Tirana, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) Albania woke up on Wednesday under the effects of the euphoria of the Socialist Party (PSS), led by Prime Minister Edi Rama, due to its victory in the legislative elections and the possibility of ruling alone.
 
The Central Election Commission (CEC), which should have concluded counting the votes at 19:00 hours, local time, on Tuesday, reported that with 98 percent of ballots counted, the PSS had won 49 percent, an incontestable result that guarantees 74 of 140 seats in the national Parliament; that is, Rama can establish a government by itself.

On Tuesday evening, Rama called on his coreligionists and people who support it to go to Skanderbeg Square to celebrate the victory, achieved for the first time without an alliance with other political forces, and stressed that this third term granted by the people will be new and not an extension of the previous ones.

Although in Sunday's elections the Democratic Party (PDS) led by Lulzim Basha improved the results compared to those of 2017, the votes were not enough to achieve the purposes of their campaign to remove Rama from power, even in coalition with the Socialist Movement for Integration (LSI).
