Central Elections Commission (CEC) postponed the decision for the Party for Justice, Integrity and Unity (PJIU) MP Aqif Rakipi mandate.
The decision was taken during a meeting of CEC on Wednesday which was focused on a request submitted by Tirana Prosecution for two MPs mandate revocation. The CEC also decided to ask for additional information in relation to the alleged violation of decriminalization law by MP Rakipi.
According to the prosecution MP Rakipi failed to report in his decriminalization form the fact that he had been convicted in Italy on grounds of robbery while using the alias Skender Ejylbegaj.
Rakipi did not attend the CEC meeting and was represented by his lawyer Theodhori Sollaku.
Earlier CEC took the same decision even in relation to the Tirana Prosecution request for Socialist Movement for Integration (SMI) MP, Gledion Rehovica mandate revocation on the same grounds.
A two-day deadline has been given to the prosecution to submit the requested additional information.
