Two years ago, the President of the Republic, Ilir Meta, was the man who stirred up the waters of Albanian politics. He irresponsibly provoked social conflicts to the point of violent clashes between political parties, and postponed the date of local elections.

Ilir Meta, the president elected by the Socialist Party Edi Rama, after the Socialist Movement for Integration came out in opposition in 2017, began to serve unstoppably to the opposition. Although the head of state should be over the parties, he became the main tool of the attempt to plunge the country into political instability.

After the burning of mandates by DP and SMI, the opposition at that time demanded the postponement of local elections, although in December 2018 political parties sat at a table with the president and agreed on the date of local elections, and June 30 was decreed with the consent of Meta, Kryemadhi, Basha and Rama.

Then the president went “crazy” and started declaring that on June 30, 2019 there would be no elections, that they would be postponed because there were protests by the opposition, which had burned the mandates of MPs. In fact, the burning of mandates was opposed by all.

Or at least from most people who understand what it means for a political party to leave the system. Not to mention the violent protests or tear gas fired by the Republican Guard against the protesters to protect the institutions.

The foreign diplomats, whom Lulzim Basha calls today as his supporters, asked the then leader of the Democratic Party to withdraw from the violent protests, not to burn the mandates, as well as to participate in the local elections. But Basha did the opposite, together with Ilir Meta.

The president postponed the election date, while Basha declared that he wouldn’t run in the elections. The US and the EU stated that elections were to be held. And in fact that is what happened. The SP competed with several small parties in this election, including the Democratic Conviction that was created recently.

At that time, was raised the alibi that in October 2019 local elections would be repeated, but this didn’t happen. Basha used this thesis to lie to the Democrats. He said that in the spring of 2020 there will be other local elections. He then told Democrats that they would be retained in the fall of that year. This is what Ilir Meta claimed.

cna lajme politikeThe President of the Republic said that should be awaited the position of the Venice Commission, and then the decision of the Constitutional Court. In fact, they both made their decision, which is already public. They dismissed as illegal the postponement of the election date. The Court clearly states that the Constitution doesn’t recognize the annulment of the decree, but only the decree from the head of state.

So with the decrees there can be no political games. But this decision unmasked before the public the violations of the Constitution by President Ilir Meta, who has in the Constitutional Court a certain number of representatives elected by him.

Even some of them have voted against, as they wouldn’t accept to be part of the crazy moves of Ilir Meta 2 years ago. Today is the time of the dismissal of President Ilir Meta, and stopping him from going to his office. Parliament made it clear in a vote a few months ago: The president has been caught in violation of the Constitution, and yesterday this was officially confirmed by the Constitutional Court.

The decision of the Constitutional Court clearly shows that the president has already been fired. He incited social conflict, even though he was a president elected to stay above the political parties, annulling the decree of the election date, when in fact he has no power to do so. And now in the next decision of the Constitutional Court, we will wait only for the confirmation of the dismissal of Ilir Meta as the President of the Republic./

SP has elections in the Albanian Football Federation!




There is nothing to be surprised about! The media publish the audio-tapping of the conversations of the mayor of Tirana, Edion Veliaj, which he doesn’t deny. There is nothing to be surprised about! There are elections in the Albanian Football Federation.

It is the last island not occupied by the Socialist Party. This institution is intended to be brought under control, with the argument that after 20 years Armando Duka should leave the leadership.

For this reason there is a scenario:A charlatan, ridiculous and disgusting candidate like Dritan Shakohoxha is placed in front of him, who will then leave, and Eduart Prodani will be placed in his place. A scheme built long ago by allegedly some personal enemies of Mr.Duka. But in fact, beyond the competition within the sport, the goal is the capture of the Albanian Football Federation by the Socialist Party. In the AFF, in the sector that the SP calls as its internal parts, there is a race.

But it is controlled by hostile groups, by people who don’t serve the Prime Minister Edi Rama for the interests of the latter, or the mayor of Tirana, or any quarrelsome like Erion Braçe who has long attacked Armando Duka.

Duka is not a “saint”. Maybe he is not wanted by everyone, but at least Duka is not a hostage of the government. He is not an instrument used by the SP. And as long as he is like that, it is better to stay Duka again, than any other person who would turn the Albanian Football Federation into a municipal directorate, or in any part of the government, where there would be daily intervention by Ëngjëll Agaçi, or other tools that Edi Rama uses to govern.

The Socialist Party has captured everything. With the last wiretapping we realized that SPAK also has it under its control. We also know that SP has the prosecution, the government in his hands, but he has taken the opposition hostage and uses Lulzim Basha as he pleases.

