Albanian opposition: Rama is arming his supporters hours before the elections

As the June 30 local elections scheduled for the government are approaching, the situation in Albania is getting more dangerous by the hour.

Opposition supporters, who have said they will stay away from the June 30th elections, are trying to prevent the preparations by destroying the technical infrastructure (polls, ballots, etc.) in cities and villages in Albania, often clashing with the Police.

But what is most worrying, is the number of reports coming from the opposition according to which Rama, apart from distributing money to increase participation in Sunday’s vote, is also arming his supporters with weapons in order to prevent the opposition from attempting to block the vote next Sunday!

The country’s President Ilir Meta today announced a new date for the municipal, October 13th, but Prime Minister Edi Rama insists that it will be held on Sunday, June 30th.
