While Jozefina Topalli has announced that she will announce on Wednesday her political movement, former Prime Minister Sali Berisha considers it wrong for her to leave the Democratic Party.
As he was invited to the show “Hard Talk”, Berisha said that with the current status, Topalli has to run as an MP in the DP lists. “I don’t want to enter in special names anymore. Because the DP has for eight years a new chairman.
And the new chairman has decided to choose his team. Of course, I have clear my statements about their removal from the list of 2017. But as I know with the current statute of the Democratic Party, Mrs. Jozefina Topalli had the right to run”-he said.
Meanwhile, when asked if he considers the departure of the former Speaker of Parliament a mistake of the current leader of the Democratic Party Lulzim Basha, Berisha stated:” Without any discussion. Not just that, but some of them. I have announced it several times”./ CNA.al

Former Democratic Party MP Jorida Tabaku, continues to make strong accusations against the government, regarding the incinerator concession in Albania.
Former MP Tabaku, has released today the report of the Supreme State Audit on the incinerator in Tirana, which she says raises the alarm for another criminal scheme, even more serious than the theft with the incinerator of Fier and Elbasan.
“A cold analysis of the Supreme State Audit, regarding the concession contract of the Tirana incinerator, given for 30 years to a company with unknown shareholders in tax havens, and the rest owned by Klodian Zoto, raises the alarm for another criminal scheme, that is even more serious than the theft with the incinerator is in Fier and Elbasan.
Albanians will pay an additional 104 million euros, just by indexing inflation and by not accurately calculating garbage volume. This means that the value of the operating contract for the Tirana incinerator will go to 300 million euros and not 223 million euros, as the Ministry of Finance cheats.
The report of the Supreme State Audit, states that the contract for the Tirana incinerator passes all the risk to the Albanian taxpayer. More specifically, if the incinerator company fails to provide the waste guaranteed in the contract, and it will be the Albanians who will pay for the incinerator.
SSA emphasizes that exceeding the amount of fertilizers, puts at risk the State Budget for payments, as well as increases the profits of the concessionaire indefinitely”- said Tabaku. She further stated that these higher payments, due to the higher amounts of waste, translate into dizzying profits for the concessionaire in the tax haven. It is this corrupt definition in the contract, against the public interest, that has led to the increase of payments for the incinerator from the state budget, from 7 million euros at the beginning, to 11 million euros.
“Supreme State Audit has discovered that in the costs of the incinerator in Tirana, is missing the voice of the expropriation of the private land on which it would be located. This occupies 40 per cent of the entire area of the project, with an expropriation value of 214.5 million Lek. But the audit shows that the cost was hidden and not included in the project.
The Ministry of Finance, headed by Arben Ahmetaj, has taken every action that favors the incinerator of Tirana against the public interest. In order to fill bank accounts in tax havens, the Ministry of Finance has bypassed the budget ceilings, which must be maintained by law, leading the money to the garbage mafia business without any restrictions.
What SSA constantly observes in the analysis of this concession, is that the Ministry of Finance has always turned a blind eye when it comes to inflated or hidden costs. According to Supreme State Audit, more than 61 million euros of costs presented in the feasibility study are unsubstantiated, leading to the artificial increase of the service fee.
This means that the price of 29 euros for each ton of waste, that pay today the citizens of Tirana, is a consequence of a corrupt contract, designed to steal millions of euros every year. From the garbage, scrap and energy that they will sell, the unknown owners of the Tirana incinerator have secured over 120 million euros from this contract a net profit, without any risk, covered by the taxes of the Albanians.
For the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecution, the case is very simple. The documents are in every state office. It takes a little goodwill to put justice in place, so that Albanian’s money doesn’t go to fiscal havens, but to create new jobs.
It is in the honor of SPAK to make transparency now, investigate without any delay and in complete independence the most flagrant corruption affair of the government and the outgoing prime minister”- said Jorida Tabaku./ CNA.al
Former Speaker of Parliament Jozefina Topalli, has revealed today that she will be engaged in politics again, after several years of hiatus. Topalli has indicated that he will join the “Movement for Change” party, while she said that the new project will be made public on Wednesday, October 28.
