President to Majority: "Do Not Be Afraid to Open Lists!"

Escalating his warnings against any violation of the June 5 political agreement on the election reform, President Ilir Meta has reminded the Socialist Party (SP) majority that it would be punished by citizens in such a case.
Through a Facebook status on Sunday Meta appealed for the opening of the electoral lists, which has become a bone of contention between majority and non- parliamentary opposition.
Albanians will go to polls on April 25 next year to elect a new 140-member Parliament.
"Any fraudulent maneuver that deprives citizens of the right to elect their own deputies, as promised, only with the intention of unilaterally terminating the June 5 Agreement, will be severely punished by all citizens who have been seeking deputies for 12 years and not chairmen's dolls," said the President who threatened the majority a few days ago that he could dissolve Parliament something which was harshly criticized by PM Edi Rama.
