  • [01] 70 PER CENT OF EMPLOYEES DO NOT WANT TO WORK IN STATE ADMINISTRATION IN LUSHNJE

    LUSHNJE, NOV 2 (ATA) - By I Manka: A poll conducted with 127 employees of the state administration in Lushnje (Field of Myzeqe, southwestern Albania) showed that 89 of the interrogated or 70 per cent of the total number, do not want to work in the state administration.

    The reason for this answer was, for some of them, the low salaries. If their payment will be higher and almost close to that in the private sector, their opinion for the work in a state administration would be the opposite.

    But there is also an other motive mentioned by most of the interrogated: the political motive.

    "Following the March 1992 elections, 90 per cent of the state administration," they say, "was replaced by other people. If the political parties will see the state administration as a place to employ their fans, as DP acted in 1992, the abandonment of the administration will be inevitable."

    Almost all those asked in the poll are for a review of the status of the employee on the basis of professional criteria.

    The private sector with salaries frequently 30-75 per cent higher that in the state sector remains a serious competitor for the state.

    89 per cent of those working in the state administration who are looking for a job in the private sector are men. Women prefer to work in the state administration because, they say, "this work is more comfortable and with less troubles." ake/pas/xh/

    [03] ALBANIAN PRIME MINISTER LEFT FOR CRETE

    TIRANE, NOV 2 (ATA) - By Eva Allushi: Albanian Prime Minister Fatos Nano and the delegation he is leading left Sunday for the Greek Island of Crete to attend a summit to be held there for the first time, with the participation of 8 leaders of Balkan states.

    The main purpose of the Summit is the establishment of cooperation and relations of goodneighbourliness among the Balkan countries. A resolution is expected to be signed at the end of the meeting, which will include two decisions; one for the creation of a coordinating body for all the Balkan activities and the second for the institutionalization of the Summit which will be proposed to be convened once a year in the state which will have the rotating presidency of the coordinating body.

    The political nature of the resolution will be linked with the commitment of all participating states to respect the existing borders and the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of one another.

    In the context of the summit, a greater interest will be devoted to bilateral meetings, among which important for the Albanian party will be the Nano-Milosevic and Nano-Gligorov meetings. The main topic of these meetings will be the topic of Kosova and the Albanians living in their territories in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The meeting Nano- Simitis is expected to treat the consolidation of the relations between Albania and Greece.

    Observers from the European Union, the U.S. or Russia will, for the first time, not be present in the Summit of Crete. According to the Greek party, the reason is the fact that the Balkan countries want to discuss their questions without the participation of third parties.

    Albanian Prime Minister has voiced the need of Europeanization of the Balkans and of normal and civil ethnic relations.

    Before leaving for Crete, highlighting the importance of the bilateral meeting in the Summit, and the results to be reached in it, Nano said that "dialogue must be institutionalized and in order to serve this, we shall go from Athens to Istanbul. I will also propose that after the Istanbul meeting, the Balkan leaders be gathered in Tirane the following year," said Nano. ake/pas/xh/

    TIRANE, NOV 2 (ATA) - Albanian Prime Minister Fatos Nano on Sunday called for direct dialogue between ethnic Albanians and Serbians in Kosove. Nano declared that a direct line between Belgrade and Prishtine would lead to a final resolution to all the problems. He said he would ask from the Yugoslav president more rights for the ethnic Albanians of Kosova and free movement across the Albanian-Yugoslav border.

    "We shall demand full observation of the human rights in Kosova and application of democracy," said Nano, referring to what will be discussed in the Nano-Milosevic meeting in Crete. "The firs thing," said Nano, "will be the implementation of an agreement between the Albanians and the Serbians."

    He considered as important the institutionalisation of the inter- Balkan dialogue, and the solution of the problems related with the status of the Albanian citizens in Kosove.

    Referring to the agreement on education between Milosevic and Rugova, which is not being applied, Nano said that this will be one of the priorities to be discussed in Crete.
