The offer of Prime Minister, Edi Rama that he is ready to cooperate with the opposition led by the Democratic Party leader, Lulzim Basha after the April 25 elections in Albania has been rejected by the latter.
In an interview on a local TV on Wednesday, Rama, who is also SP leader, expressed his readiness to cooperate after the poll with Lulzim Basha, but on the condition that he break away from President Ilir Meta and veteran DP leader Sali Berisha.
"After April 25, I am ready to cooperate with the opposition, and with Basha, but with a simple condition that he be separated from Meta and Berisha. The aim is to transform a political life that has really turned into a stress for Albanians and establish close cooperation as in the countries we want to reach and the ones we want to be like," Rama said.
But in a reaction on Wednesday evening Basha turned down the proposal saying that Rama cannot be part of the governance being confident that DP is going to be victorious after the election.
"On April 25, Albanians will vote number 9 to remove Rama and he will never be part of our government. His time is up. We will bring change and Albania will win," Basha wrote on Twitter./argumentum.al
