“It’s only fair that all of Albania and the international community have their eyes on the parliament of this country, in order for it to function in a normal way. This doesn’t mean that there should not be intensive debates, but it’s important for these debates to be constructive in order to send the country forward. This is why I look forward to collaborating and moving forward with the reforms”, said Arvizu.
