Mr. Ali Ahmeti now is the time for you to remain in history either for better or for worse!

By Selim Ibraimi- Following the Hague Specialized Chambers hearing in Pristina, Democratic Union for Integration (DUI) leader Ali Ahmeti is not as vocal as he once was. What is happening with DUI ?! A post-election televised address a debate by Ahmeti does not explain the party’s policies in the Zaev (2) government. But nothing can be said about any policies in the party program incorporated in the government.

Defender of all issues, the First Deputy Prime Minister Artan Grubi and Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani, who critics say that both know how to answer for everything, are unlikely to bring innovation to the party and the ministries they lead. From the present appearances so far, it is noticed that DUI still continues to be the one that is not transformed with individuals who see the public practice of politics from the angle of party position and judgment on issues that require transparency.

Deputy First Prime Minister Artan Grubi will be challenged by Zaev’s government plan for Albanian employees in the administration, where their fictitious employment is expected to end with different plans, and the second is with Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani, who must overcome obstacles with Bulgaria in the name of all Macedonians. To move on the Macedonian issue, perhaps with such a team as the ministry, it would be childish to believe that Sofia will be persuaded by such diplomacy, which has behind it the strategy of  “beating” Bulgaria.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of European Integration do not differ much as the European Integration is led by the former Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, who is described by the press as an anti-Bulgarian. Therefore, the language coming from the Macedonian think tanks is too harsh to reach an agreement that official Skopje claims with Minister Osmani. Here DUI and Ahmeti can not escape responsibility.

There are also other issues of budget distribution, social protection, advancement of rights that DUI officials consider completed and most recently the reorganization of gasification of the western part of the country with a plan to build a gas network where Albanian parties in the government is not saying anything.
For the DUI, now is the time for the officials to raise their voices for the voters who trusted you and gave them the vote. Mr. Ali Ahmeti now is the time for you to remain in history either for better or for worse!  (ISSDMaqedonia-@CSSDMacedonia)
