PRESS RELEASE: The ECR Party calls on the ruling party of Albania to uphold the June 5th Agreement.

The ECR Party strongly condemns Prime Minister Rama’s intentional breaking of the consensus that political parties in Albania reached on June 5th, and with support of the international community, on Albania’s Electoral Code Reform.

The unilateral action of the Rama Government to amend the Constitution, changing electoral rules just a few months before the scheduled elections, with an intention to bprevent opposition parties from forming electoral coalitions goes against the European orientation of Albania.

The ECR Party is very concerned with this practice, against the OSCE recommendations in support of free and fair elections and which is incompatible with democratic norms of NATO and EU Member States. The ECR Party calls on the ruling party of Albania to uphold the June 5th Agreement on Electoral Reform and its consensually adopted codification, that is now law.
