The Albanian Assembly’s Services, with the support of the OSCE Presence in Albania, organized an orientation programme for new Members of Parliament.
Speaking at the event, Ambassador Bernd Borchardt said the OSCE Presence has a long-standing, unique level of partnership with the Assembly, accompanying its development for many years. While the nature of such co-operation has changed and evolved during the years, as the needs of the Assembly have changed, the Presence stands ready to continue its support, he added.
“As part of that drive, we supported the drafting of a Code of Conduct for parliamentarians. This process is reaching its final stages while further ideas for improvements remain welcome. Its implementation will serve as an important milestone on the path to increase the public’s trust in the parliament’s work,” Ambassador Borchardt said.
