Tirana, 20 September 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency

Albania is not yet ready for electronic voting. Technology may turn into a threat for the process, therefore it must initially be applied in several levels and tried in specific areas.

For the expert of the Coalition for Free and Honest Elections, Ilir Rusmaili, technology cannot be seen as the solution of electoral problems.

“Technology is considered as the mechanism that saves the process from rigging. The calls for the introduction of technology are made by political parties for political opportunism. Technology must make the process, but it is impossible, because the process is made by people”, Rusmaili said. /balkaneu.com/
