The OSCE and the EU have reacted immediately after reaching an agreement on electoral reform. The OSCE has called for these changes to be approved by the Assembly as soon as possible.
“The OSCE presence in Albania welcomes the cross-party agreement on electoral reform, in line with OSCE / ODIHR recommendations, an essential process that we have supported for years.
It is commendable that all political parties became part of this process and that their constructive proposals as well as their ability to compromise and accept different views contributed to an important step forward for democracy in Albania, for the benefit of Albanian citizens.
We congratulate the members of the Political Council of the electoral reform for their determination to reach a final agreement. We hope that all agreed changes will be approved by the Assembly as soon as possible. The presence remains ready to continue to support the Albanian authorities during the implementation of the reform “, says OSCE.
