Thoma Gëllçi uses ART for favors/ His term has expired, but he refuses to leave office

Albanian Radio Television (ART) is a public institution, maintained by citizens’ taxes.

But on the other hand this institution is being treated as a private property. It is enough to have the right political connections, and you can abuse, break the law, and not ask about institutions and anyone.

This is the case of Thoma Gëllçi, the director with an expired mandate, who is not leaving the office of ART. Gëllçi’s mandate expired on May 6, 2021, and the Albanian Parliament notified the Board of Directors of ART and announced the vacancy.

According to this procedure, Gëllçi had to leave the office, and then enter the race, in case he wants that post at all costs. In these circumstances, what is currently happening on ART is ridiculous. Gëllçi has taken the ART office “hostage”, with the justification that he is staying there in implementation of the law.

But only he knows which law he is enforcing. Gëllçi didn’t respond the question raised yesterday by Apparently Mr.Gëllçi is an American citizen who found America in Albania. But, with a difference that in America, if your term ends and you go anyway to the office, they kick you out.


While in Albania you can stay if you are a friend of the Prime Minister’s brother. In Albania, you can stay in the position you have, even if you have legal handicaps, while a journalist, citizen or intellectual would hand over the keys of the office and go out, to enter again in the race.

After all, that office and those keys do not belong to the director of ART, as he is a public institution. ART is a property of Albanian citizens, and not the private property of Thoma Gëllçi who came from America. The fact that Thoma Gëllçi doesn’t leave the office, shows another detail of how a public institution is being held hostage to run again.

And to achieve his goal he is standing in the office. There is no big change from the chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, who loses and doesn’t leave the office, and is seeking re-election as acting chairman.

He deceives by saying that he doesn’t leave the mandate to anyone, since the mandate of the deputy director of ART has ended as well and other lies. Although his term has expired, Thoma Gëllçi is afraid that he may lose the race, so he is staying in the office to make favors, to intimidate the board members, as some were elected by Gëllçi himself, with the support of the socialist deputy Musa Ulqini.

Those board members were also specially elected as part of the ART structure from Gëllçi and Ulqini, to be support for the director at the time he was re-elected. Gëllçi is now in office simply and only to be re-elected and for no other reason.

The case of Thoma Gëllçi is the same as that of Bujar Leskaj, at the time when he was in charge of the Supreme State Audit and his mandate expired. But unlike Gëllçi, Leskaj handed over the keys, left the office and left. After several months at the request of President Ilir Meta, he was asked to return to office until the new chairman is elected.

Because the head of KLSH is elected by the Assembly, and the latter didn’t have at that moment the necessary majority to elect the new head of SSA, who today is Arben Shehu. Even in the ART case, could be followed such practice, but Thoma Gëllçi doesn’t leave the office. He doesn’t ask about institutions and laws, but awaits re-election, using all the instruments offered by the post of head of ART./

Ilir Meta, 100 million dollars of wealth in England?/The details that raise doubts




In 2016, investigative journalist Artan Hoxha stated that English journalists had followed in the footsteps of an Albanian company registered in London, which served as a cover for a very powerful albanian politician.

According to Hoxha, the same politician, there owns 51 property titles worth 70 million pounds, which have been invested in area A of London. And these properties are named after an Albanian citizen from a district in northern Albania.

All this wealth, according to journalist Hoxha, was preserved through the gold exchange in the years 2002-2003, and the British found that the amount of gold came from Albania. Hoxha didn’t mention any politician name. But immediately in the media, was mentioned the name of Ilir Meta, the current president who was bent for such a fortune in London, of 70 million pounds or 100 million dollars. In fact, Meta’s connection to this property was made after former Prime Minister Sali Berisha had issued accusations against him in connection with the robbery of the State Treasury. 280 kg of gold were stolen from the State Treasury after the events of 1997.

According to Berisha, Ilir Meta celebrated the New Year 1999 with the stolen gold. “In December 1999 you celebrated the New Year by stealing the treasure of Albanians”- Berisha declared for Ilir Meta in July 2000. Since the scandal was first denounced in the media in early 2000, and until July in 2009, when he joined him in government, Berisha called Meta “Golden Ilir”. Meanwhile, Meta has repeatedly denied these accusations.

Transactions in London

But there is another detail that connects the president with this great wealth in London. These are transactions that have taken place in London to cover tuition fees for children. All three children of Ilir Meta were educated in Great Britain.

In 2017, the Meta family stated that they paid 140.000 pounds for their education. While in 2018 a bank account has been declared of about 12.000 pounds, again for school expenses. The president and his wife have spent staggering sums on their children’s education with just one salary in the public administration.

Later, in 2020, the Meta-Kryemadhi couple declares that they cover the cost of educating their children in London by selling some apartments owned by Kryemadhi. During 2020, Meta and Kryemadhi have benefited another 50.000 euros from previous contracts for the sale of apartments.

But on the other hand they have withdrawn from Albanian banks 39.000 euros and about 60.000 pounds, spending part of the money in accounts of children who are being educated in England. So far there is no investigation by the judiciary for the much-discussed wealth of Ilir Meta, to clarify whether it has to do with wealth in London, or even other wealth in Albania./

All the losers of Lulzim Basha’s “victory”



Nga published two days ago exclusive data, which showed the failure of the political leaders of Lulzim Basha in the elections of April 25, 2021. According to them, the team of Lulzim Basha has managed to get about 85.000 votes less than the target set by leader of the Democratic Party.

