Running for the Mayor of Tirana, Alimehmeti makes a strong statement and shoots Veliaj: Tirana is being built with dirty money
Written by SOT.COM.AL 30 Nëntor 2022
The candidate for the PD primaries, Ilir Alimehmeti, declared that in Tirana constructions are being made with dirty money, thus targeting the mayor Erion Veliaj.
Alimehmeti emphasized the lack of an inventory of unsold apartments and raised the concern of the high density of construction that has created a series of problems in Tirana.
The primary candidate claimed that the referendums should be the ones that will decide whether it will be built in a certain area or not.
"The constructions in the capital have been done without any kind of criteria, suffocating every kind of space. The city is made by people and special buildings are placed in function of people. Tirana in 2018 had 10 thousand inhabitants per km2. What happens from this density? There is no space for anyone, there is traffic, air pollution, water pollution, waste management problem. In this high population density, they continue to build. In the first quarter of this year, 339 construction permits were granted, in the second quarter 337 construction permits. There are 100-150 construction permits per month, 3-4 construction permits per day. We are making this density so strong that we suffer it in our daily life.
We must rely on human capital. Services and everything the municipality does is for people, not for buildings and concrete. People's lives are being directly affected. Get up in the morning, if you find a smiling person, take a picture of them, it's a rare thing. From the moment we leave the house, we encounter microscopic sidewalks, blocked cars, to take the children to schools that are far away, because there are no schools nearby. There are no more happy people in Tirana, because it was not thought of for the people", Alimehmeti said.
