The development of the democratic processes in a society is closely related to the functioning of the internal democracy of the political parties. The aim of this initiative is to observe and evaluate the democratic processes within the three main Albanian parties.
CDI has identified and selected the appropriate indicators that show the democracy level within the parties such as: correct elections, knowledge and implementation of the party’s Statute, membership participation in the decision-making, transparency, funding, representation of different groups, etc. A questionnaire has been prepared based on these indicators, which will serve as a base for carrying out 300 interviews with members of the main parties in all the regions of Albania. The interviewed members are divided based on the specific weight of each party in the respective region, and 70 % of them belong to the basis and 30 % to leading structures.
The results of these interviews will be analyzed, presented to partners and the final study will be presented to the public.
