Monika Kryemadhi abandons the citizens of Fier/After receiving their votes, she is silent about the affair that is taking their lives


Monika Kryemadhi abandons the citizens of Fier/After receiving their votes, she is silent about the affair that is taking their lives



 Është e frikësuar për pakt të ri Rama-Basha?/ Kryemadhi: Nuk besoj fare

Smoke and soot have covered the city of Fier for several days in a row, due to the burning of urban waste in Mbrostar. Urban waste has been set on fire, and in a short time Fier has been blackened, thus seriously endangering the lives of citizens.

The Fier incinerator for which the Albanian government has given 30 million euros from the Albanian taxpayers’money, should have been put to work, while the responsibility for why this has not happened has turned into a kind of ping-pong, passing the blame from one institution to another.

What aggravates the situation even more is the silence of justice, especially of SPAK, an institution that should have already reacted. But instead of a reaction, he seems to have teamed up with the arsonists, and those who had to build the incinerator that never worked, or at last until today.

On the other hand, there is a silence of politics, mainly of the opposition, which should have raised its voice and supported the residents of Fier. But the leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha was reminded to react only this morning on the poisoning of thousands of citizens by toxic fumes, complaining why SPAK is not launching investigations on this issue.

Meanwhile, the chairwoman of the Socialist Movement for Integration, Monika Kryemadhi, has not yet said a single word about this scandal that is happening in the area when she was elected MP. Kryemadhi has disappeared from the public scene, and she doesn’t care what is happening in the area where she ran and won the mandate of deputy.

Before the elections, she left Tirana to represent the residents of Fier in the Parliament. But it seems that Kryemadhi has already abandoned the residents of Fier, before going to Parliament as their representative.

During the election campaign in Fier, Kryemadhi promised that he would fight government gangs, and that he would support the citizens for their rights. When the citizens of Fier are being forced to leave their homes because they cannot breathe from the smoke and soot, so that their lives are endangered, nobody knows where she is playing the role of First Lady, or is on vacation. The apocalyptic images that have included the city of Fier during the last days, and the non-reaction of Kryemadhi, are the real face of the SMI./

SMI was “executed” on April 25/ Monika Kryemadhi “commemorates the fallen”




cna lajme politike

The April 25th parliamentary elections brought a severe blow to Ilir Meta’s party, the Socialist Movement for Integration, which is now led by his wife, Monika Kryemadhi. From 19 mandates he received 4 years ago, in the elections of April 25, 2021, the SMI was reduced to only 4 mandates, where “leads” the deputy with only 362 votes Petrit Vasili.

After the “melting” of the SMI, and after accepting the loss, Monika Kryemadhi “disappeared” from television screens and social networks. No single words, no reaction from her for many weeks. But today she is “wake up” to commemorate the “grace” of her party.

The 17th anniversary of the creation of the SMI, prompted Kryemadhi to write two lines of congratulations for the SMI on social networks. In a post on her profile, Kryemadhi reminds the party that no longer exists, or its “grace”, after the SMI was “executed” at the age of 17, on April 25, 2021, where it received a fatal blow.

But while remembering the “fallen” of the SMI, Kryemadhi writes that the “mission” continues. “Happy Birthday SMI! Happy Birthday for all of you boys and girls, men and women, for all of you who love her, you that have fought and continue to fight for what the SMI represents. The mission continues”- writes Monika Kryemadhi.

Perhaps Kryemadhi is talking about the “mission” that began on April 25, and who led to the final sinking of the party of her husband Ilir Meta, today President of Albania.

We recall that the Socialist Movement for Integration was created on September 6, 2004, as a group of politicians separated from the Socialist Party, led by Ilir Meta.

In the first elections he ran in 2005, the SMI won 3 seats. In 2009 won 4 seats and became part of the government for the first time, thanks to the coalition with the Democratic Party.

In the 2013 elections the SMI won 16 seats and formed the government with the SP, while in 2017 it reached the peak with 19 seats won, but passed into opposition. Former chairman of the SMI, Ilir Meta was elected President of the Republic of Albania. In those elections, the SMI ran with Petrit Vasili as its chairman. Then the party was led by Monika Kryemadhi, who continues to led it until today.

Whereas, today SMI continues to be in opposition, after the fatal blow it received in the elections of April 25, 2021, where it ended with only 4 mandates of deputies, respectively Agron Çela in Shkodra with 2,656 votes, Erisa Xhixho in Tirana with 1.065 votes, Monika Kryemadhi in Fier with 1.771 votes and Petrit Vasili in Tirana with only 362 votes./



History cannot be erased/ Sali Berisha and a necessary comment




cna lajme english

For several weeks now, Albanian politics has been focusing on Sali Berisha and the decision of US Secretary of State Blinken to declare him non grata. This decision is being used to articulate many accusations, in fact without many arguments, according to which Berisha should leave from the Parliament at all costs.

In fact, Berisha’s figure must be analyzed from several points of view. First, Berisha has his own light-shade in his long political career. He certainly has his historical responsibilities for the good and the bad things that have happened in Albania. And history will judge these latter.

But what can we judge in 30 years, and what can we say about Sali Berisha? First, Berisha is one of the founders of the Democratic Party. One of the people, who in 1990 was at the head of those who overthrew the communist regime. He was later elected President of the Republic, and together with a hardworking Prime Minister, Aleksandër Meksi, was able to radically reform the Albanian state.

