A sudden flurry of accusations where Socialist and Democratic leaders gathered before parliament.
The beginning of the session did not go as smoothly as the Democratic Party immediately demanded its termination as opposition leaders expressed their outrage calling upon the Prime Minister to be present in order to provide explanations for the allegations made by the Voice of America over electoral fraud.
Democratic party Chair, Luzim Basha, started off by reprimanding his opponents by stating, “You don't know what you are talking about; you don't know what you're doing because you don't know why you're even here.
“Half of you are here, not because of the votes by our political opponents, but you're here because of a group of criminals brought you here to serve their interests.
“It’s been five years since the Democratic Party has denounced the stealing of votes and now what we have said is factual; Everything we said beforehand was published and broadcasted by the most prestigious medias in the country and around the world, The Voice of America.
“You pretend that nothing has happened while the leader of your party is proven to have annihilated the election. No wonder Edi Rama does not try to come here today.
“We cannot pretend that today we are in a normal session and that we are following normal parliamentary procedures.
Basha, then, ended his speech by calling for an early termination of the parliamentary session, stating:
“The first thing that should happen is this session should be stopped! After that, then hypocrisy will end.”
