Two opposition parties, Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (AAK) and Incentive for Kosovo have lowered their tones against the two largest parties in power. This issues the first signal that opposition parties will not act as a united front.

AAK leader, Ramush Haradinaj says that opposition parties may continue to reject the agreements that led to the political crisis, but their paths are divided in all other processes.

He says that the use of violence must not be part of political parties, while saying that the developments so far have not damaged relations with international partners.

Haradinaj says that his party is ready to enter a coalition with any parliamentary party after the elections, without exempting anyone.

“AAK insists on new elections, but we cannot have prejudices. Our party will collaborate with PM Isa Mustafa’s party and also with PDK”, Haradinaj declared.

The same positioning was also taken by leader of Incentive, Fatmir Limaj. “We have ruled out anyone. We will also collaborate with parties in power. What joins us is our vision and an objective to change the situation”, Limaj said.

Self Determination has strongly reacted against AAK and Incentive for Kosovo.

“To invite people to protest against this authoritarian regime and then to declare that there will be cooperation with any political party, is not only hypocrisy, but it also means lying to the citizens”, Haxhiu declared.

According to her, Kosovo doesn’t only need a change of people, but also a change of political mentality. /ibna/
