    (ANSAmed) - TIRANA, SEPTEMBER 13 - The new government of Albanian Socialist Premier Edi Rama on Wednesday morning won a vote of confidence in Parliament with 78 votes in favor and 51 against. The vote took place after a session of over 20 hours during which the program for the next four years was discussed.

    Rama, who was confirmed for a second mandate, promised an economic growth rate of 5.5-6% by 2021, thanks to public investments and the program ''One billion euros'' to involve private capital through joint public and private partnerships.

    The implementation of a judicial reform and acceleration of the European integration process with the objective of kicking off adhesion talks with the EU were two other pillars of the new government's program, which was harshly criticized by the opposition that accused the premier of ''demagogy and propaganda'' saying he did not offer ''any concrete objective''.
