The constitutive session of the parliament of Kosovo which came out of the June 8 parliamentary elections, will be held on September 12.

This decision has been taken on Thursday in the meeting called by the most senior MP in parliament, Flora Brovina, who had invited party leaders to talk about deciding a date for the holding of this session.

But, this decision has been taken without the participation of the representatives of opposition bloc LDK-AAK-Incentive and Self Determination, who had refused the invitation, saying that it was not within the power of Brovina to call this meeting.

Brovina has not wanted to comment the boycott of this consultative meeting by the opposition bloc and Self Determination, by saying that 11 political parties represented in the parliament of Kosovo have participated in this meeting.

PDK representative in this meeting, Enver Hoxhaj said that PDK agrees with any date decided by the temporary speaker and that PDK will participate in the session, demanding from all parties to respect the decision of the Constitutional Court, which is very clear.

Hoxhaj said that for this party, political stability stems from the June 8 elections which have confirmed PDK and its political group as the biggest one in parliament.

“Institutions of Kosovo will come out of the elections and these institutions will be formed by PDK, which has won the elections, but being in a parliamentary system, we will find and create partners with which we will build our institutions”, said Hoxhaj.

The first constitutive session of the parliament of Kosovo was held on July 17 under a lot of tension, as PDK insisted that being the winner of the elections, it was entitled to elect the speaker of parliament, but due to the lack of a quorum, the session was closed by the temporary speaker, Flora Brovina.

After this session, opposition MPs and MPs from Self Determination, gathered in parliament and elected the leader of LDK, Isa Mustafa in the post of the speaker.

PDK on its part sent this matter to the Constitutional Court and the latter decided to annul the election of Isa Mustafa in this post. /ibna/
