Freedom Party Chairman Ilir Meta met today Dame Audrey Glover, Head of the OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation Mission in Albania.
“We discussed at length the many concerns related to the realization of free and fair elections for the local government on May 14”, former Albanian President said in a press release after the meeting.
“I shared with Mrs. Glover the concern about the lists of voters and the attitudes of the Ministry of the Interior and of the Central Electoral Commission (CEC), which have created problems related to their deliberate change to create uncertainty among voters, violating the law and the 20-year consolidated practice for them”.
“I also shared with her the concern about the flagrant misuse of public financial funds, the use of public administration and state logistics infrastructure for the ruling party's campaign, violating the Electoral Code and any other law”.
“I also shared with Mrs. Glover the problem of media capture by the government, which is contrary to the interest of the voters, who are very interested and want to know widely about the candidates and their programs in order to make the right choice on the day of the vote. I expressed to Ambassador Glover the complete readiness of the opposition to contribute to a free, fair election process and to achieve the highest possible standards in elections”.
