Albanian Premier Edi Rama has called an urgent meeting of his closest staff following President Meta’s rejection of his candidate for the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs.
Sources of Syri.net close to the prime ministry said Rama is studying possible moves to put Gent Cakaj at the helm of the ministry despite the President’s refusal, as a vice minister with the capacities of the minister.
He followed the same strategy in the case of Sandër Lleshaj when the later was not decreed by Meta as the new Interior Minister. However, there is an important difference between the two cases.
In Lleshaj’s case, the Interior Minister Fatmir Xhafaj had already stepped down, while the current Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati is still in office, because Meta has not decreed his dismissal yet.
Rama has tried to solve the problem by asking nicely Bushati to step down, only to continue to pressure and blackmail him later, according to Syri.net sources.
It is still unknown what Bushati, who still is the Foreign Minister, will do to help for finding a solution.
