Albania to register population on ethnic, religious grounds

Albania said it will register the population on ethnic and religious grounds for the first time.

Genc Pollo, Minister of State, said, that this registration will begin in 2011 after more than a year.

However, Albanians fear that the new census system will affect the number of Muslims, dividing them into sects.

Registration of the population on ethnic and religious grounds has been also rejected by politicians and academics, because Greek government could abuse it, offering many poor Albanians money for leaving their nationality.

Greece claims that tens of thousands of Greeks live in south of Albania while the Albanian authorities say the number is smaller.
