US diplomat trying to mediate compromise in Albania politics

AP  |  Tirana (Albania) 

A senior US official has arrived in Tirana in the last effort to resolve the political crisis in which the opposition is demanding a caretaker cabinet to guide the country to a free and fair parliamentary next month.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Hoyt Brian Yee was in Tirana today to try to convince Prime Minister Edi Rama of the Socialist Party and main opposition Democratic Party leader Lulzim reach a compromise ahead of the June 18 parliamentary


The opposition, which has not registered for the June polls, has boycotted since February. The Democrats claim Rama's Cabinet will manipulate the vote.

Attempts so far by and US representatives to promote dialogue have failed.
