Florian Raunig, OSCE Ambassador in Tirana, considers Albanian legal framework on party financing deficient, meanwhile he emphasized the importance of transparency in the funding and expenditure of political parties in electoral campaigns.


During his speech at the round table organized by the CEC to address opportunities for improving control on regime of finances of political parties, Raunig stressed that the law doesn't provide sufficient transparency in the reporting of campaign funds.


"The deficiencies in the legislation must be addressed. The law does not provide sufficient transparency in the reporting of campaign funds, because the actual law doesn't make them public before election day. OSCE recommended in its final report in 2013 elections, that in order to increase the transparency of campaign financing, political parties must report regularly to the CEC all the incomes and expenses incurred for campaign purposes. CEC should publish preliminary financial reports before election day," OSCE ambassador said.


Ambassador Raunig said also that political parties should serve as models of integrity in Albanian society and set in the center of their decisions the public interest.
