TIRANA, Dec. 5 - The Albanian parliament elected on Thursday Olsian Cela as the new Prosecutor General. 

The majority and new opposition in parliament joined the vote and with 101 votes in favor, two against and ten abstentions, Cela was approved as the new PG. 

He took his oath in Parliament at the end of Thursday's plenary session. 

Meanwhile, Çela was present in the parliament lodge, where he closely followed the vote.

Arta Marku, the temporary PG since December 2017, received 11 votes in favor, 22 against, 78 abstentions, while two members did not vote.

Fatjona Memcaj received eight votes in favor, six against, 87 abstentions and three did not vote.

In an interview for more than 60 minutes in front of the High Prosecutorial Council on November 13, Olsian Cela stated, among other things, that justice has been harsh with the poor. According to him, this should not happen, as it creates serious social problems. 

"By deepening social problems, we are preparing young generations who are on the streets today and have no future and who are tomorrow's criminals," Cela said.
