One day after the candidate of the Socialist Party for Shkoder, Valdrin Pjetri, decided to withdraw from accepting his term as Mayor of the city, the Albanian Prime Minister said that although he is not a criminal, hiding a sentence received when he was 19 is not tolerable, and the consequences for the city of Shkoder are not justified.

The Prime Minister said that due to the fact that parties cannot verify the individuals, there must be a change of the decriminalization law.

“A candidate that lies in confidence with the declaration application, should no longer be able to abandon the voters that trusted his party. He must be removed from the race before he can be able to register for the elections”, Rama said.
