Albania's government reached an agreement with the main opposition parties on 18 May 2017 to solve the political crisis affecting the country for months.
The agreement includes an arrangement by which the opposition joins the government and takes over a set of ministries until the parliamentary election takes places. This was re-scheduled to be held on 25 June with the participation of the opposition parties.
It also comprises an agreement for the end a parliamentary boycott and the adoption of a judicial reform to implement rules which are seen as necessary to advance Albania's EU accession negotiations.
The European Union welcomed the agreement.
