'Albania's president claimed his country avoided a plot by George Soros to destabilised the country.
Ilir Meta claimed the billionaire was behind a 'conspiracy' to seize control of the state be interfering in local elections at the weekend.
The Albanian president accused the investor and philanthropist of being responsible for a political scheme after the main opposition parties refused to take part in the country's local elections on Sunday.
Meta's former party, the Socialist Movement for Integration, was also one of the parties that did not take part in the vote, according to regional newspaper Balkan Insight.
The opposition threatened to disrupt the poll on Sunday, but did not do so, leaving Meta to declare that 'Albanians didn't fall prey to the provocations'.
He had tried to cancel the elections, saying they would be undemocratic without the participation of Albania's opposition, which boycotted the vote.
Stating that the municipal elections were a 'farce', Meta urged new polls to resolve the country's political crisis.
The opposition has claimed that the low turnout - 21.6 per cent - showed that Sunday's elections were unconstitutional and illegal.
Without offering any evidence, Meta described the alleged plot as 'a conspiracy aimed at totally capturing the state', claiming Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban warned him about Soros in 2000.
But Prime Minister Edi Rama of the ruling Socialist Party ordered the elections for mayors and local council members held Sunday, and his party is expected to receive the most votes by a significant margin.'
