Change comes when most people demand it

Change comes when most people demand it

The whole motive of the April 25 election campaign made by Lulzim Basha and other opposition leaders roaming in every corner of Albania, was that they "would make the difference" that they "saw the change in the eyes of every citizen" and that the people "were eager for change." Basha met people of different ages and professions, talked to businessmen and ordinary traders, spoke on television and debated with professors and analysts and never uttered the phrase "change is coming". The same thing was stated by Monika: “There is nothing that saves Edi Rama from punishment. The dissatisfaction of the people is so great that there is nothing to stop the change. "There is nothing to stop the opposition, because the desire of the people for change is so great that the mafia of Edi Rama will be dissolved like morning dew before the massive vote of the people." "April 25 will be a referendum against the clippocracy, the state of violence and the sold ambassadors", declared the President of the Republic, Ilir Meta. Yes, the elections passed, were certified by all legal bodies within the country as well as by international organizations and the "change" was not done as Basha, Iliri, Monika and Berisha wanted. And it will never be done in the form and with the means required by the Albanian opposition, as long as it has this leadership at its head. Even during the campaign for chairman of the Democratic Party, Basha again with an incredible statement says that "we will remove this obstacle that has temporarily stopped the change. "Very soon with the free vote we will overthrow the Rama-Doshi regime". With these statements Basha is confused and contradicts his practice as a politician. What free votes is Basha talking about, when he in his party has never won honestly and the opponents within the party who accuse him with facts of manipulation even in the June 13 elections are numerous. When the opposition steals each other's votes in the party and has turned manipulation into a profession, how can the people trust them that they can honestly take power. Basha daily calls for the overthrow of the regime "Rama Doshi", who ultimately won the governing mandate with the vote of the people and Doshi after pressure withdrew from the mandate as the winner, while Berisha declared "non grata" by the US, is member of the parliamentary group of the party led by Basha. For many reasons, Basha can never remove Berisha, because he himself has sworn by Hygo's verses: "Even if one remains, he will be me." But why was there no "referendum" on April 25 against Edi Rama and a sold-out "slap for ambassadors"? Because the people feel good, they are satisfied with what they have and above all they understood that whatever it means "change" being in power Sali Berisha, Lulzim Basha and Ilir Meta, who have already been tried the best who they are. And why didn't the failed opposition accuse Edi Rama ?! That "it has doubled its foreign debt", that "there is corruption with incinerators", that "it has sold the sea to the Greeks", that "it has increased unemployment and militancy in the administration", that "it has filled the country with drugs", that it is campaigning. with the disasters of the earthquake and the pandemic ", that" he is connected and serves the oligarchs ", that" he has seized all the power "and dozens of other accusations like these. But the elections took place and again the people voted for Edi Rama, giving him the third governing mandate for the first time in the history of Albanian pluralism. Didn't the people see or understand these "mistakes" and "crimes" of Edi Rama's government? "People live in poverty where the state of Edi Rama is immersed, but their votes were stolen", is the answer of all those who want to justify the perversion of the opposition and the lack of governing alternative of Lul Basha and other leaders of PD. If Edi Rama's government was so bad that "most have no bread to eat", the votes against him would be "mountain" and there would be no theft and manipulation to keep Edi Rama in power. Worse, this was the third term required by Edi Rama, the government would be over-consumed and poverty would have deepened. But the reality speaks differently and Albanians have eyes and ears to properly appreciate this reality they live. Are Albanians satisfied, rich and no longer claim for a bigger change and have no demands for more !? No, there are many problems, there are worries and concerns, but in general the people live better and no comparison can be made with the past, counting here even when the PD ruled. Most families, especially in Tirana, can be said to lead a good life, have a moderately satisfactory standard of living. Rarely does a family find a homeless car, not counting that there are families where each adult member has his or her own car. You can no longer find families without a TV and most have a TV in every room. Almost all family members, even children, hold cell phones in their hands. This is an indicator I see in the neighborhood where I live, in the school where I work, in my native village where I have relatives, on the outskirts of the capital, where I have friends and acquaintances. "We Albanians are very poor," said one day a neighbor of mine, introducing himself to the poor. "Most do not have bread to eat." This expression "most have no bread to eat" sounds very archaic, as self-victimization in front of those who have become richer and comes as an inherited echo from the first years after liberation. -Why do you introduce yourself to the poor? - I replied. What do you miss from the basic items at home? I see myself every day in the bars, the children work, you have made the house new, you have completed it with all the right furniture. You have a car, all your family members have cell phones, you have a new house, so you complain in vain. Look at the premises, - I continued - every day, from breakfast to dinner he finds them full, mixed of all ages. Those who do not have "bread" do not stay in bars all day, but seek and track the money to buy the bread they do not have, as you say. I am mentioning Saturdays and Sundays, when the most luxurious places are full, so that you do not find a place to sit, if you have not booked in advance. And this happens not only in the premises inside Tirana, but also outside it. I was surprised by a friend of mine, whom I knew to lead an average life, when he told me that usually on Saturdays they went and ate lunch with their family in Struga or St. Naum. "These are a minority" - another will continue to justify. Of course they are not the majority, but you can not call them a minority. Look at the buses and in the middle of the day, full, they go to TEG, QTU, Caza Italia etc. Where do these people go in the middle of the day, at the peak of working hours? Look at the dwelling houses, all the buildings are almost new, few can catch the eye of any old old and incomplete. Look at Sauk, Fresk, Shkoza, Kombinat, Kashar, Mullet, Kërraba, Kamza, Bathore and the simple houses, or you will look for the huts by candlelight and you will automatically ask where are those who "have no bread to eat". Of course, there are also poor people for various reasons, because there are poor people in America, Italy and France, countries with social welfare consolidated for decades. Even among Albanians, poverty exists for many reasons, due to illness, lack of family labor, very weak family heritage, which make it possible for family income to be below the subsistence level. But let us not forget that even for these there are businessmen, charities, benevolent and generous individuals who improve their livelihood by helping them, even managing to build their houses from scratch. If the people live badly economically, it rises in revolt and the popular revolt has no force in the state to stop it. Can Berisha's state stop the popular revolt that erupted after losing money to pyramid schemes? He was completely powerless even though he put in action the blind armed militants, the police, the SHIK, even the army. Edi Rama's state, although with acceptable mistakes, has been strengthening in all its elements inside the country and increasing its authority in the outside world. This is shown by the assessment that the US and European chancelleries make of its policy, shows the fact of the assessment of the efforts made by Albania for the preservation of the status quo in the Balkans, the admission of Albania as an Interim member in the UN Security Commission and finally showed more clearly the consent of the most skeptical countries for the opening of negotiations for in the EU. That the people live well and do not need the change offered by Lul Basha, is confirmed by the people themselves. If the people have come to the tip of their noses, they stand up for themselves and that they can hold on, no longer calling on them.
