The Democrat leader, Lulzim Basha involved in a debate with Speaker Gramoz RuÁi since the first minutes of Thursdayís parliamentary session. The origin of this debate was a proposal made by the Union for Human Rights Protection (UHRP) chair, Vangjel Dule for the removal from sessionís agenda of the law for minorities.
RuÁiís refusal to do so urged DP chair Basha to accuse the Speaker of parliamentary regulation violation. He supported Duleís request by asking Speaker RuÁi to convene Regulation Council instead of violating the regulation.
ďYou are transforming this parliament from absurd to tragic. Parliamentís regulation clearly defined the steps to be followed in such case. It is your duty to implement this regulation instead of amending it. You canít change the regulation through a simple voting process,Ē said Basha, addressing to Speaker RuÁi.
He stressed that despite the fact that Duleís request might be right or wrong the parliamentary procedures should be respected.
ďThe Regulation Council should be convened without further delay. I would not like to see this sessionís degradation as the last one. Letís prevent the useless debate,Ē declared the DP chair.
