Political crisis in Kosovo deepens

Political efforts continue in Kosovo to secure a majority in the parliament of the country, which would lead to the formation of a government.

While the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) insists that it is up to the party that has won the elections to elect the speaker of parliament, the opposition, which united last week, has another plan on how to ruin every initiative launched by PDK of Hashim Thaci.

Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (AAK) and Incentive for Kosovo have joined forces to govern the country and have decided to be together in parliament as a single parliamentary group, in order for an agreement signed last week to be implemented.

Vice chairman of AAK, Ardian Gjini says that the post election coalition has the necessary seats in parliament and that the new speaker of parliament will be nominated by them.

“We will announce a single parliamentary group at the moment when the results are certified”, declared Gjini.

Nevertheless, before the start of the procedures for the constitution of the new structures, the final result of the elections must be certified.
