PM Haradinaj’s party, AAK, defended the recruitment of party-affiliated individuals this week as state enterprises fill with family members of the ruling coalition officials.
“It is unfair to point the finger at AAK, because in comparison with the others, AAK comes out as an angel,” said Muharrem Nitaj, Kosovo Assembly MP for the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, AAK, the party of Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj.
Nitaj’s reaction came after media reported on Monday that Egzon Nitaj had been hired to the IT department of the publicly-owned regional waste management enterprise, Pastrimi.
“I cannot understand this campaign to attack people who earn 300 to 400 euro salaries through their sweat, and presenting this as if it was a danger the state is facing,” said Nitaj in his response. “The damage to the public interest happens from the misuse of millions through nepotism of a higher level, and not because someone gets a job contract.”
