Open Data Albania (ODA) has researched the election of mayors in the last four elections. The data were obtained from the electronic newsletters or manuals of the Central Election Commission. This research article contains statistical as well as specific information on the mayoral winners in the local elections of 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2011. In the Republic of Albania there are 65 municipalities on the basis of the territorial administrative division under the relevant law.

According to the research analysis of Open Data Albania, candidates of leftwing political parties or coalitions led by the Socialist Party won, respectively: in the 2000 local government elections, 50 seats or 78 per cent of the municipalities in the Republic of Albania; in the 2003 local government elections, 37 seats or 57 per cent; in the 2007 local government elections, 26 seats or 40 per cent; and in the 2011 local government elections, 37 seats or 57 per cent.

According to ODA research analysis, candidates of the right-wing political parties or coalitions led by the Democratic Party won, respectively: in the 2000 local government elections 14 seats or 21.5 per cent; in the 2003 local government elections, 25 seats or 35.5 per cent; in the 2007 local government elections they won 36 municipalities or 55 per cent; and in the 2011 local government elections, 28 municipalities or 43 per cent.

Independent candidates or candidates of the Human Rights Union Party (HRUP), when that party ran alone without a coalition with other political formations, are not classified as belonging to a political direction.

The electoral processes for the 2000 and 2011 local government elections were characterized by two special elements. In 2000 the Democratic Party and its allies withdrew from running in the second round run-off, considering the counting process of the first round run-offs as irregular. This led to the result of only 14 winners as mayors from the right, those being the seats won in the first round of elections.

In the 2011 local government elections, the political parties were organized in mixed coalitions in terms of political directions. Thus, the Socialist Movement for Integration, the Democratic Alliance and the Environmental Agrarian Party run under the coalition Alliance for the Citizen led by the right-wing DP, while in the other local government elections they had previously run as or with left-wing parties. The same phenomenon was observed in the other coalition, the Alliance for the Future led by the SP, with which the Christian Democrat Party was aligned, whilst in previous elections for local government, it been part of right-wing coalitions.