“I will not sit and watch. I was not passive even in the year of the 1997 riots, when some risked leaving orphan my children. I will not sit and watch either today. Nor am I impressed by any Enverist behavior! I hear the attacks of one side, and then from the other side, that for their chairs they are so nicely understood, and only remind me of the old-fashioned leaflets. I will tell my truths, with or without party. The truth is my Freedom. On Wednesday I will join a group called the Movement for Change”- she told Abc News.
Further, the former Speaker stressed:“It is not a Party. They are people who see sadly that the country is being emptied. They see this as a drama and want to make it their cause. I will support them. If there are other initiatives, other movements that aim at the good of the people and the country, I will support them again. But it is not a party. But being afraid of parties in pluralist, this surprises me and makes me think”.
We recall that Jozefina Topalli has not been active in politics since 2017, when the President of the New Republic Lulzim Basha removed her from the lists of deputies. She didn’t engage in any other political party, while she didn’t spare criticism on Basha in her appearances on media or social networks./CNA.al
“Nuk do rri të bëj sehir”/ Jozefina Topalli flet për angazhimin politik: Të mërkurën…
The DP should be the political force that should rejoice in the creation of a new opposition party which will collect votes that Basha can not get. In fact, in Luli Basha’s New Republic, there is famine.
The yesterday news that Jozefina Topalli will announce the Movement for Change, drove Luli Basha’s media crazy, which launched direct attacks on her.
This not is unknown and unheard before. Similarly, they attacked earlier Astrit Patozi, Majlinda Bregu, Myslym Murrizi, etc. etc. And they are also attacking today Jozefina Topalli.
Basha had to take these political figures and human resources to the DP, as if to show that he was ready to make concessions and move forward together to overthrow Rama. Instead, he uses portals of her brother-in-law, Desada Meta’s media to attack Topalli. With an unprecedented communist mentality, if you criticize ”Enver” and came out against the party line “you will be executed”, yesterday with bullets, today with writings against you in media.
But why exist so much fear and panic in DP?
Perhaps they know already, that Luli Basha will lose some seats in next year election, and then will start problems. There will be no joint government with Edi Rama. But even Lulzim Basha will not become prime minister. And this is the essential problem of Luli Basha.
He wants his post, but not power for Democrats. What sense does the fact that PD is happier with Monika Kryemadhi and the SMI band, or with parties that brought Rama to power in 2013, and that now he had cast them away?
Would it not be better for him to have a different approach to the former elite and senators, so that the conflict does not reach this point? Because Luli Basha just “washed up his mouth” with his insincere and totally disrespectful invites to them.
But how can you find political calm with a gang and thieves on the side, denying the most essential values of the resistance in the PD, which no begin with Luli’s power, but in 1997, or since the founding of this party.
Are the right-wing the parties that are being formed, or they are trying to make a difference to the politics of the PD, LSI, SP, and the current political caste?
Everyone has the right to give his contribute inside legal contours and constitutional spaces. Lulzim Basha, Ilir Meta or Edi Rama, don’t have in their hands the fate of every person, who thinks that something will change by creating a new political party. A new movement, or a new party, is simply one more alternative on the political scene, where citizens can choose.
Why the latter should remain with a cast that doesn’t change anything in this country, but simply divides power and distributes corruption. The problem in Albania is not the emergence of a new force. It is simply one more possibility, but the communist mentality of the DP leaders, and some media servile of Luli Basha. Until yesterday, they begged Topalli to return to the Democratic Party, they told Sali Berisha to leave from this or that list.
Until yesterday, they said that Luli Basha had to be kicked out of the DP. And when someone who has been insidiously and humiliatingly expelled from the elite of a political force, announces a new movement, starts swearing and attacks.
It is working on and will come up with a platform. But she cannot contribute to represent her values, because this not likes to Aurela, Erjon, Luli, or any supporter of Lulzim Basha. The opposition is not the property of Basha, nor of his family, and the dizzying wealth he has brought, using the logo and rostrum of the DP for fines, villas in luxury and tourist residences, or blackmail, as he is doing recently with Jozefina Topalli.
Time is running out, and the responsibility for the loss of the right and the opposition in Albania has only one name:Lulzim Basha. For his chair and his wife’s family, he is destroying not only the opposition but also the future of the country with his partnership with Edi Rama and Ilir Meta./ CNA.al
