 Albania is observing an election silence Saturday as a result of the end of campaigns required one day ahead of parliamentary elections, Xinhua Reported.
Some 18 political parties and groups will be running for 140 seats in the Balkan country's parliament during the June 25 elections after 30 days of campaigns.
