The electoral system is one of the key constituents of a democratic and legal state. As Albania is an official candidate for accession to the European Union, strengthening its democratic institutions is of key importance.

The event was opened by President of the Parliament of the Republic of Albania, His Excellency Mr. Ilir Meta and Slovenian Ambassador to Albania Her Excellency Mrs. Lea Stančič.

The event was carried out by: Leferije Luzi, Chairperson Central Election Commission of Albania, Dr. Alenka Verbole, Igor Vučko Director of the National Electoral Commission of the Republic of Slovenia and Ilir Rusmali recognized expert on elections in Albania and Andrej Vrčon Secretary General CEP. The participants discussed about ensuring the operational independence of the Central Election Commission in the light of the current electoral reform, about raising the level of political commitments for free and impartial functioning Electoral Management Bodies. Special attention was paid to the prevention of corruption, gender equality, representation of minorities and to a newly established training centre for the training of members of electoral commissions, and other actors in the electoral processes such as young people and civil society. The workshop was attended by over 40 participant’s including representatives of the election administration, representatives of political parties, representatives of non-governmental organizations working in the field of elections, independent experts and members of the diplomatic corps.

Centre for European Perspective has prepared the project in cooperation with the Central Election Commission of Republic of Albania and the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Albania.

Izvedba demokratičnih volitev predstavlja temelj demokratične in pravne države zato je za Albanijo kot kandidatko za članstvo v Evropski uniji krepitev demokratičnih institucij ključnega pomena. V Albaniji so v letu 2017 razpisane parlamentarne volitve, zato je tovrstna pomoč Republike Slovenije deležna velike pozornosti politike, stroke in medijev.

Dogodek sta otvorila predsednik parlamenta Republike Albanije njegova ekscelenca gospod Ilir Meta in slovenska veleposlanica v Albaniji njena ekscelenca gospa Lea Stančič.

Alenka Verbole, Igor Vučko direktor Državne volilne komisije Republike Slovenije, Ilir Rusmali priznan albanski strokovnjak s področja volitev in Andrej Vrčon Generalni sekretar CEP. Razprava je potekala v smeri zagotavljanja neodvisnosti delovanja Centralne volilne komisije v luči trenutne volilne reforme, ter dvigu ravni političnih zavez za svobodno in nepristransko delovanje. Posebna pozornost je bila namenjena preprečevanju korupcije, enakopravni zastopanosti obeh spolov, zastopanosti manjšin in novemu centru za izobraževanje članov volilnih komisij, ter ostalih akterjev v volilnih procesih kot na primer mladih in civilne družbe. Delavnice se je udeležilo več kot 40 udeležencev predstavnikov volilne administracije, predstavnikov političnih strank, predstavnikov nevladnih organizacij, ki delujejo na področju volitev, neodvisnih strokovnjakov, ter članov diplomatskega zbora.
