Technical ministers resign. Their office will be delegated to the deputy ministers until the composition of the new government of the center-left prime minister Edi Rama. Today they have officially resigned their resignation.
Earlier, the media reported that ministers and the Deputy Prime Minister would resign after the publication of the OSCE / ODHIR report on the conduct of the elections.
Their presence in the cabinet of Edi Rama was found based on the agreement reached last May 17 between the premier and the center-right leader Lulzim basha , which put an end to a long political crisis that threatened to blow up the political elections of last year due to threats of boycott by the opposition.
The purpose of this unusual political move was to offer the center-right opposition some guarantees and the possibility of monitoring the entire electoral process. The opposition was in fact entrusted with the leadership of the Ministries of the Interior, Justice, Finance, Health, Education and Welfare, as well as the presidency of the Central Election Commission.
Rama had declared that the center-right ministers should have remained in office until after the elections of the last 25 June, in which the socialist party of the prime minister recorded a clear victory, while the center-right suffered a defeat that sees it with a lower presence in the classroom than even that found in the previous parliament.
The opposition representatives will not withdraw "until an election report is drawn up," said Basha several times, according to which the outcome of the political elections was the result of manipulations and in particular the buying and selling of votes. In fact, in their report on the elections, the opposition ministers affirm that "the phenomenon of the buying and selling of the votes has been quite widespread".
Critics have also been addressed to the police, "which has proven to be ineffective in preventing criminal groups committed to supporting political forces, particularly in Dibra, Lezha and Shkodra (in the north of the country) and in Elbasan (in central Albania ).
The coordination between the State police and the other institutions was not carried out to the extent necessary, as regards the monitoring of the role of the public administration during the electoral campaign ", reads the report, in which the Public Prosecutor is asked to lead a transparent investigation against at least 110 people reported for committing electoral crimes.
The center-right ministers maintain that "the practice of technical representatives of the opposition to the government, for a period of three to six months before the election date, could be a good solution given the tensions that have always accompanied the electoral processes" . Their assignment will now be delegated to the deputy ministers up to the composition of the new government probably in the second half of next September.
