DASH, according to activist Gjergj Bojaxhi, has given the decision non grata late for former Prime Minister Sali Berisha.
As he said in the show “Arnautistan” on MCN TV, Albanian citizens voted Berisha out of government in 2013 because of the perception of corruption.
He added that what he does not like about this story is the fact that the Americans have penetrated so deeply into the political and justice issues in Albania.
“In 2013, Albanian voters gave their verdict on who Berisha was. In the 8 years he was prime minister, Albania had economic development, jobs and public investments were made and the citizens voted him out of power not because he did not work, but because of the perception of corruption, so removing Berisha from power was an act that Albanian citizens did for this reason.
I focused more on corruption, but citizens are also based on autocratic elements, so in one sense Americans are eight years behind.
They would have been best friends if they had done this 8 years ago. What I did not like was that this is not a foreign policy standard. The fact that the Americans have penetrated so deeply into political and justice issues in Albania is not in the normal aspect of the DASH and they need to be more careful and calibrated.
It is not that they removed an authoritarian peron and chose an angel, but we have fallen from rain to hail. I think that in conditions when we have an even higher level of corruption, it would be worthwhile for the justice system to strike. “Hitting someone who is doing this today is functional justice”, said Bojaxhi.
