While the Electoral Court examined the complaint of the Socialist Party to invalidate the recounting of ballots in the constituency of Shkoder, Koli Bele, legal representative of the Socialist Party said today that the SP withdraws from this demand, because no there was no change of result out of this recounting.

Meanwhile, the Socialist Party has submitted to the Electoral Court another request where it demands the invalidation of the result in the constituency of Lezhe and for elections to be repeated in this constituency.

15 days ago, the Central Election Commission approved the result of the elections for the constituency of Lezhe. Contrary to the previous result, after the verification of 10 tables, which according to DP were manipulated, the division of seats in this constituency gave an extra seat to the Democratic Party. /ibna/
