Gledis Gjipali/Executive Director of EMA was invited on Vizion Plus to give his remarks on the local electoral process. He expressed that there have been technical incidents, but the overall process has been successfully completed as the procedural and legal acts have been carried out well. When asked about the case of Himara, Gjipali emphasized that it is a delicate municipality and added that it is a legal matter that may have an impact in the relations between countries, but not on the electoral process. Representatives from the Albanian Helsinki Committee expressed concerns after observing the polling stations, such as the presence of unauthorized individuals and electronic voting. Gjipali highlighted other issues that are debatable, such as ink on the finger, but they do not undermine the process unless they are done intentionally.
