The voter waits for you by the clothes and follows you by the mind

The verdict of the people has already been given: the left will rule us for another 4 years. That of continuity. Those who waited for the rotation just because such a phenomenon occurs in America and hoped to be copied here as well, will continue to be in the trenches of the opposition in the future, to find new ways to come to power. If they find them, otherwise they will be subject to the dream of Edi Rama who said that he will stay in the chair of the prime minister until 2029. Pure democracy does not accept this dream of the current prime minister, because we are going through a dictatorship, but also the change does not come because one has a desire, but is the product of a strong political struggle and at the same time the result of the consumption of power for the ruling political force, but also through the unveiling of a winning platform by those seeking to come to power. Not as it happened in this election campaign where the current prime minister showed the achievements of his government and the opposition sharpened their forks and signed fictitious contracts with different social strata, as if he were in the prime minister's office. Edi Rama reflected in every day of the campaign an Olympic calm and was in the mood even when faced with very quarrelsome and very provocative political opponents. Meanwhile, political opponents were nervous even when they were alone in the stands or on very benevolent TV screens. Two details for concretization from both camps. When Fevziu told me with his lips from the satisfaction that the majority of militants had gone to Surrel with trumpets, Rama calmly said: how good it is to give the chronicle, to watch and convince the Albanians who they will be with, with us or with ata. In almost every press conference that you can not judge only as professionals, the president thickened his voice and strongly emphasized the plebiscite right of the people that if he did not win, he should sharpen his forks and axes. Now that so many days have passed that are enough to restore calm, which can anger the losers, the disparity between the parties in the campaign is more clearly discernible. Not counting the already 30-year-old disease of Albanian politics, not recognizing the result by the defeated. By this we do not claim that the election was perfect. They carry their own problems, but at least in general appearance we can say that they were the best possible in these 30 years. The allegations of vote buying are bilateral and they are expected to be confirmed by the competent authorities. Why they are reciprocal does not mean compromise and silence, but rather, to discover the truth, to receive the deserved punishment of the perpetrators to be minimized in the future. There are a hundred and one reasons why the voter voted for the Socialists and just as many reasons why they rejected the grand coalition of right and left made together. There are so many arguments Edi Rama to wear the halo of victory and opponents have more excuses to cover the loss. But now that the start is closed, it is important for everyone to get their own trench and start the road to victory in the next election. I will not deal with the level of candidates presented by the parties in this campaign, nor with the political arguments they brought as a winning alternative, nor with the amount spent by all actors, but I would like to see this campaign in the visual presentation of the three main protagonists. (I say three because we would label the presidential couple as one). There is a very significant expression of our people as they emphasize that "you expect the friend from the clothes he is wearing and follow from the mind that he tells you". Edi Rama in all the meetings he held, even the mass ones, never appeared dressed as a "race politician", but as a controversial painter. Never with a suit and collar, but with t-shirts and shirts that he changed from time to time. But at every meeting he brought fresh oratory. Make the most of the ability to distinguish yourself from others. Even two hours of talking he did not return to repetition. He supported the campaign with two weapons that proved victorious to him: highlighting the government's achievements and stigmatizing opponents. But with finesse and humor that was very close to the listeners. But most importantly, calm. Even when he raised his voice there was no anger in him. He spoke as confidently in victory as he did for the doubters and the dissatisfied. He did not even bother to make jokes with those Democrats who openly provoked him. So he entered the campaign with a pot and came out victorious. This did not happen with the Meta-Basha duo. They never separated themselves from the classic outfit and changed costumes on every TV show. But their vocabulary was very dry. The president, overwhelmed with anger, especially towards the prime minister, articulated only 5 words in every conversation: April 25, the plebiscite of the people, we will cut off our hands, sharpen our forks, the Constitution and the memory and threat of repeating last March 2. Remaining a slave to only these phrases not only did not arouse any optimism for the voters, but had the opposite effect: they in a plebiscite manner (since the president loved the word so much) said no to him and his wife Monica who had dreamed of 34 deputies. of her party. It was not only this vocabulary of voters against the president, but also his own behavior, especially this last 4 years, but also all the accusations that have been made against him over the years. Also going back and forth from one city to another, especially the movements at night and in dubious dwellings were a big minus for him. Particularly open conflict with the country's prime minister, sometimes even invented, affected the sentencing of voters against him. I have to say with pain that the president has reduced his figure more after the elections when at least he did not resign as he had stated many times in the campaign, if Rama won 71 deputies. The numbers seem to be confusing, because the victory is already with 74 deputies. The situation is almost the same with the chairman of the opposition, Lulzim Basha. He too entered the campaign arrogant and stubborn. But even the one with very limited vocabulary. What he remembers are the phrases "I am the prime minister of April 26", "the first decree he will sign as prime minister…" and especially the foolishness in signing contracts with various associations. If you study Basha's vocabulary lexically, you will notice that the sum of the words used by him does not exceed the figure 30. And the worst thing is that in these 30 words there were so many false promises that convinced the voter to leave Lulzim Basha in opposition for another 4 years, to mature or to burn. The leader of the opposition, like the president, entered the campaign as arrogant "captors", but came out with the shame of losing. The Albanian voter has already reached the maturity for a credible vote and does not forget the centuries-old customs: he welcomes you according to the clothes you wear, but follows you according to the mind you have.
