Parliament postpones vote on CEC composition,  Meta criticizes move

Tirana, 13 prill 2013

Parliament decided today to postpone vote on the Law Committee decision to the dismissal of the SMI-proposed member of the Central Election Commission (CEC), Ilirjan Muho.

Parliament Speaker Jozefina Topalli had not included the vote in today’s plennary. Reportedly, the postponement was requested by SP parliamentary group chair Gramoz Ruçi during the Conference of Chairs.  Chair of the Socialist Movement for Integration Ilir Meta told reporters the DP-supported decision resembled subversive, not political actions. It is worth noting that the DP justified the move with the aim to balance the CEC composition after SMI’s departure from the DP-led governing coalition. /ibna/
