Albania: MPs shroud parliament in pink smoke in bid to halt elections

Tensions erupted between members of the Albanian parliament in Tirana on Monday, after the opposition tried to prevent the ruling party from electing a temporary prosecutor general by setting off smoke bombs inside the parliament. Members of the opposition threw coloured smoke bombs inside the parliament hall in an attempt to interrupt and ultimately put a stop to the voting procedure. The... Еще voting was completed under a mist of pink smoke with the ruling Socialist Party succeeding in electing Arta Marku as the new general prosecutor. According to new legislation the general prosecutor must be appointed by the High Prosecutorial Council, although as the body is not yet formed Prime Minister Rama had urged the opposition (Democratic Party) to agree on electing the new prosecutor. Clashes erupted outside of the parliament as well, as protesters gathered to denounce the voting procedure as unconstitutional.
