The president of Albania, Ilir Meta, will not decree a date for the early elections in Shkoder, after Valdrin Pjetri decided to withdraw from accepting his term as Mayor.

Asked by Top Channel, the spokesperson of the President, Tedi Blushi, said that the local elections will be on October 13th for all of Albania, including Shkoder.

Socialists are not expected to stay hand in hand, as the President will refuse to decree a new date for the elections in Shkoder. They will expect the issue to be treated by the Special Parliamentary Commission, which is investigating what the Socialists consider a serious Constitutional violation, the President’s decision to cancel the June 30th elections.
