Leader of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), Isa Mustafa declared today that his party has shown its engagement to make the necessary amendments for a better governance in the country, but like he said, two new set of circumstances have made it harder for this coalition to meet these objectives.

“It’s the ruling of the Constitutional Court, which entitles PDK to propose the speaker of parliament and the criteria presented by the president of the Republic of Kosovo, harmonized with international partners, for the conditions that must be met in forming next government. These conditions relate to having the majority in parliament, international partnership, dialogue and implementation of agreements stemming from the talks and involvement of communities in the government”, said Mustafa.

He said that the opposition coalition has pledged to vote the candidate that will be proposed by PDK for speaker of parliament, in order to give way to the constitution of parliament.

“We’re also interested to address other issues in harmony with the policies of the country, inside parliament and with the majority of votes”, said Mustafa.

According to Mustafa, LDK is consistent in relation to its partners, but new circumstances impose a new approach, in order for Kosovo to have its parliament and government in the days to come.

“These two days, LDK will hold high level meetings and will decide on helping the country to build its democratic institutions as soon as possible in harmony with the interests of the citizens”. /ibna/
