US Embassy Congratulates Albanians on Vote
The US Embassy in Tirana.

The US Embassy has released a statement in which it congratulates the Albanian population on yesterday’s vote.

The United States congratulates the citizens of Albania for exercising their democratic right to vote in the parliamentary elections on June 25, 2017. Voting was conducted efficiently and peacefully in the majority of polling places.

We commend the dedicated poll workers and observers who worked through a national holiday and the extreme heat to carry out their duties.

International observers witnessed incidents of vote buying, photographing of ballots, and intimidation of voters. Elections officials and law enforcement responded to many of these complaints resulting in some arrests.

While some electoral violations witnessed were serious and should be addressed, they were not so widespread as to change the overall outcome of the elections.
