18 January 2007

In a situation of a difficult election environment in the country, representatives of civil society came together on 18 January to discuss the pre-election conditions and possibilities of improving the already laden climate. Participating in the meeting were the Albanian Helsinki Committee, the Albanian Group of Human Rights, the Center for Parliamentary Studies, the Foundation of Open Society for Albania (OSFA), the Association for Democratic Culture, the Center for the protection of Children’s Rights in Albania, the Coalition for Participation of Women, Youth and Minorities in Politics, the Center for Legal and Civic Initiatives, the Forum of Free Thought, the Albanian Institute for the Development of Election Systems, etc.

As had happened in former elections in Albania, the civil society took note of a  striking lack of ethics  during the campaign of the various candidates as demonstrated in offenses, slanders, violation of privacy, hate speech, etc. In this meeting, the civil society spoke with one voice and decided to publish an Open Call stressing the need for an ethical and civilized election campaign. Among other things, the civil society calls upon the candidates “to focus on options and solutions that promise to carry the country forward while building on actual achievements and successes”. The Call also underlined the need for more transparency, dignified competition, ethical communication and decent speech as important elements of democracy.
