Alliance for the Future of Kosovo and Incentive for Kosovo have decided to break up the coalition with Self Determination.

These parties will formalize their pre electoral coalition on Monday. The agreement which is expected to be signed today, aims at expanding the opposition front with representatives of civil society and other public personalities.

IBNA news agency brings parts of this agreement:

Given the current situation in the country following the signature of two damaging agreements and the full degradation of the governing, the rule of law and the loss of hope for economic development;

Given the need to offer a real governing alternative, that guarantees democratic governing, rule of law, sustainable economic development and a stable Euro Atlantic perspective for Kosovo;

Alliance for the Future of Kosovo and Incentive for Kosovo form an opposition coalition and agree on the following:

  • To enter the next elections with a joint coalition,
  • To remain open for a pre electoral coalition for other political forces, except PDK and LDK,
  • To remain open for other candidates from the Civil Society or public personalities.

Alliance for the Future of Kosovo and Incentive for Kosovo also agree to continue and protest against the capturing of the state and bad governance.

This coalition comes one day after Self Determination has demanded the intensification of efforts to create a joint opposition alternative which would include Self Determination, Incentive and AAK.

Vice chairman of Self Determination, Driton Caushi declared that the opposition activities have lost their coordination following unilateral actions by several opposition figures. Referring to the two opposition parties, Alliance for the Future of Kosovo and Incentive for Kosovo, Caushi said that their lack of action has jeopardized the opposition’s cause.

“While in a coalition, we have only asked for the decisions to be taken together. But recently we have seen that not everyone wanted for these decisions to be coordinated”, Caushi said.

Caushi said that Self Determination will continue to work in the best interest of the country and not allow agreements such as the one with Serbia for the Association of Communes to be implemented.

Opposition parties continue to insist on holding early elections, as the only way out of the political crisis in Kosovo. /balkaneu.com/
