The Socialist Party of Albania has won a landslide in parliamentary elections held on June 23rd. As the lead party of the broad Alliance for a European Albania, their share of the vote increased from 40.85% to 57.7% and their seats from 65 to 84. The previous right-wing government led by the Democratic Party and their Alliance for Employment, Prosperity, and Integration, saw their votes fall from 40.18% to 39.4% and their seats from 68 to 56.

Members of the European Alliance included, in addition to the lead Socialist Party, the Socialist Movement for Integration, the Social Democracy Party of Albania, the Social Democratic Party of Albania, the youth-orientated social liberal/social democratic G99, the Green Party of Albania, and the Unity for Human Rights Party.

This was the first parliamentary elections since 2009 which were marred by allegations of widespread voter fraud by the right-wing government, and led to riots in 2011.
