EU membership would be an event with a great impact on Albanian society, on the functioning of institutions, on the economic economy and on the well-being of the people, which being a great driving force would give a variety of positive results. The desire to have the rule of law, the rule of law, the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms, the economy, the state and well-being, which are seen as distinct elements for the member states of the European Union, are a strong driving force, as a way out this EU membership for the realization of the essential factors. They should aim for membership in the European Union, we should align their domestic legislation with the legislation of the European Union and implement it effectively. The obligation of the Republic of Albania for the approximation of its legislation with the EU acquis derives from the Stabilization and Association Agreement EU - Albania, which was signed on 12 June 2006 and entered into force on 1 April 2009. Article 70 of the SAA - For Albania, it would like to ensure that its existing laws and future legislation gradually go hand in hand with the EU acquis. This approximation started on the date of signing the SAA and will be gradually extended to all elements of the EU acquis required by this Agreement within a transitional period of up to 10 years, divided into two phases. During the first phase of the transitional period (which has manifested itself with the entry into force of the SAA) the approximation focused on the essential elements of the Internal Market acquis, during the second phases of Albania, to become a remaining part of the acquis.
