With the deadline for political party registration with the Central Election Commission looming in just 13 days, the Socialist Party has officially issued a request to participate in the local elections.
The Socialist Party’s request to register with the Central Election Commission for the June 30 elections holds the signature of the secretary for the electoral coordination, Blerina Gjylameti.
As previously stated, the Socialist Party is determined to go to the local elections despite the public statements by the Democratic Party and the Socialist Movement for Integration that there will be no local elections if Edi Rama remains the Prime Minister.
To this point in time, 16 small non-parliamentary parties were registered with the Central Election Commission to participate in the local elections, while the Socialist Party is so far the only parliamentary party which has expressed the will to register with the CEC.
The 21st of April is the deadline for the registration of political parties in the CEC, and 10 days later is the deadline for the registration of coalitions.
According to the Electoral Code, the deposit of multi-name lists of candidates for Municipal Councils and councils should be made no later than 13 May.
