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


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./

Why Lulzim Basha cannot be compared to Sali Berisha/ Here are the debts that he has to pay to the democrats




cna news, cna lajme, lajme cna, lajme flash cna,, cna lajme politike,

Six months after losing the parliamentary elections, the still acting leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, has made untrue and ridiculous statements on Top Channel, the television of the partners of the incinerator owners.

Although tired and with red eyes, Basha said yesterday, among other things, that “Berisha should have withdrawn from politics, because of the debts he owes to the democrats, as they have made him twice prime minister, and once president”. This is true, but Berisha was their leader.

He rose to power, won the election. Does Basha owe anything to the democrats, as he came to the Democratic Party from the street in 2005, and the democrats made immediately him Minister of Transport ?! A minister accused of a 100 million euro corruption scandal involving Nation Road.

Then the democrats made him Foreign Minister, when he signed the maritime border agreement with Greece, which was overturned by the Constitutional Court. The same thing happened when he was appointed Minister of Interior, and exactly in his time happened the event, where 4 citizen were killed on the boulevard on January 21, 2011.

And again there were the democrats and Sali Berisha, who made him mayor of Tirana for 4 years, just to fall asleep and to build high palaces. In 2013, were the democrats who made him chairman of the Democratic Party, with the support of Sali Berisha.

And in 2017, although he lost catastrophically, with the weakest result of the DP in 30 years of existence, they re-elected him at the helm of the party, believing and thinking that he would move forward, that he would learn from his mistakes.

But came this year’s election, where he lost again. And again the democrats elected him chairman of the DP. Certainly to some extent with the support of Sali Berisha. Now Basha claims that Berisha owed the democrats, because he kept them in power for 13 years, and directed Albania with a vision that someone supports, someone criticizes, but that the democrats in the absolute majority are in his favor.

On the other side stands Lulzim Basha. He was 3 times minister, 1 time mayor, and 3 times party chairman. Is there no debt owed to the democrats? Who loses, loses and only loses? On the other hand Basha gets richer at the head of the opposition.

The democrats owe nothing to Lulzim Basha. On the contrary, it is Lulzim Basha, who owes a lot to the democrats, and he can repay them only by leaving from the party. Yesterday’s appearance in the media had a purpose. Basha aimed to increase support, after a poll that showed that he has minimal support compared to Berisha.

And instead of recovering ground, yesterday he lost again. That’s because he forgot to mention the many debts he owes to democrats. And because of his wrong attitude towards Berisha. Basha can never be a guy like Sali Berisha. Because if he were, he would have brought the Democratic Party to power at least once.

And he would have won at least one race alone. Basha has never won on his own. The power was given to him by Sali Berisha and the democrats. Whereas Sali Berisha has won even without Lulzim Basha, and has given endless power to Lulzim Basha, including the possibility of staying at the head of the DP and talking stupidly on television screens./

Chinese chemical fertilizers for albanians/ Who “shut up” the SPAK?




In the last 8 years the government of the Socialist Party has been accompanied by many scandals, which have been denounced by with evidence, facts and documents. One of the scandals, which is directly related to the health of albanian citizens is that of Chinese pesticides.

It is about a scandal that occurred in 2018, where large quantities of pesticides used in agriculture, were brought from China to Albania, and it is believed that they have already been consumed by albanian consumers. has denounced the scandal in some investigative articles, where are suspected of being involved senior Rama government officials.

Through official documents, showed how thousands of boxes of chinese pesticides, not certified by the European Union, have entered our country, although this is prohibited by law. But officials have argued that the chinese company that exported the pesticides, is a subsidiary of a Spanish company, which has never been proven. showed with exclusive documents that quantities of banned pesticides were loaded in China, and then from Shanghai arrived in Durrës. All were the orders of the Albanian company AGRO-ZANI shpk, with address in Berat.

While, another quantity was ordered by Shegaj-Agr shpk, which is administered by Adriatik Hadëri. This company on 14.03, 2018 has declared customs clearance for pesticides, which are used in agriculture, where it is clearly stated that the exporting company is a Chinese company.

This citizen has stated that the Chinese exporting company is a subsidiary of the company “MAC-GmbH, with address in Germany. Also, according to official data provided by, it is learned that everything went to the Prosecution of Durres, to be investigated as a scandal, and also on this issue there was a complete information, provided by the Directorate of Investigation, at customs.

Also, has learned that the Supreme State Audit has launched an inspection at the customs, regarding the scandal in question. The same sources inform that a group of SSA inspectors have started the controls. But beyond the political officials who are suspected of being involved in the scandal, the problem is the attitude of the judiciary.

