Elections, state sources in Albania are misused

“The misuse of state sources is a phenomenon which is present not only in countries like Albania, which are young democracies, but it is also spread in many European countries which have a long tradition of democratic elections”.

This was declared by the head of the Albanian Election Commission, Klement Zguri in a conference dubbed “Misuse of administrative sources during electoral processes”, adding that this phenomenon should be fought.

“I believe that transparency and accountability are efficient instruments. The more transparent political parties are, the more control society has on the legitimacy of the election campaigns and the less abuse there is with the electoral process”, Zguri said. /ibna/
