Inside the Democratic Party has begun a battle, where the historical leader Sali Berisha, has announced a movement, which he calls “Rostrum”, where he is gathering city by city militants of the Democratic Party and its structures. A move like never before, which Lulzim Basha has never made.

Although Berisha is 77 years old, he seems full of energy, active and tireless, and has started a movement that no one expected, and everyone is surprised. Even the most pessimistic, or even his opponents, including those who may hate Berisha, are now saying:”He is tireless, unrepeatable in his kind”, and they call him a political animal.

“Rostrum” has revealed that the majority of Democratic Party supports Berisha. Basha was left alone in the office, with a small group of people, not even 10 people, included all those in the parliamentary group and in the leadership of the party.

He is making confused moves, has problems with structures, conflicts with the DP Youth Forum, expels branch presidents, and is trying to maintain party leadership with many silly, ridiculous, weightless characters in politics and brought by him in the DP, but which have nothing to do with the base.

Some of Lulzim Basha’s supporters have a thesis:The “hypocrisy” of Sali Berisha. And some who consider themselves intellectuals raise also a question:Which Sali Berisha should we trust, the one who supported Basha yesterday, or the one who attacks Basha today?

Which Berisha to believe, what he said that Basha has done all the good for Albania and the DP, or what he says now that Basha is the main culprit who has destroyed the party and led it from loss to loss. For all those who raise doubts, the analysis is quite simple.

It is true, Sali Berisha has supported Lulzim Basha for everything. He took him out of the way in 2005, put him in the DP, gave him the direction of the Policy Orientation Committee, and made him a minister three times. And despite the successive scandals, Lulzim Basha “grew”” in the DP ranks, became mayor, where he failed, and it was Berisha’s insistence that put him in 2013 at the head of the Democratic Party.

Basha could have probably won even without Berisha’s intervention against Olldashi. Because he was the mayor of Tirana, and we had earlier a similar move by Edi Rama when he took over the SP in 2005. But Berisha supported him, and he probably had his mistakes when he re-supported Basha in the latter’s decisions in the 2017 elections.

In fact, Lulzim Basha’s advisers asked him at the time to remove Berisha from the DP, and emerge as a leader over him. Basha didn’t do so, but eliminated all of Berisha’s associates, removing them from the list of deputies and attacking them through the media he controlled.

He started the attacks with Majlinda Bregu, then with Ridvan Bode, Jozefina Topalli, Astrit Patozi and so on. But they were not the only ones. The blows continued at the base against the chairmen of the DP branches, the leaders of the sections, etc. Berisha supported Lulzim Basha even after losing the 2017 elections.

Perhaps he was convinced that after 8 years in opposition the DP would surely rise to power. The position of the SMI against the Socialists, prompted Berisha to hope that after 4 years, ie this year Basha could become prime minister. But Basha’s actions turned out to be very problematic.

Since the burning of mandates, the boycott of local elections and so on. The battles left in the middle, from Nation Road to the New Ring, National Theater. Clashes, lost battles, empty threats. Berisha supported all these. But also many people in the DP. The essence of a political force is that the majority decides there.

But Basha didn’t decide with the majority or ask her opinion. Only after making his own decisions, he sought the support of the majority. Berisha has supported his actions. But the latter didn’t want the burning of mandates. He was the first to emphasize that the path of burning mandates is a dead end, which could lead to the overthrow of the DP.

This was heard by almost 40 deputies present at the meeting of the parliamentary group.

Now I have an answer for those who say what changed from Berisha’s point of view. Indeed, nothing has changed in Berisha. Lulzim Basha had to “kill|” politically, and Sali Berisha say stop. He tolerated many things, until he finally got the knife behind his back from Basha.

In fact the latter did nothing but an act of betrayal. Now there is a question for all those who say: Which Berisha should we believe? That yesterday or today? Which of these political analysts who support Lulzim Basha today, which of the politicians who are next to Basha, wouldn’t do what Sali Berisha is doing today after what happened?

A famous proverb says that only the fool and the dead don’t change their minds. And no one probably thinks that Sali Berisha is stupid, nor dead. He is full of energy, and he is there in the “Rostrum”. A “Rostrum”, where in addition to DP militants, there are hundreds of young people, who give with courage their ideas.

There people are talking and telling some truths. Berisha says what he thinks, the citizens say the problems that has the opposition, exactly those mentioned by the gray part of the electorate, and that is why they didn’t vote DP. Therefore, all those who are in the dilemma of which Berisha to believe, yesterday or today, should believe that of yesterday for what it was yesterday.

Today we are in another time with completely new facts and circumstances, with a Lulzim Basha who has killed the Democratic Party, who has betrayed all Democrats, and time has proved this. Berisha couldn’t say in 2013 that Basha is a traitor, as he was raising him in politics, he was his political son.

Now that he has seen what Lulzim Basha has done, it is fair to say that he has been taken hostage by Prime Minister Rama, and that is Berisha’s right. How right he is, is shown by the meetings, the people, the support and the enthusiasm. He has publicly admitted that he was wrong, apologizing for the support he has given to Basha.

Therefore, Sali Berisha is in all his political right to speak what he thinks, to carry out his political action, to hit Lulzim Basha, even to expell him from the Democratic Party. This is one more reason to respond to those skeptics, or those who want to raise alibis, that Berisha has a personal intention.

Even for personal purposes, which of those removed by Lulzim Basha, which of those inside the DP, had the strength, argument or support that Sali Berisha has in the Democratic Party? Indisputably no one. Everyone tried, and all failed. Topalli, Patozi failed. They ran in the elections with their own parties.

The two together didn’t get more than 15.000 votes. While Sali Berisha alone is taken the whole party, and Basha is left with only a handful of people. Everyone can change after seeing and trying. And Lulzim Basha was seen, tried and failed.

Sali Berisha suffered it himself, and there is already a completely fair public reaction, and here there is no hypocrisy from Berisha at all. But there are facts and only facts. Lulzim Basha failed and must leave from DP./

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./
