A report by PASOK Eurodeputy Anna Karamanou on the European Union's plan of action for Albania was ratified by a European Parliament plenary session on Thursday.
The report, among others, calls on the Albanian government to recognize and respect minority rights as an essential precondition for substantive social and economic changes to be brought about in Albania. The report comes in the wake of recent human rights violations during local elections.
The report also ascertains Albania's insecure position, which is indicated by political instability, the fragile character and violent competition of the party system, the bad functioning of the constitution, the non-observance of laws, administrative chaos, the high level of crime and corruption.
