Facts and figures/How the SMI got the votes from the SP and DP

The Socialist Movement for Integration is a political force, born of the corruption of power, and grew with the corruption of power. A political force, created by the clash of Ilir Meta with Fatos Nano in 2004, for power and money, and which today has become the cancer of Albanian politics.

The facts and figures speak for themselves how Ilir Meta, a young man from Skrapar, without any inherited wealth, became a billionaire and today enjoys the luxury of his poker, in the SP government as prime minister, after in the government with the DP, and further with Edi Rama’s socialists bringing the Renaissance to power.

Ilir Meta started it in 2005 by bringing the Socialists into opposition. Then in 2009, he run in the election with the Socialist Alliance for Integration coalition, where the SMI received 73.000 votes, and in total coalition received 84.000 votes and 4 seats, where Ilir Meta himself was elected MP in Tirana.

The SMI enters the government with Sali Berisha, eroding from within the power of the former Prime Minister who had begun to undertake reforms, while the country was experiencing a strong economic development.

He takes over 20 percent of the power and on April 1, 2013, after a long dinner with eels, he entered into a coalition with Edi Rama. The 4-year rule with the SMI, would also be the “electoral hole” of the Democrats. Ilir Meta leads the SMI to 180.000 votes in 2013, and secures 16 seats from the electoral formula, increasing by 4 times, while increasing the votes of this party more than 2 times.

On the other hand, Berisha’s Democrats received only 530.000 votes, a decrease of almost 90.000 votes which seems to be reflected as an increase of the SMI. Meta was elected speaker of parliament and then president with Renaissance votes. In 2017, he appointed Petrit Vasili as chairman of SMI, but led himself the election campaign.

In the elections of 4 years ago, the SMI grows again, and again at the expense of the DP, which continued their contraction with almost 230.000 votes. Meta received 225.000 votes and 19 seats, an increase that no one expected.

But the Rama-Basha agreement maimed the leader of the New Republic, which caused an electoral catastrophe through clientelist lists by selling mandates of deputies. All three results in three pairs of elections show an increase in the SMI.

In two cases the SMI has been in power, in 2013 it was in government with the DP and had issued its tentacles everywhere. While in 2017 it went to the elections in power with the SP, as it had expanded its spaces in power with ministries or employment in the administration.

The real electoral weight of the SMI is that of the 2009 result, where it has 74.000 votes. The other increase comes from the fact that this force was perceived as the party that makes the majority, and brings to power one of the major parties. These facts have been shown by time, and the growth of the SMI came mainly at the expense of the DP, but also the SP.

Mainly to the DP, as this force in the last 2 elections has almost halved, while the SP has maintained a stability of votes, while the SMI has expanded further in the electorate. But within the SMI there is a left-wing electoral body which was initially shaped as the extreme left, as its communist face.

But then it moved further without having a clear political profile. But was clear the fact that the SMI wanted power, employment and money. The details and figures of the three elections clearly show that the SMI has expanded on the backs of the two main parties by eroding the power of the DP and SP, from which have taken away the electorate mainly for power interests and employment, that comes not only from poverty but also bargaining of business and vote buying./CNA.al

Editorial/ Does Lulzim Basha represent the change?

Publikuar

-

Nga

The electoral campaign of April 25 is revealing for the first time in Albania a different tactic. The campaign strategists at the Democratic Party, have chosen not to play hard with the phrase “Lulzim Basha as Prime Minister”, but with other phrases such as “Do you want change?”, “We need change” etc., sentences that seek the removal of Edi Rama from power, but who hide the name of Basha.

This strategy to use the change as a candidate for Prime Minister and not Lulzim Basha, has come after a long analysis and polls, that were done for the name of Luli Basha in public opinion. The Israelites who have stood by him for more than 1 year and a half read the situation very clearly:Lulzim Basha is not popular in public opinion.

