Kosovo: Opposition is aiming to topple the government

Political parties in Kosovo are trying to overthrow the government led by PM Ramush Haradinaj.

Self Determination Party is trying to reach consensus for the holding of snap polls, considering it as the most democratic solution which would enable the creation of a legitimate government of the majority.

This is why on Friday, 25 May, this party will hold a meeting dubbed “Solution through elections”, which will see the participation of several political parties.

“Only a legitimate government which has a parliamentary majority would be able to push political and economic processes forward. This sort of government alone would enable the development of the country and the integration in European Atlantic structures”, Self Determination Party says.

LDK whip, Avdullah Hoti says that if political parties do not agree on an election date, then this will be solved through constitutional mechanisms.

“We’re not seeing any solutions in this aspect, therefore, I think that the next meeting should help us agree on an election date”, he said.

Hoti also said that in a parliamentary democracy, at the very moment the government does not have a majority in parliament, it should hold a vote of confidence.

While the opposition is demanding snap polls, Kosovo’s PM, Ramush Haradinaj has declared that the government will continue to work with the reforms and the European Atlantic processes.

Haradinaj has declared that the liberalization of visas and the creation of the Army of Kosovo will be achieved through close coordination with the international community.

Meanwhile, analysts in Pristina told IBNA that the current government does not have a majority in parliament to govern the country, but on the other hand, opposition parties do not have the necessary numbers to overthrow the government either.

Under these circumstances, analyst Vilhard Shala sayus that the government and opposition need to reach consensus and collaborate on important issues concerning the country. /ibna/
