VIDEO | Ziberi: The ombudsman is an institution that cares about fundamental constitutional values
The last day of the election campaign for the first round of local elections scheduled for October 17, Sunday.
The candidates for mayors were on the field for 19 days and presented their programs at meetings with the citizens in order to gain their trust. However, even in these elections, there were mutual accusations of irregularities, accusations of voter bribery, agitation, pressure on voters, making lists.
Citizens have a guaranteed right to vote and should decide for themselves whether and to whom they will give confidence for a future term, but if they have faced any pressure or think that their right has been violated, they should report it to the Ombudsman, say from the ombudsman's office.
The guest in the Morning briefing on this topic was the Ombudsman Naser Ziberi.
