The Albanian Football Federation (AFF) president, Armando Duka, who currently runs for a 5th mandate, publicly accused his rival Bashkim Fino of exploiting the political position to get the lead in this race.
According to Duka a number of government members are excercising pressure for vote's alienation.
"A high exponent of Socialist Party (SP) joined the race, politicizing the process. That's why a number of SP members support his candidacy for the position of AFF president. Why does the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Ditmir Bushati exercise pressure on electors in Shkodra by orientating their vote. Why does Durresi mayor Vangjush Dako exercise pressure?
Those are clear interventions by politics in this electoral process," said Duka.
