The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, has abandoned all the causes that have started by him. He has failed to bring them to an end, and now speaks again shamefully of further engagements, instead of resigning as DP leader.
It is not always the fault of those who win, his opponents or rivals in the party, when Basha himself has shown that he has no capacity to send to the end the causes. For this we will not go far back in time. But we will start from February 2019, the time when he handed over the mandates of the deputies.
After this decision, Basha said that the parliament in which they participated before the burning of mandates “came out of the votes of crime and the mafia in the rigged elections of June 25, 2017”. Backed by allies, Basha called for a transitional government, ready to take all necessary steps to guarantee free and fair elections.
The leader of the Democratic Party stated that by burning the mandates he would overthrow the government, but in fact overthrew himself and the opposition. Because the handing over of mandates didn’t help the DP and the opposition to change their approach to their opposition struggle, they even went out of the game as opposition, as a new parliamentary opposition was formed in Parliament.
After handing over the mandates, Lulzim Basha started the protests with the motto “Edi Rama must leave. Enough is enough!”. Basha said at the time, that the opposition would lead a civil, peaceful and democratic battle to restore legitimacy and democracy in Albania.
The protests started in Tirana, and moved to other cities. A total of 12 protests were organized, in each of which Basha went later than the scheduled time, and after thickening his voice and talking about the overthrow of Prime Minister Edi Rama, he closed it by singing the anthem, becoming the object of memes and ridicule on the Internet.
So even the protests didn’t serve him for anything. Basha abandoned them and the Democrats, to find another excuse for his failure. In these conditions, it was decided to hold local elections on June 30, 2019, while Basha hoped to overthrow the Rama government.
Although the election date was set, the Democratic Party leader said there would be no elections on June 30, as they would be postponed.
But the elections took place, in general they were calm, and Basha went out of the political system even in the local government. Basha again failed to keep his promises. Another cause has already begun, which is expected to have the fate of other causes, as the latter is the most abstract of all, as it speaks of war and battle, while coming from successive losses.
Basha praised the June 25 election process. Then he came out and said that there is evidence of election manipulation. And what he calls evidence, he left in the hands of a master student like Marash Logu, to defend the DP in KAS. This shows that Basha knows that the result doesn’t change anymore, but he is making every effort to justify himself, while the voices demanding his removal are increasing, both inside and outside the DP.
While in the Democratic Party have started resignations, starting from the people closest to him, Basha has started touring in the regions, describing it as a battle. He also tries to manipulate the tour, by organizing meetings with his close supporters with registration, in order to then release to the public only the parts that don’t affect him. So even the cause that he calls war or battle is failed, beyond any action that he does./CNA.al
