“Democracy needs active and well-informed citizens who participate and engage.”
This is what Prime Minister Albin Kurti said at the virtual meeting of the board of the Progressive Alliance.
He stressed the need for a good education and a free media that seeks the truth, exposes corruption and scandals, and holds elected representatives accountable.
Prime Minister Kurti emphasized the two most urgent issues for the citizens, to which the Governing Program responds: work and justice.
“Citizens want a democratic state that respects and protects human rights and civil rights, that functions based on the rule of law, freedom of the media and freedom of speech.
“They want an independent and professional justice system that truly delivers justice and a government that works for all, regardless of background or income,” he said.
The Progressive Alliance is an international political alliance of social democratic and progressive political parties and organizations.
