Albanias electoral court rejects opposition request for rerun of Tirana vote.

By bne IntelliNews July 11, 2011
Albanias highest electoral court, The Electoral College of the Court of Appeals, has turned down the oppositions request for a rerun of Tirana mayor vote, thus putting an end to months-long disputes about the mayoral battle in the capital, Albanian Daily News said. After a double vote recount, the candidate of the country's ruling Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, was declared a winner of the Tirana elections with a tight 93-vote lead ahead of the opposition candidate and three-times Tirana mayor, Edi Rama. Basha has been a member of DP since 2005. He served as minister of public works (2005-2007) and foreign minister (2007-2009) in the first Berishas government and as an interior minister (2009-2011) in the current cabinet.
