Basha sot i fali mandatin e katër Ramës

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

President Ilir Meta reacted for the first time yesterday regarding the request of the Socialist Party for his dismissal. In the 13-page documentation, sent to the Parliamentary Committee on Laws, Meta didn’t say anything new, except those he stated in press conferences, during, before and after the election campaign.

“For more than 2 years, the entire parliamentary activity of the Parliament, has tried to hit the activity and constitutional activity of the President of the Republic, which for a long time has been and remains the only legitimate constitutional institution and not captured by the party in power.
In these desperate efforts of this illegitimate Parliament, the latter has continued to be involved in fictitious processes, unsupported by the Constitution and laws, but only blindly moves politically oriented”- said in the documentation sent to the Law Commission.

According to Meta, this initiative of the one-party parliament is an abuse of legislative activity, and aims to divert attention from the demands of the President of the Republic, the opposition, and international organizations to uncover criminal acts committed by the state party to manipulate the electoral process held on April 25th.

But in the evidence gathered by the majority, it is possible that the president will end up in criminal prosecution. The majority has gathered 115 evidence, which will be used to ask the Parliament for Ilir Meta’s dismissal. There are 63 statements made by the President on media and social networks, as well as 52 news items published by the media, which refer to Meta’s harsh rhetoric.

Are well known the statements about amputations, statements that threatened police officers, judges and prosecutors, statements where the president incites violence, calls for war, statements calling on citizens to grab scythes and forks and many others. The President of the Republic may be dismissed for a serious violation of the Constitution and for committing a serious crime, according to the procedure provided in Article 90, point 2 and the notion of “serious crime”, includes in the first place the crime of treason against homeland.

The majority says that Meta has continuously violated the Constitution. The head of the Socialist Parliamentary Group, Taulant Balla, is convinced that the evidences are so stubborn and proves that Meta has violated the Constitution, so he should be fired.

If Meta is fired, SPAK will deal with him. Currently, Ilir Meta has immunity as President of the Republic. But if he is fired from his duty he is “stripped” of this privilege and the Socialists find it very easy to sue him in the SPAK, for calls for chaos and violence.

Calls for insurrection are punishable by law, and for this reason the judiciary comes into play at this point. The Criminal Code clearly states incitement to violence and calls for violence to overthrow the constitutional order. There are two criminal offenses. One envisages a fine of up to 3 years, and the other from 10-15 years in prison./CNA.al

Meta-Basha, the “martyrs” of April 25/They left aside the scythes and garden forks and started the war

The President of the Republic, Ilir Meta, could not detach himself from the politics of the day, even during the homages held in honor of the Martyrs of the Fatherland. From the Martyrs’ Cemetery, Meta has not given up his calls for freedom.

“This is the day to commit to do much more for Albanian citizens to enjoy the freedoms that belong to them in their homeland, for Albania to have the place it deserves in the EU, and especially for young people to have a future. Europeans in their country“- said Meta.

So Meta, like the leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, has a war in his head. A war they invented after being “martyred” on April 25. Ilir Meta’s SMI managed to get only four seats, out of 19 it had won in the last parliamentary elections.

The results showed that more than a failure, it was a bankruptcy of the SMI of Ilir Meta. In this failure, Meta attracted also the Democratic Party and Lulzim Basha, with the coalition that Monika Kryemadhi signed with them. “The drowned drowns you”-say a proverb.

And so it happened. The SMI, which had long begun to weaken and weaken with the mass departure of leaders, members, MPs, “dipped” deeper and deeper the DP, leaving it in the Opposition.

Meta can not swallow up the SMI collapse. So he comes out says that today more than ever we must commit to freedom. But Albania is not at war, it has simply held parliamentary elections, a normal procedure as in any other country in the world, where the SMI has come out with only four seats.

Albania held elections, which Meta, under the costume of the President of the Republic appreciated, despite calls for rebellion, cutting off hands and sharpening scythes and garden forks. Statements which were supported by Lulzim Basha and his people.

He has already set aside scythes and garden forks, and comes out and gives us lectures on freedom, while the majority has demanded his removal from the post of President, arguing that he has violated the Constitution, before, during and after the election campaign.

On the other hand, Basha cannot justify the loss and failure, and goes out saying that the war has just begun. Meanwhile, rumors within the DP are increasing about his removal from the leadership of the Democratic Party.

The pair of “martyrs” of April 25, Meta-Basha, are persistently looking to hold their chairs, while both have been humiliated, as they promised resignations in case of loss, and haven’t yet given them./CNA.al

Dita e Dëshmorëve të Atdheut/ Meta “vjedh” historianin

The majority has started the procedures for the dismissal of the President of the Republic Ilir Meta with the collection of 50 signatures of the deputies, which yesterday were handed over to the head of the parliament Gramoz Ruçi. According to the Socialists, the president has been involved in the election campaign, thus violating the Constitution. The president had to be impartial, and his positions had to be on the sides. But the majority says that he was not only involved in the election campaign, but called for war, murder and bloodshed.

Even, according to the Socialists, even behind the murder in Elbasan of Pjerin Xhuvani, stands Ilir Meta. The statement was made by the socialist MP Alket Hyseni. “The president has incited violence. But parliament will see if there are also serious crime circumstances. There was incitement to violence, and we got to the point where we had the loss of a human life.

Meta is responsible for supporting illegitimate structures such as the vote protection group, with people with dubious backgrounds, but also other people armed with weapons, that in Elbasan caused the killing of one person and the wounding of several others. Calls for incitement to violence constitute a criminal offense”-said Hyseni. So, in addition to seeing if the Constitution has been violated, will go further to see if Meta should be prosecuted, and the case will be transferred to the Prosecution. Exactly for the event of Elbasan, which happened on April 21, a week before the parliamentary elections.

The victim Pjerin Xhuvani was part of the party of Ilir Meta and Monika Kryemadhi in Elbasan and Tirana from 2009 until the summer of 2015. He was the chairman of the SMI in Elbasan until 2015, and the central figure of this party in this area.

In government with Edi Rama, Ilir Meta had entrusted Xhuvani with the management of the Regional Directorate of the Compulsory Health Insurance Fund in Tirana. Then he was fired by the SMI and joined the Socialist Party, until the day bullets were fired at him, allegedly coming from the gun of Gazment Bardhi’s bodyguard, Arbër Paplekaj, a former member of the special forces.

We recall that during the entire election campaign but also before, Meta has made scandalous statements in the media, talking about cutting hands, for the use of scythes and forks, and for gangs with police and judges and prosecutors./CNA.al
