Albania faces serious organised crime challenges and should pursue reforms that place it on a path of transparency, accountability, and growth.That is the bottom line argument of Ms. Monika Kryemadhi, the leader of the Socialist Movement for Integration, that is, the third biggest in the Albanian Parliament. The most powerful woman politician in Albania argues that Tirana needs a clear path of conditionality both for the sake of the process as well as the end destination. In other words, reforms have a value in their own right — for the sake of Albania — over and beyond EU membership aspirations.Q: Mrs. Kryemadhi, what do you view as your mission as the leader of the third biggest opposition political party in Albania, especially in view of critical negotiations with Brussels? What does “constructive opposition” mean in a political system where winner takes all?A: Our party is one of the youngest in Albania, but we have prioritised moving forward with a European Integration agenda.Currently, Albania is experiencing serious existential challenges: from the fight against organised crime and drug trafficking to tackling mass unemployment and high youth emigration.Our mission as the opposition is not merely to denounce these negative phenomena as the result of poor governance, but rather to provide viable policy alternatives to address the people’s concerns.
