Kosovo: Constitutional court to rule on the Hoti-Kurti dispute

The hearing on the Constitutionality of the vote of the detained MP Etem Arifi, for which the party of Albin Kurti, Movement Vetëvendosje, requested interpretation is to be held tomorrow in the Constitutional Court. The hearing is expected to begin at 10:00 (local time), while during the day the Constitutional Court will announce new information.

The Vetëvendosje Movement will receive answers tomorrow to the doubts that have arisen after the Hoti government vote on the legitimacy of this decision.

All parties responded positively to the Constitutional Court’s appeal for a public hearing on December 2.

This hearing will take place via teleconference and the Constitutional Court states that all preparations have already been made.

“The public hearing that will take place on December 2, 2020, starting at 10:00, will be attended by all interested parties involved in the case. Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, the public hearing will take place via teleconference (online) and all the preparations for its holding have already been made”, noted the press office of the Constitutional Court.

The former head of the Constitutional Court, Enver Hasani, noted that if the Constitutional Court declares the vote of MP Etem Arifi invalid, then we return to Kurti.

“Kurti is back to where he was at the beginning. It means choosing whether to send the famous letters to the President again.

I was against this decision, you know. The decision of the Constitutional Court was unfair as it dealt with Albin’s conduct in letters. But this is not justice. It ought to have dealt with the facts.

It is now in the hands of the President. He can choose. It can last indefinitely. The decision was completely unfounded”, he added./ibna
