The US Embassy calls on political parties before May 14: Electoral activities should be carried out in accordance with the law
The US Embassy in Tirana has issued a call to political parties, when we are 50 days away from the May 14 local elections.
In a post on social networks, the American embassy asks political parties and institutions to ensure that election activities are carried out in accordance with Albanian law and international standards.
"After 50 days, on May 14, Albania will hold nationwide local elections. We call on all political parties and institutions to ensure that election activities are carried out in accordance with Albanian law and international standards.
Following the April 2021 parliamentary elections, the ODIHR report outlines areas where continued progress has been made, as well as gaps. In particular, there were credible reports of vote buying, pressure on voters and misuse of state resources and personal data. The United States calls on the government, parties and state institutions to implement the recommendations of the ODIHR.
As Ambassador Kim recently discussed with party leaders, political parties must ensure that election campaigns and activities are conducted in a fair, orderly and transparent manner. Leaders must ensure that their lists of candidates meet the requirements of the law, as well as the expectations of Albanian citizens for clean candidates with high integrity. President Biden's Anti-Corruption Strategy identifies the unique threat corruption poses to our democracy and national security.
The United States strongly supports the demand of the Albanian people for a strong democracy. We urge all leaders and institutions to continue to improve Albania's electoral processes and ensure that Albania moves forward on its democratic path ," the US embassy statement said.