At that time were established new ministries, structures and institutions. The concept of taxes, capital, private property began to be implemented. Then came the pyramid schemes and the tragic events of 1997. The DP waged an existential battle at the time, and rose from the ashes in 2005, came to power, leading one of the best governments in the history of Albania.

Like it or not, this is a fact that is accepted in international reports. Thousands of businesses and citizens today give Berisha the right to a flat tax of 10 percent. Meanwhile, order and security underwent an epochal change during 2005-2009. Dozens of gangs and criminal groups that had invaded Albania, ended up in prison.

Albania entered the Schengen area, and Albanians began travel for the first time to Europe without visas. The country joined NATO with Sali Berisha as Prime Minister. So, in almost 22 years, for 13 years Albania has been governed by democrats, with their pros and cons.

Of course there was corruption, as well as other problems.

But Sali Berisha cannot be multiplied by zero. This is the mistake everyone makes. He has been the Prime Minister of Albania, chairman of the Democratic Party. The history of the Democratic Party cannot be multiplied by zero, because some socialists or supporters of Lulzim Basha want it.

Berisha should clarify personally the non grata declaration with the US State Department. The US Embassy has the right to request the official position of the DP towards Berisha. But the great truth is that Sali Berisha is the statesman of these 30 years of democracy and transition, and as he has made mistakes, he also made good things.

Can we find faults and attack Sali Berisha? Infinitely. He made fatal mistakes with former political persecutors. He rose to power twice, and failed to complete the compensation process for former persecutors and former owners.

He also kept in charge the infamous law no.7501, or was partially responsible for the tragic events of 1997. But in the meantime, there are many historical political acts for Albania, which bear the signature of Sali Berisha. We have seen him on the side of American presidents, on the side of chancellors and Prime Ministers across Europe.

Berisha is a story, whether some people like it or not. Therefore, the articulation by some individuals is disgusting and cannot be accepted not only by the Democrats, but also by the media and the entire civic elite.

The Democratic Party needs to be more careful. Because by “killing” every day Sali Berisha, it will kill its history, and in the end it will be destroyed as the leftists want. It will be history that will put the dots on the “i” for Sali Berisha.

But the politics of the day cannot be so disgusting as to reject everything that Sali Berisha has done for Albania. Otherwise, this behavior would be worse than under communism. Only the dictator Enver Hoxha once erased the past history, built his variants, and gave them as “fond” to the Albanians.

But this cannot happen in a democratic history. Sali Berisha must be accepted for what he has done well, and will be challenged for what he has done badly. Time will tell. No one can say that Secretary Blinken’s decision is right or wrong. Time will tell./



Lulzim Basha, as the Minister of Relations with the Opposition in the government “Rama 3”




cna lajme politike

It may seem unbelievable or a conspiracy theory, but in recent weeks it has seemed as if at the head of the Democratic Party, the Albanian opposition, instead of a political leader fighting against the government, we have a man who couldn’t wait to take his post.

So the role he would play in relations with the “Rama 3” government. Lulzim Basha told this yesterday immediately after the meeting of the SP Assembly. But he said this also 2 days ago, after the meeting of the National Council of the DP, where was elected the new Presidency.

Things are clear. Two comparisons that don’t need much doubt. They are facts. Yesterday, through a long speech, Edi Rama attacked his government, accused its directors, and finally decided to hold more than 60 percent of the cabinet ministers, changing only a few ministers, mostly women.

In this way he set a world record, having the government with more women in the world. And Basha’s reaction was as if the leader of the Democratic Party had mentioned his name as a minister. In his reaction, Basha didn’t say a single word about his governing cabinet.

Not a word about the new ministers, nor about Rama’s new secretariat in the SP, which includes many personalities who have been part of the criminal files denounced by the Democratic Party in the last 8 years.

Basha reacted yesterday as if he were a minister of Edi Rama. He said only a few sentences in a post on social media, using only the OSCE-ODIHR report on violations observed in the April 25 elections. But this story is already closed. Edi Rama is in government, so in power.

Parliament convenes next week. The CEC has announced the final results. Such claims there will always exist in international reports.

Edi Rama extended his hand of cooperation, while Lulzim Basha accepted the offer. When he convened the National Council, he didn’t talk so much about the “electoral massacre”. He declared that he was ready to carry out the Administrative, Constitutional and Electoral Reform together with the government.

LEXO EDHE:  “Basha-Kryemadhi po keqpërdorin deputetët e rinj”

So to co-govern with Edi Rama in parliament, through reforms. Edi Rama said the same thing yesterday, and Lulzim Basha did the same with his reaction. The cooperation between the two is very clear in two aspects. In the speech of Edi Rama, in his attitude, and in the reaction of Lulzim Basha yesterday.

We do not have a co-government with ministers in government. But, we have a minister at the head of the opposition, a “minister” of Edi Rama for relations with him, and closely for cooperation in parliament, for the Electoral Reform, as an excuse for the catastrophic loss of Lulzim Basha, to secure him the chair of the chairman of DP, and on the other hand, an Administrative Reform that can give Basha some more municipalities.

And finally the constitutional changes of 2008, which will want the consent of all parties. Now the parties are moving forward. The “Rama 3” government was formed. She already has a Minister for Relations with the Opposition, Lulzim Basha. The relationship seems to be healthy. We will have an opposition with a softer and with a more loving language.

An opposition that will try to get the most out of what it is expected to do in parliament. But, it will take 6 months, maybe even 1 year for him to start attacking Rama’s ministers, as it will be very difficult, because Lulzim Basha himself is part of this cabinet./
