There could be up to 300 incompetent bureaucrats, corrupted people that were appointed politically, who hold high administrative offices or are part of the judicial system. We are all witness to the fact that this government has huge problems that must be immediately resolved using clear legal criteria, accepted by everybody. But, there is one […]

The Opposition between Mistakes and Millions

The Opposition between Mistakes and Millions

The last three days can be considered the worst days for the Democratic Party. I recall that in the most challenging years 1997 or ’98 and 2001, there were still more supporters going about aimlessly in the halls or offices of the party’s headquarters, whining because communists had regained power with a revolution. In the past, […]

Edi Rama’s Calculations and Ilir Meta’s Anger

Edi Rama’s Calculations and Ilir Meta’s Anger

Not even Lulzim Basha’s somewhat changing position on whether he will govern together with Edi Rama has not calmed down the open and almost violent conflict between the militants of the Socialist Party (PS) and the Socialist Movement for Integration (LSI). The word “alliance” does not unite the two parties even in their wildest dreams, and they are […]

Rama as Hostage

Rama as Hostage

It is not the first time that Edi Rama and Ilir Meta roll up their sleeves and declare an open war to one another. There are even those who say that it won’t be their last time in the political battlefield, which is actually in the culminating point of the electoral campaign dominated by the news […]

The Charmless Young Deputies That Fill Up Candidate Lists

The Charmless Young Deputies That Fill Up Candidate Lists

The new names appearing on the lists of deputies running for each party in June’s elections arouse the public’s curiosity. After the exhaustion felt by the current political class and given the young age of these new candidates, there are high hopes that something good could happen. Have these young people earned their trust to become future leaders […]

The Closing Chapter of the Democratic Party

The Closing Chapter of the Democratic Party

For those who have some knowledge about the Democratic Party, it is very clear that the lists of candidates for deputy have never been discussed in the party forums, even formally. Topalli, Bodi, Imami, and Patozi were always present in Berisha’s office, to give a final opinion on the chosen names. This foursome, together with Majlinda […]

What Went Unsaid at the Meeting between Rama and Basha

What Went Unsaid at the Meeting between Rama and Basha

Ninety days and several international representatives, who visited Albania one after the other, weren’t enough to reach this highly anticipated agreement between Edi Rama and Lulzim Basha. Both showed, yesterday and today, a willingness to budge from their early convictions in order to reach an agreement, while being present together in the same office. They […]

Opposition Trio without a Cause

Opposition Trio without a Cause

Synchronizing their announcement the last few days for “something big” that would shake the PD, and one day before the EU will respond to the position of the PD (as pro-government media report), Eduart Selami and Majlinda Bregu have publicly articulated what for a long time they have uselessly tried to sell as a position […]

The Last Hours of the Political Crisis

The Last Hours of the Political Crisis

The strong earthquake that shook Albania on Saturday afternoon remains the main news of a weekend in which we were expecting new developments in the solution of the political crisis. But neither Rama’s declarations from Shkodra, nor those of Basha from the protest tent managed to give an answer to whether there will be elections […]
