Basha: Berisha is ready to burn Albania for his chair, January 8 has opened

The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha has not stopped the attacks against his predecessor, Sali Berisha.

In a meeting with the leading structures of the 8th branch of the Democratic Party in Tirana, Basha said that Berisha and his supporters were ready to burn Albania on January 8th.

Even, according to Basha, the January 8 protest opened the eyes of Albanians why he took the decision to expel Berisha from the DP.

Excerpts from Basha's speech:

Look at what happened inside our house. As I told you at the beginning, it all started for principled reasons but after it was for a man's plight. Sali Berisha started a whole movement just for his personal plight. And it ended as I told you, he was ready to put them, he along with a handful of people who for their chair are ready to set fire to their house showed that this is not a battle for either democracy or Democrats, but for Sali Berisha's personal plight and for their chairs. Not today, even yesterday, even 5 years ago, even 10 years ago, even when we were in power, they were ready to take out the eyes of any honest Democrat for their seats, for their personal power which he has always built on the sacrifice of honest Democrats by taking and thinking what to take when every honest Democrat thinks what to give for this country. People have realized this. There is no other reason why we are all together here tonight and we will continue to be day by day because people have understood. The question that people used to ask why it does not come out and you, I believe has received the answer. Could I forgive Edi Rama the pleasure of a clash with the Democrats like the one that Sali Berisha tried to do with those few people who for their chair are ready to burn Albania on January 8? The question that people used to ask why it does not come out and you, I believe has received the answer. Could I forgive Edi Rama the pleasure of a clash with the Democrats like the one that Sali Berisha tried to do with those few people who for their chair are ready to burn Albania on January 8? The question that people used to ask why it does not come out and you, I believe has received the answer. Could I forgive Edi Rama the pleasure of a clash with the Democrats like the one that Sali Berisha tried to do with those few people who for their chair are ready to burn Albania on January 8?

Could I allow myself in the first place, that this one you know me as the boy of your neighborhood, my family upbringing, my sense as a democrat from the first moment that this party was born and no longer the responsibility you have for me charged as chairman of the Democratic Party to pit Democrats against each other?

I told you at the beginning who asked me, no I do not. Let it vent. I know it is full of anger, rage, lies, but evil will make its cycle like any virus, it will have its cost like any virus. But, it is not fought by putting Democrats face to face and that is why I believe you understand very well. January 8 has opened everyone’s eyes to why I made that decision and why it was the right decision. And that's one more reason why today we are together, we are the absolute majority here of the governing structures, tomorrow we will be even more as we were yesterday, as we were 4 or 5 days ago, as we will be tomorrow because the Democrats are not together neither for the name, nor for the chair, nor for the fame of a single man. They are together because in our union they see and find the strength to become better, stronger, more willing to answer to whom? The demands of the Albanians
