About Mr Rama

Politician, visual artist, publicist, former professor at the Art Academy, and former basketball player with the Albanian National Team, Edi Rama is now the Prime Minister of Albania, and the leader of the Socialist Party. Edi Rama served as Mayor of Tirana for three consecutive terms, from 2000 to 2011, and as Minister of Culture, Youth, and Sports of Albania. Through the use of art, and his unconventional approach to politics, Edi Rama has been a ground-breaking figure in the Albanian political landscape. During his time as Mayor of Tirana, he helped transform the capital into a more colourful and lively place to live.
