By Elvi FUNDO

In a somewhat tense communication of recent days with Lulzim Basha, the minority and interim leader of the Democratic Party, writes me that he would never have wanted to have heard goods word from me or CNA.al.

But this isn’t true. We have said many good words about Lulzim Basha, and we have at last 31 reasons, why we are today with Lulzim Basha. Let start from the time he was a minister:

1. After appointments as Minister of Transport, he built for 2 years the Nation Road. In fact, Basha only conducted the tender, because took soon another task. Although the road was completed very late, it was Luli Basha who built it.

2. Then he became Foreign Minister. Basha signed the agreement on the sea border with Greece, and didn’t forgive a single centimeter of the Albanian sea. But then the pact was annulled by the Constitutional Court. Anyway, Basha protected our national borders.

 

3. He then took the post of Minister of Interior, where he didn’t commit any fault or crime. He established order and security, and was not the one who killed 4 people on the boulevard.

4. He later became the mayor of Tirana.

How can anyone not be on Basha’s side, when the latter built all that beautiful tram in the capital, which is envied not only in Albania, but by the whole Europe.

5. He joined Albania in NATO, abolished visas with EU countries. Basha did it all, because he was Prime Minister, Minister of Integration, Minister of Finance etc.

6. Others begged him to become chairman of the DP, and he won with his own forces. So there was a fair race, without interference. He also had Sali Berisha against him in this race and in the end he succeeded.

cna news, cna lajme, lajme cna, lajme flash cna, cna.al, cna lajme politike, 7. He convened the National Assembly and elected the new party structures, united the Democratic Party very strongly.

8. In 2015, he won the local elections, after becoming part of the Territorial Reform. After a successful electoral reform, he took over 14 municipalities, as the opposition was the main alternative.

9. How can anyone not support Lulzim Basha, when he sent the Law on Higher Education of Edi Rama to the Constitutional Court, overturning it.

10. He supported the students in their protests, didn’t divide and never betrayed them.

11. How can anyone not support Lulzim Basha, when he participated in the Justice Reform. He promised he would never vote, and so he did it.

12. Is there any reason not to say a good word about Lulzim Basha, who achieved all those successes and victories. He didn’t join the Tent’s protests, he refused to do so.

13. He never made any secret deals with Edi Rama. He never accepted 16 million euros for his family, but strongly opposed Edi Rama, shocking the latter.

14. He never co-governed with Edi Rama, and rejected the alms of the Socialist Party.

15. He never drafted the lists of candidates for MPs in 2017.

On the contrary, he did them in cooperation with the presidency and the National Council of DP.

16. He didn’t remove anyone from the lists of candidates for MPs in 2017. He didn’t close the office, but was transparent with everyone, and his list was spectacular.

17. How can anyone not be with Lulzim Basha, who won the 2017 elections and brought the DP to power.

18. How can anyone not be with Lulzim Basha, when he resigned even though he won. Who doesn’t know, is wrong. He never “freezes” his status as chairman of the DP.

19. And how can anyone not be with Lulzim Basha, when you remember the battle in the Great Ring. He didn’t betray the inhabitants, he didn’t leave them alone. When the police went to evict them from the houses that would be demolished, Basha intervened and repulsed them.

20. How can anyone not say a kind word and support Lulzim Basha today, when he never betrayed the boys of Kukës, who didn’t dare to protest for the beam on Nation Road . Basha was there, he encouraged them, he protested with them, he was by their side. He forcibly removed his brother-in-law from the offices of the concession company.

21. He has talked so much about incinerators and their corruption. He never took money from them. What is said up and down, are all lies.

22. How can anyone not be today with Lulzim Basha, the man who never burned the mandates of the deputies and remained stoic. He rejected the Americans’request for their burning.

23. He won easily the 2019 local elections, and didn’t accept the US request to boycott them. He is the man who won the local elections, and didn’t resign. He stood there and led the party to the victory.

23. Has set up working groups. He compiled the lists of candidates as the party base wanted.

Ekskluzive/ Zbulohet kur del lista e kandidatëve të PD për deputetë24. Set up vetting commissions in the DP, which he listened to until the end.

25. And who says that Lulzim Basha makes the lists of candidates for deputies himself? Lie. He has never done such things. He put on the list those who deserved it. There are rumors about money he takes from some candidates. But even these are lies.

26. Basha entered the April 25, 2021, election and won. And how could it be otherwise? Who was discussing his victory? He is a leader, whose career has only victories. He has done only good. He has never lost. So it was on April 25th.

27. Others begged him to stay as party chairman, even after this victory. But Basha left resigning.

28. Rejected farce elections in the Democratic Party. This is not part of his character.

29. He never split the Democratic Party. He didn’t expel anyone from the party. Neither did Sali Berisha, who raised him, put him in the party, and made him chairman. Basha resigned, but Berisha kept him with force at the helm of the Democratic Party. Basha has never betrayed anyone. He is a great leader, who has probably not read these goodies we mentioned above.

