Constitutional Court must abrogate the Corruptive Law - Democratic Party Supports the Lawsuit prepared by the Civil Society
The Democratic Party has filed a lawsuit in the Constitutional Court demanding the Suspension and Abrogation of Chapter VI of the Normative Act with the power of Law no. 9/2019 "On coping with the consequences of natural disasters". This law violates the Freedom of Economic Activity, as a constitutional freedom. Contracting for the 2019 Post-Earthquake Reconstruction Program with a fund of about Albanian Lekë 120 billion is being done with contractors selected without open competition, restricting economic freedoms. This law creates premises for the selection of businesses in clientelist way, causing high financial loss. AIS/OpenData, an Albanian Civil Society Organization prepared this Lawsuit and filed it to the Constitutional Court in September 2021. The Constitutional Court refused to review the Lawsuit , claiming that the organization cannot justify the direct interest in such claim. Recognizing the essence of the Lawsuit and responding to the Organization's request to set the Constitutional Court in motion at all costs, the Democratic Party supports the Civil Society request, and filed this Lawsuit signed by its 28 Members of Parliament. Now, the Constitutional Court must examine the unconstitutionality of this law.
