The speaker of parliament, Ilir Meta has commented the proposal of the President of Republic, Bujar Nishani about the name of Gent Sejko as governor of the Bank of Albania. The head of parliament says that there is still no clear or final positioning about concrete names, but the procedures of discussion of the president’s decree continue.

According to Meta, Nishani has met his constitutional obligation, following a process of selection and consultation that he has conducted. He says that once the governor candidate is heard at the economy committee, there will perhaps be a clearer positioning, in coordination with the Socialist Party.

Meta declared that the issue of the governor must be solved as soon as possible, in the interest of the independence of the institution of the Bank of Albania. /ibna/
