The election of the head of the Democratic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci in the post of the president can end up in the Constitutional Court. Kosovo’s opposition is analyzing the legal aspects of assessing the constitutionality of the election of the new president.

Self Determination MP, Ilir Deda says that the election of the president has only deepened the political crisis in Kosovo.

“I think that Thaci’s election will be contested at the Constitutional Court. We shall see how this contest will go and what political consequences it will generate. However, it is clear that as president, we have the less unifying person in the country. As far as the international arena is concerned, we’re seeing that Thaci is not being congratulated”, Deda declared.

Law Professor, Muhamet Kelmendi says that the election of the president of the country is anti constitutional. According to him, Thaci’s election as the head of the state may be annulled by the Constitutional Court.

“120 MPs must be present in the parliamentary session. Otherwise, the session is not held. Only those MPs who are sick or have taken leave are allowed to be absent. The fact that a number of MPs were not present makes the election anti-constitutional”, he said. /ibna/