30. He didn’t increase his wealth by a single penny. He never got villas or cash from the oligarchs. Where is a man more honest than Luli Basha!

31. Basha never lied. How true, how sincere, how fair he is! He is the symbol of truth.

All this need to be read and taught well by those who today curse, criticize, and slander to Luli Basha, who has done so many good things. And we hope that one day he will reflect seriously, put his hand on his heart, and continue to be at the top of the DP.

He has to stay there this is, because with all these goodies, where would we find another chairman like him? So we have to beg him to stay as the Prime Minister of the country, as the mayor of Tirana, as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Interior and Minister of Transport.
Let everything be Luli Basha, as he is the best.

Luli is more beautiful and honest than anyone else. Luli is a real man. And what Gazemend Bardhi says up and down, are not true. And what say other critics like Grida Duma, Ervin Salianji, or Agron Gjekmarkaj, along with those who speak and make noise in the parliamentary group, are not real too. Luli Basha is a great leader. And he deserves it all. He and only he is the best. That is why today I am with Luli./ CNA.al

The decision of the Venice Commission, a hard “punch” for Lulzim Basha and Ilir Meta

Zbardhen propozimet e PD-LSI për sabotimin e reformës në drejtësi/ Ja mesazhet e Bashës dhe Metës

The political parties have provided a draft preliminary report, regarding the opinion given by the Venice Commission, following the request made by the Constitutional Court, about the legitimacy of the local elections of June 30, 2019.

But this happens immediately after a very tense political situation in the country, especially for the opposition and the President of the Republic. In 2019, Lulzim Basha in cooperation with Monika Kryemadhi, decided to burn the mandates of MPs.

A personal decision again of Basha, that someone could try to leave in oblivion. In fact, it was Basha who decided to burn the mandates. He even opposed foreign representatives, European and US diplomats at the time, telling them there was no going back.

He later boycotted local elections, and sought to escalate political tensions in the country. But he was “threatened” by the international community, and then withdrew. The elections took place, Edi Rama took over all the municipalities of the country, giving him the opportunity to create a structure even more solid for the next parliamentary elections.

Ilir Meta postponed the elections, stating that they would be held in October of that year. But that didn’t happen. Basha then said that the local elections had not been lost, and that the majority of Albanians had voted for him and the Democratic Party.

Then came this year’s parliamentary elections. Basha lost again, and the SMI suffered an electoral catastrophe. Then another lie circulated in the corridors of the Democratic Party, according to which the President of the Republic would announce the early local elections, as this would be decided by the Constitutional Court.

In fact, this new institution found another solution. He addressed the Venice Commission, an established institution of jurisprudence with international fame, from where he often received interpretations regarding the situations charged by the political parties, which interpret the Constitution according to their interest.



What happened? Nothing more than expected. The Constitutional Court is already expected to come up with the decision of the Venice Commission, which clearly states that the boycott was a wrong move, and that the parties can boycott whenever they want, but no one can stop the will of the voters to take part and vote free.

So, Basha is not once but several times unconstitutional in his political actions. Firstly, because it boycotted the elections, and secondly because it wanted to disrupt them, preventing citizens from voting freely. With its decision, Venice has given a strong “punch” to Basha and Meta.

Therefore, both should leave the positions they currently hold. Basha for the decision to boycott the elections and create unnecessary political tensions in the country, and Ilir Meta for their postponement, and his involvement in the political game as a “suicide bomber” in the interest of the party of his wife and Lulzim Basha.

In fact, Basha has further added his mistakes, until the loss of the parliamentary elections, mistakes that already seem to be forgotten. But this decision of the Venice Commission, and the decision of the Constitutional Court that will follow it, will be enough to put another big cross on Lulzim Basha and his political action in these 8 years./CNA.al

Deepens the corruption affair AEPC-NOA / How the Competition Authority got involved in the scandal

Nga

The corrupt affair of Albanian Electricity Power Corporation(AEPC) with a private company is being further dismantled, and every day CNA.al is publishing documents that show how worked a well-thought-out and pre-prepared scheme, which produced an agreement that brought a private company millions of euros income only from a contract with the AEPC, playing spectacularly with energy exchange schedules.

But before these schedules, everything started with the preparation and signing of the contract. CNA.al revealed that on March 4, 2021, the private company NOA Energy asked AEPC to sign an agreement on electricity storage. This agreement is then detailed and announced publicly on March 8th.

So 3 days after the director of that time, Benet Beci had resigned. But he continued to stay in office. Also, on March 8, the AEPC administrator prepares the letter and on the March9th forward the request to the Energy Regulatory Authority and the Competition Authority.

Although previously the Competition Authority had annulled such decisions. So from 2019 many other private companies were not given this opportunity. This time, for only 48 hours, the Competition Authority comes out with a decision.