He didn’t inspire confidence, he didn’t say anything about Albanians. For the latter it was just a mannequin, a person often labeled as a public deceiver. The campaign strategists chose to play with the term “change”, but also to soften the scandalous image and avoid Luli’s unstoppable mistakes.

So they prepared everything for him, and the campaign seems to be moving in that direction, that is in the demand for a change of government. In fact, it turns out that most Albanians in every poll demand change, but the part of those who are ready to vote for Luli Basha is very small in relation to what is required.

The DP clearly has a strategy with change as a motto, and after this request it gives us Lulzim Basha as an offer. But does Lulzim Basha represent the change? This is a question that does’nt need a long answer. It is enough to recall that Lulzim Basha was 3 times minister, and then mayor of Tirana and chairman of the Democratic Party.

The last 16 years in Tirana, and all of them in power. He returned to Tirana in 2005, after 12 years of emigration to the Netherlands, where it spent more than a decade to complete a school that requires only 5 years, and this is a fact.

He became Minister of Transport, with the investment scandal in “Nation Road”, and for an abuse of 300 million euros, he was fired. So two years in that post, he couldn’t do anything. It took his followers as a minister, to move forward the project in question.
He was later appointed Foreign Minister, claiming that he opened the doors of Europe to us, but in fact signed an agreement with Greece where he forgave the sea of Albanians.

So he forgave the maritime space of Albania, almost consuming the accusation of national treason. He was then appointed to the post of Minister of Interior, where he was the main person responsible for January 21, when 4 people were killed on the boulevard, after a violent protest by the Socialists.

Former Prime Minister Sali Berisha took Lulzim Basha under his protection. But imagine a little:we had an Interior Minister, who hid like a coward and couldn’t manage a day of protests in Tirana. As the mayor of Tirana, Luli’s long sleep is already well-known and there is no need for many arguments.

We go to his election as chairman of the DP. A lot can be said here, but it is enough to emphasize a few details. Basha was elected chairman of the Democratic Party in 2013 through a manipulated process.

He couldn’t lead the party and expand local structures, causing divisions at the base, and disrespecting the party statute and selected organs. The local elections were shamefully lost, and there was no reflection, no analysis.

He then invited Ilir Meta for cooperation, but finally made an agreement with Edi Rama and lost the elections of 2017. He was re-elected chairman of the Democratic Party, manipulating the voting result in the formal race against Eduard Selami.
There were completely formal analyzes, the division in the DP deepens, as Basha declared “enemies” those he himself expelled. Then he started the protests after the burning of the mandates of the deputies. Total failure, forgave the local government at the opponent’s table, and boycotted the local elections.

After the earthquake in November 2019, he came out with a new mask, softer and most “western”, and promises change in the DP. Candidate proposals from the base, vetting, etc. But he simply further divided the DP, with a vote that ousted all his favorite candidates.

But all those who were disqualified from the base, were put back on the list, some even paid for the mandate of the deputy.

The decisions of the vetting commission were not implemented. Sale of mandates again in Korça, Durrës, VLorë and Fier. A campaign, where change has been demanded for several weeks, where citizens are violently called to rallies in times of pandemics, an irresponsibility at extreme levels.

And in case anyone thinks that the change is Lulzim Basha let reread the above facts. Those who bring Edi Rama as an argument, must learn that he is in power after he brought Ilir Meta as a change, kept by Lulzim Basha as a change, and now they want to come themselves as a change. None of these three is the change, Lulzim Basha surely not./CNA.al

Electoral bargains/ SMI warns his defeat in the April 25 elections

Nga

The Socialist Movement for Integration is getting ready to justify losing in the April 25 elections. In conditions when they risk being left only with headquarters but without supporters, simply in buildings with the logo, to justify the loss on April 26, they are already preparing the script.

When we are 10 days away from the parliamentary elections of April 25, SMI exponents have started to denounce what they call electoral bargains. It is strange and ironic to hear this from the SMI, as it is the only political force that no one trusts regarding the elections.

