The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, has found several ways to justify the loss and failure in the parliamentary elections on April 25. He first issued a statement to the media praising the election process.
Meanwhile, 2 days later, he started talking about election manipulation through the sale and purchase of votes, saying that “the war has just started”. We heard him declare in the media that he doesn’t accept the result of the elections, while on the other hand he gathered the new parliamentary group, telling them that he knew their mandates.
So, he either accepts or doesn’t recognize the April 25 elections, thus putting the Democrats in chaos, to whom he had promised that he would not leave them in opposition. But in fact he was guaranteed another 4 years of opposition. In these conditions, at the time when he had to give an account and leave the leadership of the Democratic Party, he found an inexperienced lawyer outside the blue headquarters, like Marash Logu, to charge him with some files, where it is alleged that there is evidence of electoral manipulation, sending them to the Appeals and Sanctions Commission.
And he did this knowing very well that whatever is in those files, the result is not reversed and its loss is not justified. After leading his “war” to this point, he has already started a tour of visits to various regions. Meanwhile, in the Democratic Party have started resignations, as previously reported by CNA.al, although some of them are trying to be kept secret.
The Organizational Secretary of the Democratic Party, Sahit Dollapi, submitted his resignation a week ago. Some local DP leaders have also resigned. But they have been asked to stay in office until the denunciations are completed, but also until the re-election of the chairman of the DP.
But instead of resigning, Basha has chosen to roam from city to city as a tourist, but with over a series of losses on his shoulder. The tour started with Durrës on Monday evening, and today he visits Lezha and so on. So from city to city to justify the loss, rather than doing the analysis of the causes that led to the next loss.
He currently holds out hope in the files of lawyer Logu, but if he loses and after those complaints, what will be the next “war” of Lulzim Basha? He left the Democrats in opposition for another 4 years, taking with the Allies only 59 seats across the country.
And now Basha starts the losing tour through Albania as if nothing had happened, as he shocked everyone when on April 27 he spoke about battles and war, while the results pushed him to lose. He was justified with a fake smile, that allegedly PD had won, as there is an increase compared to 2017, forgetting that he has been in opposition for 8 years, and something will have done.
The loss of the April 25 elections, is the third defeat in a row for the DP. Are these successive losses, which have rushed voices from inside and outside the DP that demand the removal of Basha from the leadership of the party. But it seems that until July, when the elections will be held within the DP, Basha will try to justify the loss, by starting the tour through the regions. /CNA.al
