Paragraph 69

VII. Voting process

The Code does not provide for voting abroad. This is a political choice which is not against international or European standards, but it must be underlined that the practice in Europe is increasingly in the direction of facilitating voting from abroad. The issue of giving Albanian citizens residing abroad the right to vote in a safe and reliable way could be addressed in the future, although the risks of doing so in a polarised political environment should be duly considered.