The SMI is behaving every day according to the motto “The thief calls catch the thief!”. But, the absurdity is that the SMI is a thief of votes with evidence, while for those for whom it accuses and qualifies as thieves, there is no evidence but only words.

Today, Endrit Braimllari, the SMI candidate for the Korça Region, has made accusations in a statement to the media against the Minister of Defense Niko Peleshi for election bargaining, together with some of his directors. He has reported Peleshi to SPAK, for the criminal offense “Abuse of duty”, along with several other officials. In the criminal report sent to SPAK, there is no mention of a single piece of evidence, but only empty words.

According to the SMI, now that we are in a time of campaigning, and on the eve of elections,
the state shouldn’t work, shouldn’t invest, rather SPAK should intervene and stop them. And this scandal occurs at a time when President of the Republic Ilir Meta has abandoned his institutional duty, and is appearing as the head of the SMI, campaigning and giving warnings and threats that affect even the diplomatic corps in Albania.

In these circumstances, the SMI, Braimllari should sue Ilir Meta in SPAK, for whom it is not difficult to find evidence that incriminates him. But, knowing that April 26 will find them losers, Monika Kryemadhi who is known as the formal chairwoman of the SMI, is following the example of Lulzim Basha, making empty lawsuits against various officials, in order to have something to justify on April 26. Below we bring the report of the SMI, where there is no single evidence, filed today in SPAK./CNA.al

“The thief shouts catch the thief”! / The SMI scandals with vote theft

The Socialist Movement for Integration, a political party known for its vote theft, is surprising public opinion by denouncing vote theft. And this is exactly what the SMI does, a party that is considered a symbol of envelope and crime, and that today pretends to be a defender of the Albanian vote.

“The wolf changes his hair, but doesn’t forget his habit” says a famous proverb. This aphorism suits the SMI, which today is still run by the same “golf”, which was previously caught stealing votes.

Today, the same man brings out his “puppets” to denounce alleged electoral crimes and opens a portal on the official website of the Presidency to denounce so-called electoral crimes. Moreover, he threatens to cut off the hands of those who will steal the votes on April 25, while a person close to him is using the money of his wife’s company, previously denounced by the leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, for buy not only votes, but also cars for gangsters.

Just a few days ago, the police arrested an SMI leader in Puka, with over 5 million Lek inside his car, and with a list of 28 names, accompanied by a demonstration ballot to vote for the SMI. Vasil Shabani was arrested by the police, while the chairman of the SMI in Puka, D.S, is under investigation.

Meanwhile, from the official chairwoman of the SMI, Monika Kryemadhi didn’t make any reaction. But the SMI’s deeds and scandals with vote theft are early. We recall the scandals of 2017. In his parliamentary elections the year, after denouncing vote theft by PJIU leader Shpëtim Idrizi, the CEC opened 64 ballot boxes and after the recount, it turned out that the SMI had stolen more votes from all political parties.

In the same election, a day before the polls, SMI representatives were apprehended by police with large sums of money in the car and a voter list. Police reported the name of I.B. of the SMI, who was caught in flagrancy the Mesi Bridge in Shkodra.

From Shkodra, bargains with votes from the SMI were discovered in Korça, again in the 2017 elections. The police caught in flagrancy a group of young people distributing money in exchange for votes, on the voting day of June 25, 2017.

We recall that the chairman of the group of SMI councilors in the Municipal Council of Korça, P.M was accompanied in the police station. The latter, as reported by the media, was arrested in 2013 for buying votes for the SMI.

On the same day of the June 25, 2017, elections, police cracked down on another SMI group, which was distributing money and food in exchange for votes. Bargaining with votes in 2017, held by the SMI, was also found in Delvina, where again a group was caught distributing money in exchange for votes.

The geography of selling and buying votes from the SMI in the 2017 elections has extended to Berat, where were included several leaders of the SMI. There are many, many other cases where the SMI has been accused of vote theft. So, the only exclusivity of the SMI is the sale and purchase of votes. If shame and electoral crime had a form, the symbol would be SMI./CNA.al
