The chairman of the extra-parliamentary opposition, Lulzim Basha, was yesterday invited to the show “Opinion” in front of a panel of journalists, where for 2 hours he tried to explain the preparations of the opposition 3 months before the elections. In fact, an opposition leader 3 months before the elections, has high expectations, as his opponent has been in power for 8 years. But as always Lulzim Basha didn’t disappoint this time either.
Journalists asked him where he would run, and he didn’t tell. Journalists asked him what the next government would be, so who would be the people next to him, and he didn’t mention any name. He continued to repeat that this issue belong to his experts. Journalists asked him who would be the candidates for MPs in some constituencies, but he refused to answer.
They asked him when the coalition would be configured, and with how many lists the opposition would enter the elections, again he didn’t give a concrete answer, but mentioned 3 variants, emphasizing that he leaves this again in the hands of experts. So in 2 hours he said nothing. Yesterday’s show was probably one of Basha’s weakest public appearances, also for the fact that closer are the elections, and higher the expectations and attention to him, the more he is disappointing in what he says.
And Luli Basha doesn’t tell or say anything, because he knows that he will lie, or said stupid things, so he has chosen to avoid answers by saying nothing. Yesterday, Basha said only one sentence, from the beginning to the end of the show:I am the prime minister, I will become the prime minister.
In fact, he cannot decide on this wish. So he must understand that if the Democrats and the Albanians don’t want him, he can’t be neither an opposition leader nor a prime minister. So, it is not Lulzim Basha who signs, seals and decides what will be done, and what will be resolved.
It’s not enough to say I love this! Lulzim Basha cannot decide on the future, but it is the Albanians. And for that to happen, they need to see a determined leader, a man with program and strategy, with real names and allies.
Lulzim Basha is again part of the gang of thieves of Monika Kryemadhi, with some corrupt and incompetent allies, with a weak Democratic Party like never before. He leads a divided opposition, and continues to see his dream of becoming prime minister tomorrow. Everyone understands that Lulzim Basha has a problem. He wants to become prime minister, while the Albanians have another problem:they want to vote for a man capable of governing differently from Edi Rama, and to have a different vision.
Yesterday, Lulzim Basha didn’t show that he will govern differently from Rama, nor will he have a different vision, nor is he a man capable of governing Albania. He only said that he had a dream that he wanted to become prime minister. Once Martin Luther King delivered a speech “I have a dream”, one of the most brilliant speeches in the history of post-World War II. While Lulzim Basha’s discourse, if it were to be read as such, was “I have a dream, I want to become prime minister!”. Yesterday on the show “Opinion”, Lulzim Basha didn’t say anything!/CNA.al
