Ahead of the parliamentary constitutive session, the president of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga will continue meetings with leaders of parliamentary parties in order to discuss the solution of the political crisis.

The advisor for the media and public relations of president Jahjaga, Arber Vllahiu, says that the head of state will facilitate discussions between leaders of parliamentary parties in order to overcome the political crisis that Kosovo is going through.

“President Jahjaga will continue to facilitate discussions between political leaders in the country in order to find a solution in line with the constitutional framework of the country”, declared Vllahiu.

Asked if the president will propose a solution to overcome the political crisis, in order for Kosovo to form new institutions, Vllahiu said that the overcoming of the crisis is in the hands of MPs and leaders, who according to him, must find a solution in line with the rulings of the Constitutional Court.

“The solution is in the hands of MPs and political leaders in order to find solution by applying the rulings of the Constitutional Court”, said Vllahiu.

During her official visit to New York, in the framework of the proceedings of the UN General Assembly, president of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga has met with representatives of many states, including US senior officials.

During the meeting with the vice US Secretary of State for Europe and Asia, Victoria Nuland, Jahjaga has received her support for the formation of the new institutions of Kosovo in accordance to the Constitution of Kosovo and the rulings of the Constitutional Court.

“Vice secretary Nuland assured president Jahjaga that she has the full support of the American government in her efforts to convince leaders of political parties to find a way in order to move forward with the constitution of parliament and the formation of the government based on the Constitution of Kosovo and rulings of the Constitutional Court”, said a press release issued by the president’s press office, dating September 27.

The constitutive session in parliament started on July 17 of this year and has not yet finished, due to disagreements between PDK and opposition bloc.

On July 17, Isa Mustafa was elected speaker of parliament, but the chair of Parliament, Flora Brovina has closed this session for lack of quorum.

Due to the failure to elect Isa Mustafa as speaker of parliament, 30 MPs of PDK deposited at the Constitutional Court a request for the abrogation of the election of Isa Mustafa.

Initially, this court suspended the election of the speaker of parliament and on August 22, it concluded that Mustafa was elected in this post in an anti-constitutional way. Meanwhile, the continuation of the constitutive session took place on September 18, but Arsim Bajrami could not secure the necessary votes to become speaker of parliament. /ibna/