The target was about 707.;000 votes, while the result achieved is about 620.000 votes. Only 3 or 4 of Lulzim Basha’s political leaders have achieved their goals, while 16 out of 20 of them have failed, some of them for the second or third time.

Bujar Leskaj in Vlora region managed to get only 4 mandates. In this district, the DP had a slight increase in votes, but it was still 7.972 votes less than the target.

In Korça, where there were two political leaders, Ervin Salianji and Edmond Spaho, the target was 60.400 votes, but in the ballot boxes there were about 10.000 votes less than the target, and about 6.000 votes less than in 2013, when DP came out in opposition.

In the region of Fier the political leader was Enkeled Aliabeaj, He ran for the third time since 2015, once as mayor, and 2 times for MP, and the result was almost 15.000 votes less than the target set by Basha.

In the region of Elbasan the result was not bad, and the DP is closer to the target, which has come because of the great decline of the SMI.

Tritan Shehu, the head of the region in Gjirokastra, received only 1 of the 4 mandates. Out of 23.500 votes that was the target set by Basha, he was able to get only 13.971 votes, over 9.000 votes less.

In the region of Tirana, Jorida Tabaku, the political leader for unit number 2, received 2.000 votes less than the target, while Alfred Rushaj over 1.900 votes less. Only 3-4 political leaders of the Tirana region have achieved the goal set by Basha, which has led to a balance of votes in this region.


Grida Duma in Kavaja failed sensationally, receiving 14.064 votes, or 4.236 votes less than the target. Flamur Noka in Kamza, is another failure, as he received 1144 votes less. An embarrassing result, in one of the bastions of the right. In the region of Durrës, the result was catastrophic.

DP Deputy Chairman Edi Paloka received 600 votes less than the target. Durrës was expected to score a big victory for the DP, but this didn’t happen. There is an increase in the number of votes, but a big difference between DP and SP.

Shkodra is the main bastion where DP failed. Political leader Helidon Bushati received 16.401 votes less than the target. Even Xhelal Mziu in Dibër, who claimed a great victory, got 8258 votes less than the target.


Another staggering failure is that of Mark Marku and multi-faceted analyst Agron Gjekmarkaj in the Lezha region. In Lezha, the DP received 33.998 votes, out of 37.000 that was the target. So minus 3.000 votes./



The analysis-Objectives and failure of Lulzim Basha/Elections, lecture for democrats




Analiza/ Pse Basha vendosi objektivin 707 mijë vota

The day before, published exclusive news about the election results. They had to do with the final result that Lulzim Basha had requested from his structures in the April 25 parliamentary elections. An objective that seemed mostly achievable, but that was not achieved in 16 of the 20 political leaders of Lulzim Basha.

The data show that the leader of the Democratic Party and his electoral and organizational headquarters have requested not a little, but about 707.000 votes at the national level. But even that is not a big increase. Why? Because on the day the Democratic Party handed over power after the 2013 elections, it received 690.000 votes, in alliance with the PJIU, Dashamir Shehi’s MND and several other parties.

But this time there were 2 additional political forces, Agron Duka’s Agrarian Environmentalist Party, and Vangjel Dules’s Union for Human Rights Party, which have a certain electoral weight. So even in these conditions Basha and his people, have asked only 17.000 more votes than in 2013.

But even this goal was not achieved. They got about 630.000 votes, making it impossible for the opposition to seize power. With the calculations made by the staff, Basha thought of winning 70 or 71 seats without the SMI. From the latter he expected to win 8-10 mandates, with which he will form a majority which could govern the country with 78-80 mandates.

But that didn’t happen. According to the table below, it is clear that the electoral objective of Basha’s governing structures has not been achieved. And now is being made a fatal mistake. The truth is not accepted, the failure of the objectives is not accepted, the result is not accepted.

But DP it is moving in a dead end, simply and only emphasizing that it was an “electoral massacre”, and not a loss.

In fact, even Sali Berisha suffered some losses while leading the Democratic Party. For example, in 2001, there was for the first time a real electoral massacre, after that of 1996. Police, violence, ballot box stuffing, etc. were used.

But Berisha managed to have facts, evidence, footage, official documents, such as the report of the polling stations, which clearly showed that the elections had been manipulated.

Today in 2021, where technology is not 20 times, but probably 20 thousand times more developed than 2 decades ago, the Democratic Party has failed to present any evidence of manipulation. Although he received every footage from every polling station, every footage from every vote counting group. Hundreds of ballot boxes were opened where the result was disputed, such as in Berat, Durrës, etc., and no manipulated or alienated vote came out.

In the end, what should be emphasized is that the objective of the DP political leaders has not been achieved. Those who have no eyes to see and no ears to hear or mouth to speak, will remain “dumb” or “deaf-dumb” of politics, worthless for anyone.

They will be mere servile and screenwriters of a yard. But, the truth is that the electorate body selected by Basha, the political leaders and his confidants failed. The failure is a case for a deep reform in the DP, which Lulzim Basha already seems unable to do, as it seems that he has been held hostage to his chair and cannot further increase the political results of the Democratic Party, with a structure that already failed several times and powerless, to achieve the required electoral objectives, which lead to the overthrow of power./
