It seems that no one lives and lives in the Democratic Party, except Lulzim Basha. He speaks, he assembles, he gathers, he dismisses, he decides, he proposes, he fights and he accuses. It seems like that whole party is taking on his physiognomy and vices. Lulzim’s proposals total 11, are nothing but the expansion of powers and narrowing the “loop” for “enemies”.
Restriction of freedom, opposition and free speech, and the “summing up” of all competencies in the hands of one man. And this is Lulzim Basha. The (un) re-elected chairman of the DP. He piano-piano, is sniffing that party. He has extinguished the voices, the spirit, the faith, the hope, he has turned off everything that was and he was on fire to some extent. And in the midst of these problems, without removing the biggest problem, that of staying in opposition for a long time, Luli remembers in the heat of July, to invent 11 “new” proposals. They seem fixed as “Mao Zedong’s proposals or quotations for the beginning of the cultural revolution.”
The policy and opposition that President Basha is trying to do through “new structures”, is his effort and determination to totally crush that party. To put him completely under his feet and his dictation, so that in future losses, no one will have the mouth and courage to point the finger at the mayor, but at the “traitors and traitors”. By dividing the National Council into Departments, by predetermining the latter “statutory duties and obligations”, or by reconceptualizing the Executive Secretariat of the Party, Lulzim Basha has not forgotten to “reformat the Permanent Statute Commission”.
That Statute of the Democratic Party, which has made it as many times as it wanted. In Luli’s office, there are the names of those who will be part of the new party structures, all new “blood” with an old mentality. Removing the voices against with pleasure, Lulzim Basha has the luxury today to reign for a long time as chairman of that party, leaving no one to disturb his comfort. It seems that today, after 30 years, in the Democratic Party, things have gone against what was and was in the program, that right-wing party. Impulsivity, dissent and intellectual thinking have been lost, the basic element of free speech, criticism, self-criticism has been lost, no article of the party’s Statute is applied.
All the attention is “what the mayor thinks and what he says” or “how the mayor expects a different opinion, maybe he does not like your reaction”. Everyone other than Luli in the Democratic Party is “imprisoned” and forced to accept with full conviction the verdict of the mayor. The unexpected behavior of 11 “Basha” proposals come a few days after the proposals made by his former rival for the post of mayor Mr. Kadilli. Definitely someone has encouraged him, someone has told him “come up with new proposals”, but forgetting that those of President Basha do not arouse interest and do not bring transformation and innovation in the reorganization of that political force.
The humble voting of the “Basha” proposals and the ignoring of the proposals of Kadilli or anyone else, shows how powerless the internal factor is in that party. Luli has already turned the Democratic Party into an experimental plot, where everything he does is calculated to serve him tomorrow for personal interests. As for her future, Luli is convinced that only with “sleep” can she change the fate of the DP.
