After the CEC response to the municipalities without mayors, the President of the Republic Ilir Meta has sent a letter to the Secretary General of the Prime Minister Ëngjëll Agaçi asking for information on local units where the mayors' mandate has ended prematurely.
We recall that in a response sent to the CEC Presidency, he emphasized that only three Vora, Dibra and Shkodra are without a chairman.
'' Referring to these provisions, the final body that becomes aware of the early termination of the mandate is the Council of Ministers, which according to Article 62 of the same law is the competent body 2 that decides the dismissal of the Mayor, and that according to the procedure should notify the President of the Republic of the continuation of further procedures for setting the date of the elections, in accordance with the Constitution and the Electoral Code.
