After waiting several weeks to receive proposals for possible statutory changes, the Standing Committee in the DP on this issue will meet today to review the three proposals.
In addition to the draft of Lulzim Basha and Fatbardh Kadilli, which have already been made public, the draft of tenor Rudi Sata has arrived at the table of the group with 9 members.
“On Wednesday, July 14, 2021, at 11:00, the meeting of the Standing Statutory Commission will take place, to express its opinion on the proposals that will come until Tuesday, July 13, 2021, by members of the Commission, member of the Presidency, Chairman of the Party, member of the National Council, or local structures of the Party “, announced a few days ago the general secretary of the Democratic Party, the members of the commission. Meanwhile, only one day later, exactly on Thursday, the Presidency of the Democratic Party will convene, which will be acquainted with the analysis of the elections that has been done in 12 constituencies and the list of candidates for the National Council.
The leader of the Democratic Party proposes a more extended chairman, where the chairman of the National Council will be a member due to the function he holds. “The leadership of the party has been expanded, including as its members due to the function also the chairman of the National Council; the chairman of the Financial Board, the chairman of the Election Commission and the chairman of the Appeals, Integrity and Ethics Commission. Also, the rule has been added that not less than 30% of the elected members of the presidency belong to the less represented gender “, it is said in Basha’s proposal. According to this proposal, Arben Ristani, another Basha critic of losing the parliamentary elections, will also be in charge.
Ristani holds the position of chairman of the Appeals, Integrity and Ethics Committee in the Democratic Party. But Basha includes Jemin Gjana in the Presidency because of the position he holds, who is the chairman of all election commissions in the Democratic Party since Basha leads this party. As an opposition party, the DP chairman seems likely to include as many of its personalities as possible in the party’s governing bodies. In this position, Basha proposes that the number of secretaries not be limited, but be in the hands of the mayor to determine the number he needs. “The Executive Secretariat of the Party has been reconceptualized, removing the limit number of functional secretaries in its composition. This rule has been extended to the party branches as well “, proposes Basha.
