Current PM of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa, was reelected on Sunday chairman of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK). His election was done through an open voting in the assembly of this party.

The reelected leader said that the assembly was held in line with the values of the party and its statute.

“It was a successful assembly, where complaints were noted and where the voting process took place according to the statute. The delegates that were present here, were aware of their vote”, Mustafa said.

Meanwhile, Vjosa Osmani, MP of this party complained about the fact that she was not given a chance to run for leader of LDK, for not securing the necessary support to run.

“As I’ve said before, I consider this a violation of democracy. It’s the worst example which could be given today, not only for LDK, but for all of Kosovo. But we must not stop and we must continue to heed the voice of the members of LDK. I am convinced that these people, who have installed a dictatorship inside the party, will soon come to an end”, declared Osmani.

Disgruntlement has also been expressed by former president of Kosovo, Fatmir Sejdiu, who withdraw from the race, due to what he considered as irregularities in the assembly, including the form of voting, which according to him, was in violation with the rules of democracy.

Democratic League of Kosovo, the oldest party in the country, was founded in 1989 and for 16 years in a row, it was chaired by Ibrahim Rugova, former president of Kosovo.

Upon his death in January 2006, this party was no longer the first party in Kosovo, following a defeat in the 2007 elections by the Democratic Party of Kosovo led by Hashim Thaci. Currently, this party holds the post of prime minister, although it came out second in the last general elections. /ibna/
