    Albania's ruling Socialist party has won general elections with an outright majority, allowing it to form a government without coalition partners.

    It is the country's first election since the fall of communism to grant a single party full power in parliament.

    But a lot of work still needs to be done before the party can deliver on promises to become part of the European Union.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Tirana.
