The Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, reacted after the VOA news article about the interventions made by local officials, MPs and even Rama’s staff about hiring people without merit.
“We are seeing the day when the VOA is speaking badly about someone only based on unfounded phone calls. It is the first time that Albania is organizing a public race for hiring people in prisons, and the echo of rubbish media made it even to the USA”, Rama wrote on Twitter.
“You can easily go and verify the documents of the race and confront the results with the recruitments. Once you do that, you can talk bad as much as you want. You’re reminded of political appointing in the administration for the first time after 30 years, by making non-professional attacks exactly to those who are doing the most to stop this problem”, Rama wrote on social networks.
