1. Recent chat with friend, he tells me: "Why are you so angry with #ErionVeliaj, he is a hard worker". I replied that #LaliEri is as dangerous to #Albania's future as #EnverHoxha was in 1946. He's a heartless, skilled liar at best hostage to mob at worst willing cooperator. ...
2. #ErionVeliaj was elected on 'zero construction' promise in historic central areas of #Tirana. During his first mandate he has turned said area into a massive construction site and is destroying the few quiet remaining islands of 1920s Tirana - Durres and Kavaja streets area.
3. #ErionVeliaj has loaded utility bills he controls with new and increased taxes, tripling these bills and making them unaffordable to poor Tirana residents, who at the same time might find themselves unemployed as Lali's 'police' thugs attacks small vendors any chance they get.
