Paragraph 93

The Albanian Parliament adopted in February 2009 a Law No.10066, which amends law no.8952 on identity documents, and modifies the official term designating ID Cards to “Letërnjoftim”, while Article 105(1)a) and Article 179 of the Electoral Code still use the term “kartë identiteti”. In order to avoid any possible confusion regarding the officially valid ID documents to be used for the identification of voters before voting, the Venice Commission and the OSCE/ODIHR recommend that the relevant provisions of the Code be amended to reflect the legally valid terminology.
