DPS Coalition Victorious in Malesia! Albanian Coalition left Scrambling for Answers
Sunday May 23, 2010
TUZ, Malesia -- The fate of Malesia's political future has been sealed for the next four years with a shocking election result leaving Albanians reeling for answers. Preliminary results show a sweeping victory for the DPS/DUA/BP coalition throughout Montenegro, including the much fought after Malesia/Tuz region. Meanwhile, the Albanian coalition of Sinishtaj, Gjergj and Nikolle Camaj, and Cunmulaj were given a blow to their united front in efforts to unite the Albanian vote and prevent non-Albanian parties from forming a political structure in Malesia.
The winning coalition won the eleven seats needed for majority rule in the Malesia urban municipality while the opposition earned seven. The Malesia coalition included Citizen Initiative (Vasel Sinishtaj), the Democratic League (Nikola Camaj), and Albanian Alternative (George Camaj).
Others winning seats in the council included the "List for Tuz" Muhammad Gjokaj, "SDP" Kole Lulgjuraj, and "SDP", Musa Pepic.
There are 9,050 registered adult voters in the Malesia district, where 5,524 cast their votes Sunday, equaling a dismal 61% of the electorate. The breakdown of the votes are as follows:
The coalition "For European Tuzi" - 2733 votes (49.5%)
"Coalition for Malesia" - 1813 votes (32.8%)
Musa Pepic - 370 votes (6.7%)
Kole Lulgjuraj - 323 votes (5.8%)
Muhammad Gjokaj - 309 votes (5.6%)
The results usher in new leadership in Malesia'a already fragile urban municipality that will see new faces take the reins and lead Malesia down a path carefully designed by Podgorica.
The DPS strategy seemed to be clear enough: Recruit Albanians from the Malesia region that would collect the required votes to push ahead. One clear choice was Rrok Gjolaj, an intellectual from Ksheva that alone generated the necessary votes to bring in the majority and lead the DPS/DUA/BP coalition to a clear majority.
As the final results will be announced in the coming days, one clear picture has been developed: For the first time in recent memory, Albanians in Malesia will not have their fate in their own hands. As such, Malesia's future now rests in the mercy of a Slavic political agenda that promises to shape a Malesia in a form that befits Podgorica, hindering freedom of political, social, and economic development the way in which Albanians would desire.