The decision is dated March 12, 2021, and clearly states that it has recommended to AEPC that during the interest procedures to guarantee the fulfillment of the obligation for public service, to respect the principles of mobility, there are no restrictive deposits, obliges AEPC as the dominant operator, that in any contract which establishes special exclusive rights, to request a preliminary evaluation by the Competition Commission, etc.

The Competition Authority has a political representation. The chairwoman is Juliana Latifi, while the members are Denar Biba, former head of the CEC, as a representative of the SP. Adriana Berberi, Eduard Ypi, former director of the Treasury during the DP government, and Ledina Matja, former deputy prime minister, who also holds the post of deputy chairman of the Competition Authority.

So an institution with political representation, where everyone is involved in a corrupt and scandalous contract, which today generates millions of euros in profits for a private company. The whole contract itself does not specify the schedules, ie the energy peak, the time when the energy will be exchanged.

But, this is where the game begins. Energy is bought at peak times, when the price is very high and returns to the hours after midnight, in the early hours of the morning, when energy demand falls and its market price is very low.

The contract was totally initiated by Benet Beci, the former director of AEPC, who although he resigned on March 5, as he himself confirmed for CNA.al, he continued to go to the offices of AEPC, and according to reliable information from the institutions, has supervised the whole process.

So, from the March 4th when the first letter was sent, until the March 12 th, within 8 days. And we must not forget that it was the time on the eve of the April 25 election campaign, when a state institution elected by parliament, such as the Competition Authority, quickly approved AEPC’request.

The 3-page decision is ridiculous, totally absurd, and doesn’t protect the interests of the consumer, nor of AEPC, but only creates the whole space for a private company, which uses the energy produced by AEPC to use the latter to introduce millions of euros in her pockets.

This is the fourth document published by CNA.al on this issue. We will make public other documents, which continue with a subsequent correspondence that had AEPC with the Competition Authority, until the agreement that was signed on May 4./CNA.al

Who are the names/ Sali Berisha takes away from Lulzim Basha the DP parliamentary group

Publikuar

-

Nga

In the last parliamentary elections, the Democratic Party managed to get a total of 59 deputies, including the allies. But after the general parliamentary elections of April 25, 2021, the Democratic Party under the leadership of Lulzim Basha, seems to be only deepening its divisions.

In the last 8 years, Lulzim Basha has divided and destroyed the structures of this party, to then put the “seal” on September 9, 2021, with his personal decision, excluding the former Prime Minister and historical leader of the Democrats, Sali Berisha, from the DP parliamentary group.

But his personal decision to oust Berisha seems to be costing Lulzim Basha a lot, as it is already clear that the majority of the parliamentary group and the membership of the Democratic Party are on Sali Berisha’s side.

Beyond Berisha’s “Rostrum”, where in every city he was greeted with applause and enthusiasm by thousands of Democrats, it seems that the parliamentary group of the Democratic Party is also on the side of former Prime Minister Berisha.

Already a part of the PD deputies have appeared openly in the media with pro-Berisha attitudes, while another part remain silent. And the fact is that now we have a lonely Lulzim Basha, who has as a supporter only Grida Duma, Ervin Salianji, and maybe to some extent also Agron Gjekmarkaj, or some other servile.

Although Basha tries to urge the deputies to take a public stand, some of them refuse to speak, while some of them have come out openly speaking against his personal decisions. Some figures that have appeared publicly next to Berisha are Flamur Noka, Edi Paloka, Edmond Spaho, Tritan Shehu, Oerd Bylykbashi, Luçiano Boçi, Isuf Çelaj, Bujar Leskaj, Albana Vokshi, Luan Baçi.

LEXO EDHE:  Protesta nëpërmjet fotove/ Momentet kur shkatërrohen sportelet dhe digjen kabinat

LEXO EDHE:  PD mbyll protestën/Basha jep mesazhin

So there are 10 deputies from the DP parliamentary group, who have come out openly next to Berisha, plus the former Prime Minister, which means 11 deputies. On the other hand, there are over 10 other deputies who remain silent, and who haven’t accepted Lulzim Basha’s request to hold positions in the media.



So in total Basha received 59 deputies, including 7 mandates from the allies, Shpëtim Idrizi, Mesila Doda, Nustret Avdulla, Vangjel Dule, Dashamir Shehi, Agron Duka and Fatmir Mediu. But 11 deputies together with Berisha have come out openly against Basha.

Plus over 10 others who remain silent, and if we subtract 7 that are allies, with a simple account it becomes clear that Berisha has in his side more than half of the parliamentary group of the Democratic Party.

While Basha has only a few deputies, which are counted with the fingers of the hand.

Although he made the lists himself, Lulzim Basha has been left only with a small group around him. And in the following days other deputies are expected to openly side with Sali Berisha.

Democrats are clear that the failures and cyclical losses of Lulzim Basha, have destroyed the DP by turning in a “crutch” of Prime Minister Edi Rama. The facts show that Lulzim Basha is now simply and only a chairman with the stamp in his hand, and the party has remained only as a small structure within DP./CNA.al
