Sali Berisha without a mandate after June 21, the victory of the stamp of the DP like that of Pirros of Epirus, Argita takes the reins of the Democratic Party and excludes the group of Basha from the union

Sali Berisha without a mandate after June 21, the victory of the stamp of the DP

There is no more dilemma. Sali Berisha has already managed to "steal" the seal and logo of the Democratic Party, while his daughter, Argita, seems to have taken over the leadership of the DP, as her increased prominence shows. The seal of the Democratic Party finally passed to the group led by Sali Berisha and Rithemelimi. Two days ago, the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the First Instance of judge Agron Zhukri to recognize Berisha's Democratic Party and the Assembly of December 11, 2021 as a legitimate party. This decision was enthusiastically welcomed by Sali Berisha, who declared " non-grata" from the United States of America and Great Britain. This gift that was given to Sali Berisha at a broken physical and mental age, clearly shows that he is making his perhaps last life effort to return to the political scene, abusing in the worst way those who are behind him, lied that he is returning to politics for the good of the country. But the truth is quite different: with his latest move, he is trying to wash his face blackened by the accusations of corruption raised by the Special Prosecutor's Office (SPAK), as well as by London and Washington who have sanctioned him. And in the end, even if he didn't succeed, since after June 21, he is in danger of losing his mandate as a member of parliament, because it has been 6 months since he went to the Assembly, the Democratic Party will most likely inherited by his daughter. Taking control of the Democratic Party and catapulting Argita Malltez to its head can be seen by former Prime Minister Berisha as a success, because in the country of Albanians and eagles everything is possible, but in the history of the nation his victory will could be called the "Victory of Pyrrhus" (The victory of Pyrrhus means heavy sacrifices. In the battle that took place next at Heraclea near Tarentum (280 BC) Pyrrhus of Epirus faced a Roman army twice as large outnumbered his army and emerged victorious. But he lost so many officers and soldiers that he cried: "One more battle like this and I must return to Epirus alone." Hence the expression "Victory like Pyrrhus".)

Argita's catapult at the head of the DP

However, Sali Berisha has spoken several times about her daughter's political engagement and has always argued that two members of the same family cannot be in the party. But the situation has changed. He is isolated and in a matter of days he risks losing his mandate, since he has not been to the Assembly for 6 months. He also risks being left out of the 2025 elections, because he is being investigated for corruption by SPAK. So, faced with this situation, it seems that Argita Berisha has appeared on stage again. Unlike other times, she has openly said this time that she will try to take the reins of DP if Berisha remains out of the 2025 elections. "Sali Berisha has his function and it is understood that two members of the same family cannot have prominent activism," she said in an interview. Mirwpo Argita has been seen in the protests in front of the Tirana Municipality and the Assembly and it seems that she is not satisfied with the way things are going in the party. "More needs to be done to inspire people who are not engaged," she said. So it seems that the messages are clear. Unlike many people in Berisha's and Bardhi's group who dream of becoming the head of the party and why not run for Prime Minister, Berisha actually has something else in mind. For this party he has killed, beaten, stolen, cut and what not. For this reason, he cannot leave it in the hands of Bardhi or Salianj. After the arrest, Argita began to appear in public and that was the first signal. Now there is no doubt. Even if the Court does not stop it, it is likely that Berisha is heading for political withdrawal and Argita has openly said that the moment her father is no longer there, she will enter the game.

Argita Malltezi reacts

Meanwhile, to show that she will take the helm of the Democratic Party, Mrs. Malltezi closed the door of the DP to Lulzim Basha and his group, who during a statement to the media, after the Appeal decision that gave Sali Berisha the seal, accused them of the destruction of the party. "I think that PD has always invited for unification. The doors are open to every democrat. Basha has no contribution for this day, he has contributed to the capture of the opposition and its destruction over the years. Mistakes should not be forgotten, otherwise they are repeated. I think he has closed every door to himself", said Malltezi. Asked if after this Berisha should leave as the head of the DP and make way for her race at the head of the DP, she answered that: "I have been part of the DP since '90. Centrists don't fight back once they've won a battle. We won a battle, we have more battles to win until we win the war, which is the overthrow of Rama. After that, Berisha said a referendum for prime minister". Without hiding his emotions about the return of the PD seal, Malltezi said that this is a decision of a justice that reflects normality, despite other decisions, for which she stands by the statements for the court caught. "It is a simple decision, but the return of normality in the legal prism is very important. All the people who come to the street and this atmosphere shows it. We have a duty as ordinary citizens to denounce everything that deviates from the path of the law and shows the seizure of justice. Justice may not be caught, it may be wrong, but when the wrong is persistent it is justice caught. I stand by what I have said, they are the decisions of a captured justice. This is the decision of a justice that reflects normality. There is also a judiciary not captured by Rama", underlined Malltezi.
