Albania’s president on Wednesday called on the people of his nation to topple the left-wing government, which he accused of violating the country’s constitution and of links to organized crime, reports AP.

President Ilir Meta said at a news conference that he hopes people will come to the capital Tirana on March 2. He said on that day he plans to sign his first decree against what he says is a “coup d’etat” being carried out by the government through the justice system.

The call by Meta comes as the Balkan nation of nearly 3 million has been enacting reforms in hopes of getting a green light to launch membership talks with the European Union in hopes of joining the bloc one day.
