What you have defeated three times, you can always defeat

Lulzim Basha, the chairman of the Democratic Party, without counting the elections for local government in 2019, where the opposition refused to enter, was defeated for the third time. The third truth - say the people. April 25 marked the third defeat for Lulzim Basha, which was his biggest and last in politics. The victory of Prime Minister Edi Rama was great, because he faced all the other political forces of the country as well as the institution of the President, who was the fiercest and most irresistible opposition in the election campaign. An important chapter was closed for the political parties on April 25 and the winner was the Albanian people, so the opposition must accept the defeat with dignity. But even in the last appearance before the public, when most of the results had come out and the trend of counting the votes clearly showed the defeat of the opposition, he did not accept any responsibility and made Edi Rama guilty again, threatening that "we will rise stronger on the road to victory". If you can do it three times, it is difficult and futile to ask for more. Whoever can beat you three times in a row, can always beat you, so it is useless to engage and take part in new battles. If you claim to win and threaten the opponent when you are lying down and exhausted, the people will compare him to the villain of the village joke, whom the strong man had thrown to the ground and every time he shot him, he would shout "bring and once without seeing it. So Lulzim Basha does not stand up anymore. This is clear to everyone already in the DP, even those who follow him more for mercy than to see in him the leader for victory. Those who have asked Lulzim Basha to resign, are among the most powerful voices in the DP, starting from the former president Nishani, the chairman of the National Council and chairman of the verification of candidacies for deputies to former DP chairmen in the district branches. "Today is the moment for the Democratic Party to get rid of the example of incompetence and the model that is destroying it little by little. Today is the moment for the Democratic Party to be left free to rise to the greatness that belongs to it as the Party of Freedom and Youth. Today the main perpetrator of four political losses in a row, decided to hold the House of Freedom hostage in the interest of his personal power!

What were Basha's shortcomings in this campaign as well? The loss started with the compilation of the lists, where Basha, although democratically, allegedly set up a commission to verify those candidates based on the principle "one member, one vote", vetoed arrogantly, not only confirming figures that the party base does not voted for them, but appointed candidates and members of the commission in open conflict of interest. The disregard of the leading structures of the Democratic Party, clearly showed that Basha was possessed by a kind of delirium that "he had the victory in his pocket". Secondly, most importantly, Basha failed to create the spirit to achieve what he has been claiming for months, change. Basha roamed the cities and villages euphoric, "riding the horse of the wind", appearing feverish with pathetic statements that everywhere he saw in the eyes of Albanians change. But the Albanians showed that they felt good about the government of Edi Rama and did not need the change that Basha would bring them, along with the suite that pushed him from behind. Prime Minister Edi Rama has modestly stated that "we are not the best, but currently there is no better than us". We say that Edi Rama's victory is not based only on the fact that he is facing a very weak opposition, but also on the many things that his government has done for the benefit of Albanians and the country. Albanians clearly understood that indeed with Lulzim Basha they could undergo a change, but a change to go back and not to move forward. And this happens in the first place also for the fact that Basha has not held any responsibility, did not make any criticism about his dark past and the party he leads. Third, Basha and his allies, were arrogant and disregarding in violation of the rules of anticovid protection. Filling the streets and squares with militants, crowds that were not difficult to gather even the smallest party, Basha was bloated and delirious for a great victory, without having the sensitivity that the victims were fleeing to hospitals every day. Embracing the old woman he met on the street and slapping the shoulders of businessmen, farmers and traders who came forward with servility, Basha boasted with two fingers up, shouting loudly: “Victory is with us. "People want change." Fourth, Basha and his team flooded towns and villages, blackening everything good in Rama's government. People who had eyes to see, put their tongues out from behind Basha, when he spoke about the total failure of the "incumbent Prime Minister" Rama. So cynical was the campaign of Basha and his team, that not only did they not say a good word about Rama's obvious work, they also created "Babale" type videos to refute the good results of this government in dealing with the consequences of the earthquake and the pandemic by vaccinating in record time the categories that were first endangered by the virus. In this context, Lulzim Basha focused all his targets on Prime Minister Rama and the slander of the Renaissance, zeroing everything. Basha pretended not to understand that behind Edi Rama there was a large army of socialists, with consolidated structures, with idealistic leaders and patronagers who had constantly stood close to the people and knocked on doors, consciously and sincerely asking for the vote. every citizen. Another big minus of Basha's campaign, it was not only Berisha's inclusion in the list of winning candidates, but also the establishment of so-called armed vote protection structures, which was never heard of. And this was not a mistake of any political leader of a special region like Elbasan, but a strategy to win by force. This led to the murder of a citizen in Elbasan and had to be followed conscientiously by Xhelal Mziu in Debar, but he quickly withdrew due to international pressure. Even more ridiculous were the statements made by Basha and several other opposition figures, including President Meta, hours after the polls closed and during the counting days. Boasting about exit polls, they declared victory by enthusiastically cheering all the militants and vote-protection structures. But when the counting began, they, seeing the tender that was in favor of the SP, began to make sophisticated statements that: "No, the boxes, bastions of the SP are being counted selectively", "The victory of the opposition is certain, the people have voted for change" , "We have an increase in unit 10" even though in this unit until then the SP led with about a thousand votes. Wanting to ignore the work of the political leader, Taulant Balla in the district of Elbasan, various exponents of the DP cited as an example the loss in a deep municipality that did not lift any weight, and finally closed their mouths when they saw that the candidate Balla was leading nationally winning candidates for the result achieved in these elections. The whole campaign of Edi Rama was not poetry, but a carefully written prose, a laid-back, honest and correct communication with people. The symbolism of Zaho in Vlora, was raised over the deafening trumpets of the SMI around his apartment in Surrel. Who is SP and Edi Rama best showed the seriousness and correctness of his statement after the closing of the voting, as well as his sensitive and not at all euphoric speech on the day of the victory celebration in Skanderbeg Square. A leader like Rama who works gradually with the security of victory, has no reason to scream and beat his chest in front of the opponent. "The empty container makes a lot of noise," says Balzac. Basha was already proven who he was and who he is, it was proved that the DP still has a communist leadership mentality, which appeared even that night in front of its headquarters, where a group of militants shouted as in the '90s "under communism". So the DP should look to find another leader,
