“There’s no doubt that there’s a need for a major reform which will address the recommendations made by OSCE-ODIHR in the past three elections and one which will address key issues which relate to democratic elections. Along with ODIHR, we offer to the parliament of Albania our full support in delivering this reform”.
This was declared by OSCE ambassador, Bernd Borchardt during a special meeting on the electoral reform.
“ODIHR has closely collaborated with the Commission assisting it to follow the recommendations for the elections”, said Urdur Gunnarsdottir, special advisor of the Head of ODIHR, adding that “we hope that these meetings have contributed in holding discussions about the best practices and international standards used in elections. Now, we’re ready to support the other phase of the process of electoral reform, offering advice during the process for the drafting of legal amendments”. /ibna/
