The race for the Himara Municipality

Op-Ed 

By Nikollaq Neranxi

Two candidates have enrolled in the Central Election Committee to compete as mayor of Himara: Jorgo Goro, who seeks a third term and Fredi Beleri who seeks a second loss. In fact, everything went as expected: Jorgo Goro was reelected by Rama as the man who serviced all his projects involving the seizure of the lands on the coast, where every centimeter is owned by indigenous residents. So there was no reason to move such a diligent servant. On the other hand, he faces a candidate who has been both a hidden servant of this government and an open servant of Greek politics at the same time.

Greeks placed their own person as guarantee that he would best represent their own interests, which is the separation of Himara between politicians, oligarchs and beyond. Beleri will work for Goro to win and, in return, he and his bosses will be rewarded with plots of land on the Southern seashore. So do not expect Beleri to campaign for Vorio Epirus, they have now found easier and more sophisticated ways to take over that area; it is enough to rob the land, build hotels and resorts and it’s theirs!

This is the fate of Himara, for which two individuals are racing, one more of a thief than the other, with backs bent from all the services they make for their bosses, the great mission to rob Himara, to expel her native residents, and to eradicate her glorious history. Beleri has began that service several months ago, signing on behalf of residents, to rob properties, in cooperation with Goro, and both have more to contribute in this regard, as no one takes the trouble to stop them.

P.S. Himarots who begin their day gossiping and drinking rakia by the seaside, too unconcerned to care about the “war” to save their ancestors’ lands, are not advised to read this piece.
