Albania to test electronic voting in selected zones


TIRANA, Albania -- The government is working on a pilot project to test fingerprint technology in elections. Minister for Technology and Innovation Genc Pollo confirmed on Sunday (July 25th) that the project will be applied in some areas to see whether electronic voting could be used in local elections next year. Actually implementing it requires consensus from the opposition on amending the electoral code, a thorny issued ever since the June 2009 elections, which the opposition Socialist Party insists were manipulated.
