The President of the “New Republic”, Lulzim Basha, seems to have given a final hand to the lists of candidates for deputies. He has opened a formal competition, where the base proposes names and candidates fill out forms.
But on the other hand, the list is almost configured with the names that were part of the list of 2017, and the new names that CNA.al reported a few days ago. These lists may also undergo changes, as Lulzim Basha often changes many things at the last minute, not only for his political interests, but also for his family’s.
In 2017, he was accused of selling seats to MPs. Basha’s list is getting almost ready, not only with the names delegated to the base, but also with the characters who have kept the political weight in these years, where Luli has set up his team that for good or bad, today has basic support and is proposed everywhere, with or without orders.
There are at least 24 names running for re-election from the former parliamentary group, but this does not include allies. In 2017, Basha was able to secure only 42 seats together with the smaller parties. Below is a list of 24 names that Basha is expected to re-run, but also circulating.
In total with these 24 names, with 21 new names, and some allies within the list, Lulzim Basha has configured approximately 50 names, that represents over 35 per cent of the list and the safe and winning part. Surprises are expected to be small, with some names that Basha, although less than the fingers of one hand, will seek to sell as new feeds.
CNA.al reported a few days ago a list of 21 names, but they are not new feeds, because each of them with the arrival of Basha as chairman of the DP, and with the construction of the “New Republic”, sometimes appear and sometimes disappear, according to the appetite of the chairman.
The following list brings the names that stand in the running, from those who were part of the parliamentary group and the 2017 lists. In the district of Berat, Astrit Veliaj is expected to be again part of the list, who may have another name in front of him as a new feed.
In Dibër, the name that is being reconfigured is Dhurata Çupi, while Xhemal Gjunkshi is in question. Durrës has some moves, Oerd Bylykbashi remains on the list, but Florjon Mima and Edi Paloka move. Mima in Tirana and Paloka in Shkodra. Gent Strazimiri is added in this district.
In Elbasan, Edmond Spaho is expected to move, possibly in Tirana or Korça. Luciano Boçi and Endri Hasa, Taulant Zeneli or Fitim Zekthi are the names that Basha is re-running in this region from the 2017 list. Fier is expected to have again as candidate Enkelejd Alibeaj and Luan Baçi.
A movement of Genc Pollo in Korça or Gjirokastra, changes the configuration of this region. In Korça, Ervin Salianji (depending on the court decision), but also Andrea Mano are expected to run again. Edmond Spaho or Genc Pollo, can be added as part of this county.
Flamur Noka leaves from Kukës, but Isuf Cela remains. Lezha from the previous list has Lindita Metaliaj. Edi Paloka, who is leaving Durrës, is expected to go to Shkodra.
The list is followed by Izmira Ulqinaku and Bardh Spahia. In Tirana, the list seems quite crowded and there are many names that will focus on this region, including young people. From Lulzim Basha to Sali Berisha, Grida Duma, Jorida Tabaku, Aldo Bumci, Oriola Pampuri, Flamur Noka, Florion Mima or Albana Vokshi, are some reconfirmed names. In Vlora is confirmed the name of Agron Shehaj. /CNA.al
