Prime Minister of Kosovo refuses to withdraw in front of the pressure of the opposition for early elections.

Mustafa has responded to the opposition’s demands by saying that the government will continue its work and that elections will be held in June 2018.

“The government’s objective is to complete the whole term in office”, Mustafa said in today’s government meeting.

According to him, the government is determined to deliver its governing program, including the economic development, the opening of new jobs, European integration and the strengthening of the rule of law.

But, to deliver these objectives, Mustafa called on the opposition to abandon the means used up until now to challenge the government.

“It is in the best interest of the country to work in order to improve the life of the citizens. We must give up on violence and attacks against government buildings and police. I call on the opposition to return to parliament and talk”, Mustafa said.

Meanwhile, opposition parties have decided to boycott parliamentary sessions until the future parliamentary elections. /ibna/
