"This is the fifth election in a row and they still do not understand. Instead of reflecting on themselves, they focus on confrontation and accusations against us.

His Socialist Party won 74 of 140 seats in the general elections on April 25 securing a third mandate defeating the opposition Democratic Party (DP) and its tiny ally grouped in the coalition for 'change.' The loss of DP has caused an? uproar among some circles of opposition asking for the resignation of chairman Lulzim Basha.

"The third time is more difficult, but it is also more beautiful. We have won an absolute majority, so we do not need support. Maybe we could have a bigger difference, but this time Albania voted with a new electoral system, with semi-open lists and preferences and had many invalid votes. Many people did not understand how to vote, they chose us as a party, but gave priority to other candidates and the vote was called invalid," says Rama.
Answering the question that the opposition accuses Rama of fraud and vote buying the premier said:
"This time we had four or five polls and unlike the past, they were all in line with the result. "Piepoli" shot exactly, but also the Greek pollsters who worked for Euronews Albania had announced the result. The preliminary report of the OSCE is positive and the entire international community through various representations has followed and confirmed the regularity of the elections."
