In the presence of international institutions, CEC started to train today the instructors of the commissioners who will be in the Local Election Administration Areas.
The chairman of the CEC, Lefteri Lleshi demanded from political parties to cooperate with the institution that she leads, in order to achieve a fair process and in accordance to the required standards.
“Parties must join the positive will of the CEC, in order to offer to citizens a fair and honest process, in order for the result to be acceptable from all parties”, said Lleshi.
The head of the CEC praised the role of instructors by saying that the “role of the instructors of the LEAE-s is important for the elections, therefore they must be unbiased.”
