Socialist Party Wins Albanian Parliamentary ElectionsThe Socialist Party (SP) has won Albania's parliamentary elections by capturing 76 of the 140 seats in the parliament, the Central Electoral Committee announced this weekend.
The SP's main rival, the right-wing "Union For Victory" (UV) led by the Democratic Party, won 46 seats, while other parties gained the rest of the seats.
"Our victory was neither a surprise nor unexpected, but fruit of the Socialist majority's governing over the last four years," said SP Chairman Fatos Nano at the party's presidency meeting.
Nearly 2.5 million people, or 54.95 percent of the eligible voters, cast ballots in the elections during the four rounds of elections held from June 24 to July 29.
But the leader of the Democratic Party, Sali Berisha, declared his party did not accept the outcome because of "the police violence and falsification of results."
Under Albania's constitution, the new parliament will be in place within 20 days by President Rexhep Maidani's order.