Now he has to take football as well, as other sports have no interest. The SP intends to win the elections in the Albanian Football Federation, that is why elections are taking place. Not to elect its president, but it is a battle for the SP to take over the president of the federation, in order for him to turn into a soldier of Edi Rama./




The new oligarch with 10 billion Lek / Lulzim Basha will increase his wealth with 4.7 million euros from albanian taxes




The dismissed chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha will benefit about 4.7 million euros, money which comes directly from the taxes of albanians citizen. A source close to Lulzim Basha’s family told that after the family tragedy, the death of Mr.Basha’s father-in-law a few days ago will be soon prepared all the legal documents of the inheritance of Xhaferr Isufi, Aurela’s father, Lulzim Basha’s wife.

The amount that Basha and his wife will benefit is at least 4.7 million euros, not counting here other inherited assets or available monetary values. According to the Albanian Civil Code, from article 316 to article 418 it is explained in detail how is passed the inheritance.

And in case Mr. Isufi has left a testament, Lulzim Basha benefits again, as he has space through “Legal Reserve” due to his minor girls. Another legal expert told that the value of 14 million euros obtained in the Strasbourg Court by the late Xhaferr Isufi, has not yet been paid by the government.

At the moment this amount will be disbursed according to law of the Albanian state, will pass to his wife and 2 children, respectively by about 4.7 million euros each. And it should be noted that this amount of money must be paid by the State Treasury from the taxes of albanians citizen.

An amount that is expected to bring Lulzim Basha’s wealth to a dizzying value, which can reach the value of 9 million dollars or 10 billion Lek. Lulzim Basha has currently declared wealth of almost 2 billion Lek or nearly 2 million dollars. With the taxes of albanians inherited from the trials of his late father-in-law, Lulzim Basha will soon be the youngest oligarch of Albania./

Incinerators, a corrupt affair that will be closed with a procedure, like the crimes of Lulzim Basha




It seems that the corrupt affair of the century, that of incinerators with a value of up to 430 million euros, will have the same fate as that of Lulzim Basha. Not because of losses, but because of victories through legal procedures.

The incinerator scandal has already led to the arrest of a former minister. And this only for the incinerator of Elbasan. So for one of the three investments of 178 million euros, and for the smallest of them that costs 22 million euros.

A corrupt affair, where Stela Gugallja was declared wanted by the police, as the owner of “Albtek Energy”, together with Klodian Zoto, who was also the builder of this incinerator through the company ITS, and was arrested the former Minister of Environment Lefter Koka, who has signed this concession.

But in the parliamentary inquiry commission set up 2 months ago, the socialists have made a clever political move, acknowledging the scandal but now demanding its closure. So, the three-month term of the parliamentary investigation ends on January 28th.

In fact, from December 7 of last year, until two days ago, ie until January 18 of this year, ie about 1 and a half months, the investigative commission on incinerator concessions has not conducted any investigation.

State institutions have returned an evasive response, using legal space to not provide complete information with justifications such as “there is sensitive data, there are personal details”. Thus, the second tier banks didn’t provide any data regarding the amounts that have been spent.

Even the Tax Directorate has not provided information on payments. Thus, they have hidden every trace and by not giving the investigative commission the opportunity to have the data in hand to make analyzes or to come to a conclusion regarding the corrupt affair of the century.

On the other hand, it was Jorida Tabaku, the leader of this commission, who slept like Lulzim Basha or has bargained with Edi Rama. For about a month and a half she has put the commission to sleep, not doing any work.

Justifying that they were waiting for official documents or answers, most of which came without any answer, without any content, or with a formal correct answer regarding the questions addressed, the term of this commission is now coming to an end.

This happens next week and it all ends. So the socialists will close the investigation with procedure, using the legal deadline of 3 months, that usually has an investigation commission. This clearly shows an agreement of Lulzim Basha with Edi Rama, as Jorida Tabaku has wasted half of the time. On the other hand, the government and his subordinate institutions have not provided the necessary information and everything is closing with a procedure. This is what happened to Lulzim Basha, in more than one case.

This is what happened to Basha over the investigation of 1.25 million dollars, paid to the company of lobbyist Nick Muzin in the USA. The investigation was closed again with procedure. The same happened with the investigation on the abuses during the construction of the Nation Road.

A report by the Supreme State Audit Office spoke of abuses in the amount of 230 million euros. Lulzim Basha has always escaped justice through proceedings. The only hope remains with SPAK. This institution has arrested a former minister only for the Elbasan incinerator. Meanwhile, another prosecutor, Dritan Prençi, is investigating the files of incinerators in Fier and Tirana. But it remains to be seen, because Prençi is also moving at a slow pace./
