Opposition MPs in Kosovo have decided to block once again parliamentary proceedings today. The leader of AAK parliamentary group, Donika Kadaj Bujupi said that until the demands of the oppositions are met, then parliamentary proceedings will be blocked.

“This government has only two possibilities: to withdraw or to stand down. We call upon the government to withdraw from the agreements that damage Kosovo and then return to parliament and proceed with the normal day to day business, but not in this form”, Kadaj said.

Meanwhile, the head of the parliamentary group of Self Determination, Glauk Konjufca said that the despots of the majority have broken their oath as MPs.

In these circumstances, speaker of parliament demanded a 10 minute break and invited journalist into the parliament hall and film the blocked parliamentary proceedings.

Veseli called on opposition parties to protest in front of the government and not block parliamentary proceedings.

“The government is the one that has signed the Brussels’ agreement. Therefore, the opposition must protest in front of its building”, he said.

The head of the Democratic Party of Kosovo parliamentary group, Adem Grabovci has called on the opposition not to block parliamentary proceedings.

“We’re sorry about this situation. This is an attempt to block the state of Kosovo. The opposition must ask itself what it wants to achieve through these acts. However, we believe that there must be dialogue in parliament. The opposition is not worried about the content of the agreement, but to seize power”, he declared. /ibna/
