Albania Muslims Take Elections to Court Tirana

Muslims praying in Albania’s capital, Tirana.A group of imams have filed a civil court suit against the head of the Albanian Muslim Community Selim Muca contesting election procedures that they say will inevitably lead to his reelection.

Muca is standing for reelection, while no other rival has stepped forward. The elections are expected to be held at the next meeting of the community's general council in the city of Kavaja on March 21. The imams contest as irregular the absence of other candidates apart from Muca.
