Leader of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), Isa Mustafa declared today (12.09) that besides the Democratic Party of Kosovo and Constitutional Court, everyone else in Kosovo has recognized the parliamentary system.

Talking about the political system in Kosovo, Mustafa referred to one of the drafters of the Constitution of Kosovo, the American judge, John Tunheim.

Mustafa, who was discharged as speaker of parliament for violations in the procedure, said that the government and parliament cannot be formed without a parliamentary majority.

“The American judge, John Tunheim clearly explained the parliamentary system. He said: Kosovo is a parliamentary system and as such, the government cannot be formed without a parliamentary majority. One can propose the government, but the majority elects it”, declared Mustafa.

Mustafa continues to insist that in parliamentary systems, the parliamentary majority has the right to form the institutions.

“This was known by all of us, but now, it must be known by PDK and Constitutional Court or both of them must explain to the public opinion how the government, speaker of parliament and deputy speakers can be elected without a majority. If the Constitutional Court doesn’t do this, then this is proof that it’s not an independent institution, but biased in this vital process for Kosovo”, added he. /ibna/
