OSCE rejected the candidature of former Albanian Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati as an ambassador of media freedom in the organization. Bushati was one of four candidatures proposed by Premier Edi Rama and Albania which holds the OSCE Chairmanship for 2020.
Sources from OSCE say there is no race in such occasions, there are proposals to be included in the process and then the executive, which is currently chaired by Albania and Rama, makes the proposals to the member countries which take the decision.
The same sources said that out of 11 candidates for key posts in OSCE, the Albanian chairmanship proposed only four candidates on November 29. Bushati does not figure in the four candidatures proposed by the Albanian chairmanship.
