                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Oct. 5 - Albanian President Alfred Moisiu on Thursday convened 11 political parties present in the parliament urging them to reach a consensus on the election date for the local polls. They are expected to be held between Dec. 20 and Jan. 20. This is considered from the opposition a bad timing and prone to manipulation. Moisiu convened the political parties following continuous requests from the Socialist-led opposition not to hold the polls for municipalities and communes during the harsh winter period. The ruling Democratic Party majority of Prime Minister Sali Berisha says they want no change of the date and to respect the Constitution. "I have declared and now it's the case again to confirm that my stand is to fully respect the legal and constitutional timing unless you yourselves, competing political forces, would reach another solution by consensus," Moisiu told the politicians he had convened.
This is the second effort by the country's president  after that of December last year when he again convened the political parties trying to urge them to continue with the electoral reform required to hold free and fair elections, a continuous shortcoming in post-communist Albania.
Following mediation from international institutions Albanian political groupings reached a consensus in August to give more time to a parliamentary committee to draft electoral reforms to resolve a dispute that had threatened to delay municipal elections. But more than a month later no results have been seen, according to Moisiu, holding the second round-table with the parties after that of December last year. He urged them to continue with the electoral reform. "The promised reform has yet to produce the desired results," Moisiu told politicians. "Preparation and holding a regular electoral process would be good news for citizens, an important democratic achievement and Albania's positive signal to our international partners, especially after signing the Stabilization and Association Agreement and our efforts for a fast integration into NATO," he added.
Albania is making efforts to get full membership into the European Union and NATO. 
Though not affecting the central government, the local polls are considered a test for the support to the government at a time when the opposition says it is incapable of running the country. Elections in post-communist Albania have always been held with claims and fell short of full compliance with democratic standards. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which monitored the 2005 general election, has said the poll marked an improvement but still fell short of international standards with incorrect voter lists being a key shortcoming with many voters listed in different places.

Argita spoke about her assets in a television interview with Klan TV. She said she decided to disclose her fortune although not obliged to by law in order to throw away and deny rumors by the opposition Socialists that she had won wealth because of support secured as daughter of the country's prime minister. Argita said everything she owns was acquired through her job with the international institutions in Kosova where her husband had also worked during the past five years.

                    [post_content] => OTRANTO, Oct. 3 - Two hundreds kilograms of marijuana were found Tuesday by the Italian police in two speedboats that had crossed the Adriatic Sea from Albania to Otranto, Italy. It is believed they had left the seaside in Vlora and Fieri when they were noticed by the Italian Guardia di Finanza. It is also believed the two speedboats were driven by five persons who fled after abandoning the boats. Three days ago the Guardia di Finanza managed to stop a speedboat with nine people on board, trying to illegally cross the sea. It had left the Vlora shore at Karaburun.  The speedboat owner, a 42-year old man, was taken to Italian police.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Oct. 2 - A former official of the interior ministry accused government authorities, and precisely Interior Minister Sokol Olldashi, of producing up to 1.4 million false personal certificates lacking the proper security elements. Saimir Lacei said that he was witness to such an activities, accusing Olldashi directly for such a scandal. Lacei said that he was fired from the post after he had denounced these activities at such a high official level in the government.
That was immediately exploited by the opposition, accusing the government of trying to manipulate the up-coming local government elections with many voters trying to use false documents such as these. Earlier this year opposition officials of the local government in Tirana denounced the act of using personal certificates from other districts for Tirana residents.
The reaction from the government authorities was that the certificates were legal and they were produced based on all legal procedures. Eduart Aliko of the Interior Ministry said that Lacei was fired because of continuous disciplinary mistakes. At the same time the ministry sued Lacei for such an offense.

They are accustomed to getting near other teenagers at schools or in the bars in the so-called block quarter.

                    [post_content] => STRASBOURG, France, Oct. 3 - Albania's Prime Minister Sali Berisha took part Tuesday and spoke at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. The Albanian premier made a favorable expose of the country's situation, paying special attention to the government's successes in establishing the rule of law by arresting many criminal groups and by stopping former monopolies. Berisha also presented his idea of Albania, 1 euro trying to attract the support of the European parliamentarians and investors from their countries. Berisha thanked the Council of Europe for helping to reform the former "totalitarian and kleptocratic" regime in Albania. With help from the Council of Europe, Albania has "embarked on meaningful reforms in the field of decentralization, education and other sectors, such as property reform and information technology," Berisha said. He also reported reduced corruption, a "zero tolerance" for organized crime, and a significant reduction in drug trafficking during the past year. Berisha encouraged ratification by national parliaments of the Stabilization and Association Agreement which was signed last June with the European Union.
Berisha paid special attention to an independent Kosova that, he said, would contribute to Serbia's stability adding that Belgrade's opposition to independence for the breakaway province was unrealistic. "Despite all the changes that have occurred in Belgrade since the fall of Slobodan Milosevic's regime, still the ghost of greater Serbia persists ... and a lack of realism still dominates Belgrade's stance toward Kosova," said Berisha. Albania has been the biggest supporter of Kosova's independence, leading to frosty relations with Serbia. Tirana has, however, always said it has no territorial claims and does not intend to change its border. "Rest assured, in Pristina they all hope to join Brussels. I have not found a single person there who wants to join Albania," Berisha said, alluding to the capital of Kosova and the seat of the European Union. "The only thing we can do is to abide by the will of these people who want to have an independent state integrated into Europe."
Ethnic Albanians insist they should not be under Belgrade's authority. Serbia, as well as the Serb minority in Kosova, say Kosova is the heart of Serbia's ancient homeland and should remain within its borders. The United Nations hopes to resolve Kosova's status by the end of the year, but talks have stalled with both sides unwilling to compromise on their demands. "I believe that the independence of Kosova would contribute to the stability of Serbia and marginalize its radical forces," Berisha said. "Due to the absence of realism ... the agreement between Pristina and Belgrade is elusive."
