Parliamentary Assembly Session: 25 to 29 January 2010

Assembly confirms the credentials of the Albanian delegation

[27/01/2010]  The credentials of the Albanian delegation to the Assembly, which were challenged on the opening day of the session on the grounds that it did not reflect the composition of the Albanian Parliament, were confirmed on 26 January.

In its opinion, the Rules Committee said it had examined the objections, but concluded the delegation was appointed in compliance with the Rules – though it also expressed the hope that “a solution will be found to end the political situation in the country which would also allow the Albanian parliament to appoint a complete delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly under normal conditions”.
