President of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga has held a fresh meeting today with political leaders to discuss possibilities for a successful election of the speaker and vice speakers of parliament on Thursday’s session in parliament.

After this meeting, representatives of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) declared that according to the Constitution, they’re entitled to form the institutions of the country.

V ice chairman of PDK, Kadri Veseli said that the meeting with the president was constructive and according to him, the will of the citizens will be respected in the constitutive session.

“Our solution is within the Constitution. We believe that the will of the citizens of Kosovo will be respected”, said Veseli, but without offering any details as to what has been discussed in the meeting.

After the meeting with the president of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga, leader of LDK, Isa Mustafa spoke on behalf of the opposition bloc.

“Along with Mr. Kurti, Haradinaj and Limaj we met with the president where we expressed our joint positioning in relation to the situation. We believe that this situation can only be solved in parliament, because we have to do with a parliamentary system which respects the majority. We also asked the president to become part of the solution in order to respect the basic criteria and the basic criteria consists on having the majority of MPs. If this was not enshrined in the Constitution, the issue would have been solved until now and we didn’t have to hold these meetings”.

Asked what further action will be taken, Mustafa replied: “We have no concrete plans. The president wants our suggestions. We have our orientations that we have made public and we are not changing them”.

Parliament of Kosovo is expected to hold its constitutive session tomorrow and the election of the speaker and vice speakers of parliament is in the order of the day. /ibna/
