Albania's Socialist Party heading towards a landslide victory
June 26, Triana: An exit poll by Italy's IPR Marketing has shown that Albania's ruling Socialist Party is cruising towards a victory on Sunday's parliamentary election with between 45 and 49 percent of votes, which could secure them a majority of the seats in parliament.
"The Socialist Party might have won more than 71 seats (in the 140-seat parliament), but this is still an opinion not a certainty," IPR Marketing's Antonio Noto said.
The two biggest parties are seeking a majority in a parliamentary election that follows a landmark agreement between the country's two biggest political parties to back efforts to secure European Union membership.
The race pits socialist Prime Minister Edi Rama against Lulzim Basha of the centre-right Democratic Party.
