Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama held the weekly meeting with the electoral staff amid preparations for the upcoming parliamentary elections due on April 25, 2021.
In a brief press conference, the prime minister said that he is determined to vote the electoral changes “as they are”, even if the president decides to veto it.
Rama asked the head of state to other sign or veto the changes in the electoral code in order to continue with its implementation.
Asked on his opinion of the 5-points plan introduced by the leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, Rama said that he has not seen it.
A week ago, the Albanian parliament adopted the amendments made to the Electoral Code amid a tense plenary session as the majority clashed with the opposition.
97 MPs voted in favour of the changes, 15 voted against and 5 abstained.
The opposition, as well as the President of the Republic, are against the Electoral Code amendments, claiming it violates the June 5 agreement between the majority and the opposition.
