Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who along with Zoran Zaev was the main loser at the European Council, ruled out allowing early general elections following his failure to open EU accession talks.
Like in Macedonia, politicians in Albania are also calling on Rama to resign and allow early elections. But yesterday Rama ruled out this option.

Not only we won’t go to early elections, we will carry on working like before. On October 19th the sun will rise again. Albania has no need to go to early elections, because the country did all it had to do for this process. If early elections could resolve the problem between France and Germany I would seriously consider them, Rama said.
