long as the constitutional court also ratify is parliament's
5:23 pm
decision but it may only do so if you have committed and agreed just silly unconstitutional act in parliaments opinion so do you think that you have committed such an act and do you think that parliament has indeed become such a process of replacing you is that what we saw in the censure motion brought to the floor of the parliament. i want to assure you all that i don't want to make use of this interview to talk about the parliament. and about its responsibilities. but that is very clear according to bill bennett of course it's a constitution that when the parliament can dismiss the president and it's very clear when the president is doing
5:24 pm
a very grave. constitutional violation. which also should be verified later from the constitutional court so i have to let you know that it is in the article in the constitution of the republic awful benno that has been violated from the president of the republic and i want to assure you that. the. constitutional order for by now is based on political pluralism and free and fair elections and what the president has that is exactly. showing his commitment. to to put attacked. political pluralism in the country and also to get on t.v.
5:25 pm
free and fair elections for all citizens of for albania because i was going to have voting for 45 years during the communist regime but everyone knows that there is a big difference between the elections and the voting as you know last month millions of europeans went to the polls to elect a new european parliament albania has had trouble elect. deciding when to elect 61 mayors. binny of ready to join the european union. albanians. the citizens of this country. they have been married the even earlier to join to you. but. in the coming hours and in the coming days the political leadership of the country. is going to be tested
5:26 pm
if it has the right maturity. not to be an obstacle for this spirit. of the albanian citizens because they hear more than i do 5 percent of the albedo so. eager to the joint of the european union and with my your decision i wanted to give time to leaders to reflect to calm down. and to create the conditions for a reasonable dialogue that demonstrates maturity. first of all towards our citizens here but also to assume your opinion him that this country yes is ready to make a major step ahead. all right but again going back to the constitutional
5:27 pm
issue the argument against you being expressed by the government is that you do not have the right to cancel an election. i am not talking about. political. speculations. i showed you that this is a very solid. constitutional decision. the only. authority supreme authority is the constitutional court. we. can. go on this sort of. decree but what i want to assure you it's this is waste of time what we are discussing and what they are debating because these ikari was published in official newspaper and according to our constitution and legislation from that moment it is obligation of every city to show central or local to implemented
5:28 pm
all right but politically speaking prime minister says i am not going to go back to the dialogue with the opposition to find a consensual date for an election they had a chance to register they decided to abstain and i'm going to stick to what we originally agreed to before the president what what is the solution to this are you going to recognize the result of the local elections if they happen now after this decree. was signed then came into force there is no formal and legal date for the elections about 30 of you about this claim of the but i mean is that arma i want to let you know that. this president of. postponing good johnno local elections in the
5:29 pm
country was created for the 1st time in 20062007 when he was the opposition leader and mayor of tehran and they wanted an additional document. to be. included in this technical process in order to participate in the elections and that time for the. very 1st time we had the such president which later also was repeated in different cases so this is not something you know of course this is not something normal because when everything is going. well. there is no reason to take a such. decision and. i hope that our prime minister is going to be more aware about the. ruling principle that the government
5:30 pm
bears greater responsibility for the whole country not only for its supporters or. militants and i hope that living up to this response plus responsibility and reflecting girl saw not in the best interests of the country but will you recognise the results if the government holds this election. there are no elections on 30 of these the committee has been published in the official newspaper and this is now legation of everyone to implemented so there are 2 sharply distinct interpretations of the constitution which the constitutional court would have to adjudicate there is no constitutional court because it's judges are undergoing
5:31 pm
ethical review being vetted because there is only. one supreme. of toted that can no such decree which he's the constitutional court and which is not functional for the moment as you rightly mentioned and everyone knows that the president of the republic has that every effort for a long time to avoid the such a situation but this is not any more important and now in these conditions this. the creek cannot be contested from any court in the country and of course it is. the creek which. i have signed in front of the albanian citizens taking all the responsibility for that and i'm sure that. i have them. the best to avoid this. further escalation
5:32 pm
of the conflict between the government and the opposition and to give to both sides the possibility to calm down to reflect and to enter soon in dialogue for the best interests of all the bells and in particular. in these days before these 2 very important positions are going to be taken from the member countries of the european union about the european future of the of it now let's talk about the domestic political aspects of your decree for a moment. you have as you say expressed in that to create the desire to see no threats to public security and no threats to democratic stability you've asked the 2 sides to come together under your aegis but so far the socialist party has not done so some of the smaller opposition parties have met with you and that seems
5:33 pm
to be the beginning of a dialogue but we have no. indication that it will in compass the main players quite the opposite the socialist led government says that it's going to proceed with the election and the democratic opposition says something rather cryptic but certainly not conciliatory mr basher on thursday said that he calls upon citizens to do whatever european citizens are forced to do when they're faced with the prospects of an effective could you tell which is which is how he describes the government of the roma so are you concerned that your decree doesn't seem to have had the desired effect i am. very determined. to do my best. for. creating. the necessary conditions for dialogue and for a viable.
