Lulzim Basha’s political “madness”/ What did the parliamentary

We are still a few days away from September, when the new parliament is expected to be constituted. The new parliament is expected to convene between September 9-19. According to the law, the President of the Republic decrees the convening of the new parliament, not earlier than the date of the end of the term of the previous assembly, and not later than 10 days after the end of this term.

But in case the head of state doesn?t act, the parliament itself convenes after this deadline. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party and the Socialist Movement for Integration will return to Parliament after 2 and a half years of boycott. But what did the parliamentary boycott for over 2 years serve for?

In February 2019, Lulzim Basha made a decision, which today can be called a political ?madness? of the DP leader. During a protest, Basha announced the burning of the mandates of the deputies, while the chairwoman of the SMI, Monika Kryemadhi, joined his political madness.

This decision was criticized by many Democrats, including the former Prime Minister and the historical leader of the Democrats, Sali Berisha, who warned that ?such a decision could lead the DP to the abyss?. But it was a decision of Lulzim Basha, hasty and unconsulted, and the consequences were seen by all Albanians.

But as if leaving the parliament was not enough, Lulzim Basha continued his ?madness?, boycotting the local elections of June 30, 2019. In this way he gave on the table to the Prime Minister Edi Rama not only a constitutional majority in parliament, but also all local government.

The Socialist Party, led by Edi Rama, took over all power. It even took over the running of municipalities historically known as right-wing strongholds. Basha abandoned the Democrats, thus leaving them unrepresented in institutions, and for 2 years dragged them on the streets, saying that there will be early elections in the spring, then in the fall, and so on.

Thus passes two and a half years, and came the parliamentary elections of April 25, 2021. Another electoral catastrophe for the Democratic Party led by Lulzim Basha. But as always the latter doesn?t accept the losses, and finds the next ?alibi?.

On the evening of April 25, Lulzim Basha declared victory. On April 26 he said that the boxes of the bastions of the Socialists were being counted first, and that the overthrow would soon begin. Meanwhile, on April 27, he declared that his votes had been stolen, and that the ?battle? had just begun.

So from the victory announced full of fuss, Basha went on to steal and the so-called ?electoral massacre?, which in fact raises doubts that it is just another alibi to not accept failure, and to continue to hold the post of chairman of the DP .

But if the ?battle? started after the April 25 elections, as Basha declares, what did the 2 and a half year boycott serve for? What did Lulzim Basha gain from leaving the institutions? What did Lulzim Basha gain by leaving the Democrats unrepresented in parliament but also in local government?

These are the questions that the DP leader must answer. These answers deserve the Democrats, who dragged their feet for 2 years with lies about early ?elections?, to come to April 25, where the DP remained in opposition for the third consecutive term.

And for the first time in the history of political pluralism in Albania, the Socialist Party won three consecutive governing terms. While Basha continues to ?fight? with the windmills, and see dreams with ?victory?. All these are consequences of his political actions./CNA.al
