The verification has established that there is a lack of social insurance payment for certain periods for the candidates Alimena and Tushe.

The exercise of another duty in institutions of public administration or in institutions of justice has also become a cause for disqualification, disqualifying Kalo and Lazimi.

According to his public CV, Merkuri has also provided expertise to the former Minister of State for Innovation and Public Administration, Department of Public Administration, Agency for the Provision of Integrated Public Services and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.

The other leader of the list, lawyer Eris Hysi, was a candidate for High Inspector of Justice.

The legal provisions provide that the 4 candidates for 2 vacant seats in the KLGj and 2 in the KLP are subject to voting in a plenary session after they are chosen from this list by political consensus (4 votes in favor) by the 5 members of the subcommittee of laws that is set up for this purpose.

This sub-committee also has the right, with 4 votes, to reinstate candidates disqualified by the General Secretary.

When there is no consensus, the names from the list are chosen by lot and if the Assembly fails in 3 consecutive votes to elect the new members of the KLJ and KLP with 84 votes, those who have been chosen by lot for the third round are automatically called appointed. .

The process will start after the General Secretary compiles the evaluation report for the candidates coming from the ranks of civil society, from which the 3rd member will be chosen for the vacant seats in the KLJ and KLP. Reporter.al
