    4 Members of the CEC under Guard’s Protective Custody


    Four members of the Central Election Commission have been taken in Protective Custody by the Guard of the Republic. This decision was taken after 4 members of the majority ignored the decree of President Ilir Meta regarding the cancellation of June 30, and from Monday they gone on with their routine for the local elections. It was their request to the Ministry of Interior and from yesterday the deputy chairman of CEC, Denar Biba and members Bledar Skënderi, Edlira Jorgaqi and Rezarta Bitri are in protective custody. On the other hand, the CEC, as it had announced, convened today the meeting on the list of names of citizens who could be appointed as CEC members for the local elections of June 30, as well as other draft decisions on the progress of the process. But during today’s meeting, Chairman Klement Zguri was absent. We recall that on Monday, the CEC held meetings after signing Meta’s decree for the annulment of elections, and from there, Zguri said he could not adjudicate the decision and obey the president’s decree. In his absence, Deputy Chairman Denar Biba led the meeting today. / Tiranapost.al
