President Sali Berisha refused Tuesday to shorten the polling hours for this weekend's national elections, opening the door to fraud in the after-dark vote count, election officials said. Berisha turned aside pleas from Albania's senior election officials and international organizations to order polls closed at 6 or 7 p.m. instead of the scheduled 9 p.m., according to a letter from the president's office delivered to the Central Election Commission.

Opposition parties accused the ruling Democrats of engineering widespread election irregularities Sunday and pulled out of parliamentary voting. The move by at least five parties--including all the major ones--was a blow to hopes that Albania could make a relatively smooth transition to democracy after decades under one of the world's harshest Communist dictatorships. The Socialist Party, successor to Albania's Communists, led four other parties in pulling out of the nationwide balloting.
