Ilir Meta’s empire has begun to crumble. The Socialist Movement for Integration, which
rose from well-known names, and managed to have a large electoral support under Meta, emerging as the third force, but also played the role of King Maker in forming governments, is now touching the bottom under the leadership of Monika Kryemadhi.
The DP-SP pact of May 17, 2017, was the first blow dealt to the party of the President of the Republic, which as a secret agreement aimed at destroying the SMI. Even today, Rama-Basha have started the behind-the-scenes efforts to take out of the game the “empire” of Meta and Kryemadh in the elections of April 25, 2021.
This was also acknowledged by the number two of the Socialist Party, Taulant Balla, who said that they had agreed with Lulzim Basha to take Meta’s party for scrap. “The SMI is in a process of disintegration. Their political figures have sought to get closer to the Socialist Party. What is happening, is that we agreed with Lulzim Basha, he in 2017, and we now, to take the SMI for scrap. We are all working together for this”- said Balla.
But how is the SMI being destroyed under the leadership of Monika Kryemadhi? It is clear that after the departure of Ilir Meta from the SMI, the deputies and councilors are no longer obeying Kryemadhi and have officially started leaving the party.
The departure of Robert Bitri, Spartak Braho, Lefter Koka, Nasip Naço, Gledion Rehovica or even the former director of the port of Durrës and the former director of Civil Aviation, Aleksandër Lipivani, have brought the contraction of the president’s party.
But among those who left and joined the SP, are also municipal councilors. These actions show that the dissolution of the SMI has officially begun. For some time, Monika’s party has been gripped by an internal crisis. Although she has avoided this fact, denying in public, this crisis is becoming more visible.
But the fear of the collapse of the Meta-Kryemadhi empire, has also led to the launch of blackmail with video-eavesdropping on those who left. But although until yesterday they were part of the SMI, today Meta is accusing the departed as incriminated persons, and that according to him with their departure the party has been cleansed.
The head of state chooses not to call even collaborators, those who have left the political force he founded, among them Nasip Naço. Fear of overthrowing the SMI has been accompanied by unconstitutional behavior by the president.
Meta has completely stripped off the president’s suit, and launched the campaign for the SMI, holding a series of meetings. This implies that Meta himself cannot trust the party of his wife Monica, as he is seeing that the empire he set up himself, is collapsing before his eyes.
Now even the polls in the media near the opposition, reveal a SMI weaker than ever. This shows that the support of citizens to the party of Meta and Monika has fallen so much, that even their televisions are not able to propagate SMI as a “winner”./CNA.al
