Albanian parliament fails to pick president for 2nd day

The Albanian parliament has failed to elect the country’s new president for the second day in a row because no candidates were nominated.

The governing left-wing coalition didn’t put up any candidates Thursday, saying it is seeking a broader consensus that would include the body’s center-right opposition. The ruling coalition didn’t nominate a candidate on Wednesday, either. The opposition has been boycotting Parliament since February while demanding a caretaker Cabinet to take the country to a June 18 parliamentary election. It alleges the sitting government could manipulate the election.
