SP-DP far from consensus on electronic voting and counting in the April 25 elections

The DP and SP seem to be far from reaching a consensus on electronic voting and counting in the April 25 elections. The realization of the pilot project would take place in no more than 20% of the constituencies and each party would express the two districts that wanted the electronic counting and voting to take place. PD and LSI have requested that this be realized in the districts of Fier and Korça. The SP has proposed several areas of Tirana and Korça for the pilot project of electronic counting and voting, but has withdrawn. SP says that this pilot project should be implemented only in one constituency and that this should be determined by the CEC itself . Meanwhile, for the immigrants' vote so far, the SP alternative is for it to be done by mail and that immigrants must first register their place of residence. In previous meetings, the CEC has decided to set up a system that will enable the registration of Albanian citizens living abroad to vote in the April 25 elections. Through a draft decision that is expected to be approved soon, the Central Election Commission requires immigrants to register but first declare their place of residence as provided by the law of 2016. Albanian citizens who will have to vote in the parliamentary elections, should provide all the data that will be required by the CEC system, which will also verify each citizen through two ways: the first way is to provide personal data of family members, while the second way through FACE ID.
