The co-chairman of ad-hoc Parliamentary Committee for electoral reform, Bledi Çuçi declares that the use of technology in election does not guarantees mutual confidence.
He raised this concern in his address during "New voting technologies, standards, best practices and challenges of application of technology in elections' conference on Wednesday while adding that political dialogue is the only way to increase confidence level.
"In spite of the fact that the use of technology is possible in specific areas there are some aspects where I think that we should discuss if it should be used. I hope that this conference will help my colleagues in the electoral reform commission and the public opinion to understand the advantages and limitations of the use of technology during this electoral process," said Çuçi.
In conclusion he stressed that the problems experienced during previous elections were mostly related to the conflicts between majority and opposition.
"In my opinion pairs should be more inclined toward cooperation as the only way to increase citizens' confidence on the electoral process," stated Çuçi.