The Special Prosecution Office against Corruption and Organized Crime, otherwise known as SPAK, is one of the new institutions emerging from the Justice Reform, strongly trumpeted by the international community. SPAK is seen as a hope for Albanians that the missing justice will finally come, and that corruption in the ranks of politics and senior officials, will finally receive the punishment it deserves.

But, SPAK has remained silent in the face of evidence published by Justice has “shut up” in the face of a scandal that directly affects the health of Albanian citizens. The fact are facts. And the truth is that the pesticides brought by a Chinese company, were introduced to Albania directly from China, without obtaining the certification of the European Union standard.

And although such an act is strictly prohibited by law, as no pesticides or chemical fertilizers from outside the EU can enter Albania, the crime has apparently occurred. And SPAK is facing trial. Now this institution should show if it has eyes to see and ears to hear./




Why should Ilir Meta be kept away from the “Rostrum”?!




cna news, cna lajme, lajme cna, lajme flash cna,, cna lajme politike, cna kronike, cna lajme bote, cna show

In recent days, there has been an approach with Ilir Meta by the people who have started a battle against Lulzim Basha, or critics of the still incumbent leader of the Democratic Party. The debates of the last days, the attitudes of Monika Kryemadhi, and then of President Meta himself, were enough for the public opinion, the people who want Basha to leave, those who were expelled from the Democratic Party, to have a positive approach to Meta and to give messages of rapprochement.

In fact, there would be a fatal mistake an approach of “Rostrum”, the action that is happening in the Democratic Party, and the hope that it has raised in public opinion, with Ilir Meta. There may be people who think that without Ilir Meta, the DP will not win the elections. There are also people who think that an opposition coalition with the SMI can go further, and such front is needed to overthrow Rama. The attitudes are different. But today in no way and for no reason, neither “Rostrum” nor Sali Berisha should to be attached to Ilir Meta. Some people, at least those who defend the theses of Sali Berisha and the “Rostrum”, are trying to go closer to Meta and use him as another alibi on what Lulzim Basha has done wrong.

Everyone already knows who is Lulzim Basha. A serial loser, a corrupt man, a man who doesn’t keep his word, a man taken hostage, a traitor, etc. So many things that Ilir Meta doesn’t need to say. That’s what the democrats told him. Others have said it before Ilir Meta.

Exactly when Basha was defended by Sali Berisha, for example Topalli, Patozi. Latter Sali Berisha told this thing, and dozens of DP leaders are telling every day. So there is no need for “Rostrum” and the Democrats, or those who have hope from this political action of Sali Berisha, to see hope in Ilir Meta.

In the eyes of public opinion, Ilir Meta is the most corrupt politician in these 30 years of democracy. Maybe he can get the maximum grade in politics. Because he has done everything to survive, and he has done so in the name of integration, in the name of his pro-European approach, as a socialist, as their traitor, as the center party, etc.

But for the public opinion, Meta is a thief, corrupt, a scandalous politician, and in the last elections the Albanians gave him a deserved answer through the vote. The SMI, the party of buying jobs, or selling political posts, must crumble.

LEXO EDHE:  Deklarata qesharake e Lulzim Bashës

And one of the promises that must make “Rostrum” should be this:political clientelism should disappear. And if the SMI is a force that wants to raise, it could join the SP or some other force. But cooperation with parties like the SMI cannot be allowed, since unlike other European countries where similar forces focus on the political stability of the country, in Albania the interest is only to get some jobs, to add some votes and mandates of deputies.

And by getting a few more votes, they get more ministerial posts, appoint more directors, make more money, and so on.

Therefore, “Rostrum” and Sali Berisha himself must be very careful with Ilir Meta, and with the attitude he must maintain towards the SMI. Currently, “Rostrum” has raised hopes beyond the democrats. People expect to have the right to vote and elect their representatives, and this would lead to the collapse of the system, or the removal of Edi Rama, who is in power for a third term.

On the other hand, Meta doesn’t say anything new. He is mentioning facts and arguments against Lulzim Basha, which the democrats know. The Meta-Basha clash is an approach that helps Prime Minister Rama. The more Ilir Meta attack Lulzim Basha, more points can be increased within the DP, but also within the gray electorate.

Therefore, he must be kept away at all costs. Moreover, there are hundreds or thousands of democrats who have had dissatisfaction in the DP since 2009, when Ilir Meta joined the coalition with the DP. There have been many others, who have criticized the alliance with the SMI even in this year’s elections.

Therefore, every political step, every articulation and attitude must be far from Ilir Meta and against Lulzim Basha. The “Rostrum” doesn’t need Ilir Meta or his gang. Maybe in the campaign or after the campaign, the opposition front is something else. But today, in order for the Democratic Party to be revived, and to strength the “Rostrum”, Ilir Meta must be kept as far away as possible./
