On 18 February 2017 members of the Democratic Party and other opposition parties, under the leadership of Lulzim Basha pitched a giant tent outside the Prime Minister's office in Tirana after thousands of protesters rallied to demand free elections and a technocrat government. The opposition protest further escalated into a larger political conflict. The Democratic Party and its allies refused to register to take part in the June 18 general election, until the government will accept their conditions to secure a free and democratic election.
In June 2017, Basha met with President Donald Trump during a visit to the US as part of participation in White House Workforce Development week. Basha said the two discussed " administration initiatives on cutting taxes, promoting vocational and job-training, an apprenticeship program." Earlier, Basha claimed that his support for Trump made him the target of a campaign funded by George Soros.
During the 2017 Albanian parliamentary election he proposed reinstating the flat tax at a 9% rate. The flat tax was a form of taxation which had been applied by Berisha’s government during the time that the right wing was in power, between 2005-2013.
Basha is pro-American and as leader of the Democratic Party he considers the USA as the most important strategic partner of Albania. In June 2017, Basha met with President Donald Trump during a visit to the US as part of participation in White House Workforce Development week." Earlier, Basha claimed that his support for Trump made him the target of a campaign funded by George Soros.
On December 11, 2016 during the celebrations for the 26th anniversary of the Democratic Party, party leader Lulzim Basha announced his program for the further modernization and democratization of the party ahead of the 2017 parliamentary elections.
Basha didn't run for a 2nd mandate in the 2015 local elections, which were won by the Socialist Party candidate Erion Veliaj.
During his leadership numerous anti-government demonstrations have been held, accusing the government as corrupt and criminalized. On 2015 the Democratic Party proposed a Decriminalization Law, which led to several months of negotiations with the government. Finally in December 2015, the law was passed by majority in the Parliament, barring people with criminal convictions from holding public office.
On 30 September 2014, a national congress of the Democratic Party was held to elect a new leadership. In the congress a tough reform of the party was announced by Basha.
On May 2013 the City Hall launched an international tender for the construction of the capital’s new northern boulevard, with a length of 1.8 km. The project was expected to be finished before Basha's first mandate as mayor, but after the 2013 parliamentary election, the new Rama Government cut off most of the funds, and many projects were left unfinished.
After the defeat of the Democratic Party-led coalition in the 2013 parliamentary election and the resignation of Sali Berisha as party leader, Basha was elected as chairman of the Democratic Party in 23 July 2013, following the first one-member-one-vote election in party’s history .
A draft was presented in May 2012 and it was considered as very important for the future economic development of the city. It was one of the first successes of Basha as Mayor of Tirana, but the plan was opposed by the opposition. The new Urban Development Plan proposed a number of measures, primarily with a focus on the road network and, to a smaller degree, on sustainable modes of transport. A tramway system in addition to the bus system was proposed and the plan also included the building of a new Boulevard in the northern part of the city and the rehabilitation of the Tirana river.
In 2011 Basha was the governing party's candidate for the post of Mayor of Tirana. He defeated the leader of the Socialist opposition, Edi Rama, by a very narrow margin (only 81 votes after the recount) in a hotly contested election. He served as Mayor until 2015.
After the 2009 election, Basha was nominated as Minister of Interior in the new Berisha government. As Minister of Interior, he implemented all the required criteria for visa-free travel to the Schengen countries, including the modernisation of the Albanian border and immigration police system, the issuing of high security biometric passports and a tougher fight against criminal activity and criminal assets. These steps won international praise, notably by EUROPOL and other law enforcement bodies, and led to the decision of the EU on 8 November 2010 to lift all travel visa requirements for Albanian citizens effective 15 December 2010.
Basha served as Minister of Foreign Affairs from May 2007 until his appointment as Minister of Interior in September 2009. During his term, Albania was admitted to NATO, applied for EU membership and started the dialogue to secure visa-free travel for its citizens to the Schengen countries.
Basha is a strong supporter of Albania joining the EU. He has accused the government of Edi Rama of distancing Albania from its EU perspective through failed reforms and corruption. Serving as Minister of Foreign Affairs between 2007-2009, he mostly focused on the visa liberalization process of Albania and he finished his mandate with the EU decision to let Albanians travel freely in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days.
Prior to being elected Mayor of Tirana, Basha was twice elected as member of Parliament representing Tirana (2005–2009) and Elbasan (2009–2011). During that period he served as Albania's Minister of Public Works, Transport and Telecommunications (2005–2007), Minister of Foreign Affairs (2007–2009) and Minister of the Interior (2009–2011).
Basha joined the Democratic Party of Albania in January 2005 and became a member of the party's Presidency in May of that year. He has since held several ministerial positions in Democratic Party-led governments.
He served as the party's spokesperson during the 2005 parliamentary elections at which he was elected to the Albanian Parliament as the MP of Constituency #33 in Tirana. He was then nominated in the Berisha government as Minister of Public Works, Transport and Telecommunications, where he served for a period of two years. Basha initiated the major infrastructural work in Albanian history, Durrës–Kukes Highway, involving the construction of a 5.6 km tunnel. In 2007, the Chief Prosecutor of Albania Theodhori Sollaku asked the parliament to lift Basha's immunity from prosecution so he could begin an investigation into possible political corruption and abuse of power charges. This was in regard to the awarding of the highway construction contract to Bechtel-ENKA, a U.S.-Turkish joint venture. These charges were filed after the Chief Prosecutor himself had been impeached by the Parliament on charges of collusion with organized crime. Basha said that the charges were politically motivated, although he asked the Parliament to lift his immunity. Consequently, the Supreme Court of Albania after a legal process relieved him of all the charges.
In 2000 Basha joined the Department of Justice of the UN administration of Kosovo, UNMIK, first as legal advisor and then as Deputy Chief of Cabinet of the Director of the UNMIK Justice Department since October 2001. From November 2002 until January 2005 Basha served as special advisor for Transition in the same department.
