Albania election: Ominous silence 

14:45: The flow of new information concerning the election results has slowed down considerably over the last hours. As the Albanian press agency ATA reports, the vote counting process has been interrupted in seven of the 100 districts, according to the Central Electoral Commission.

According to BalkanWeb [AL], the reason is that in these zones the electoral commission members of the governing PS have walked out - the oppositional PD claims this is because they understood that the PS was losing. If the walkout was ordered from the PS party leadership, this could mean trouble.

Ilirian Celibashi, the head of the Central Electoral Commission has reminded [AL] the parties that it is more important that electoral standards are upheld than who turns out to be the winner.
