Albanian Committee on Legal Affairs to approve open-list system



Text sizeAa Aa

The ruling majority and parliamentary opposition have approved changes towards an open-list system. 

According to the new amendments, in the upcoming parliamentary elections the parties will present candidates that will run within their party for the mandate, as voters in addition to the party, will also select the MPs.

Although the changes do not specify whether pre-election coalitions will be banned, such a thing becomes technically impossible as the ballot papers will have to include the names of candidates from all parties who may be part of a coalition.

The amendments are expected to pass for approval in the next Parliamentary session. The united opposition has strongly opposed such a thing, saying that this action violates the agreement reached on June 5 with the mediation of the internationals.
