President of Kosovo urged political parties today to establish the new institutions in compliance with the laws and Constitution of Kosovo and by preserving the autonomy of each institution.

During her speech on Thursday in the Consultative Committee for Communities, Jahjaga said that it’s time for us to learn how to solve our own problems.

“The establishment of our institutions will guarantee democratic functioning of the state, it will show our ability to manage crises and our readiness to find the solutions that lead to meeting the expectations of our citizens for an advanced, responsible and respected state”, said Jahjaga.

According to her, the democratic functioning of institutions doesn’t imply imposed solutions by another institution.

“Kosovo is a parliamentary democracy and the responsibilities of each institution have been enshrined in the Constitution. We will coordinate our actions in the best interest of the country, by preserving the autonomy of each of our institutions and by guaranteeing their functioning”, said Jahjaga.

The president said that democratic systems operate with rules which must be respected.

“We must learn how to be responsible in front of our citizens. We must learn that the Constitution and the laws of the country are what make a state and we must all understand that democracy has rules that must be respected. Therefore, solutions come from those who have been voted by the people, those who are responsible before their voters and citizens of Kosovo”, said Jahjaga. /ibna/
