Ruling Socialist Party Activist Killed ahead of Albanian Elections

One man was killed and four people were wounded in Elbasan on Wednesday, four days ahead of the April 25 general elections in Albania.

Pjerin Xhuvani, reportedly a Socialist Party activist, was shot by Arber Papleka, reportedly an opposition activist, who later surrendered himself to the police.

One of those wounded is a police officer who was attempting to prevent the crime, police announced.

Local media reported of fire exchange between the two groups, presumably over arguments related to vote-buying.

An opposition activist was also shot and wounded this week inside an electoral campaign office in Kavaje.
