Following his speech in Lezha, the next stop today in the tour of visits by Democratic Party chairman, Lulzim Basha, was Vlora.

From here, he invited citizens to join the opposition protest on January 27th, which, in his words, aims to overthrow the government's alliance with crime.

For the Democratic Party Chairman, the Prime Minister, Edi Rama's, has proven that his priorities are not aligned with citizens but with the gangs of crime which he used to secure his position of power in the first place.

"Rama has rallied the entire government to protect Saimir Tahiri.

"This is because the case raised is not really just an issue of Saimir Tahiri, but a symptom of the bigger case against Edi Rama, who is the head of the gangs, the head of the mafia sphere in Albania.

"Edi Rama is not concerned with the entrepreneurs here who are in a continuous cycle of bankruptcy.

"In just the first week of this year, 250 businesses closed due to bankruptcy. This is at a similar pace to the 13 thousand others that went into bankruptcy during the past year." said Lulzim Basha.

Lulzim Basha also had a more direct message for the Prime Minister.

"I want to give you a clear message, Edi Rama. On the 27th of January, the same rhetoric your have heard from the opposition will be shouted by all the united people protesting in Tirana.

"Rama - Your time is up! Albanians will not accept the capture of justice by thehand of crime. Bandits belong in jail, not in the government. The united Albanians have already taken the decision." said Lulzim Basha.

Basha concluded his speech saying that the actions of the opposition will enable the establishment of a crime-free government, therefore ensuring free and fair elections for the future.
