Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti is set to face a vote of no-confidence Wednesday in Parliament after his junior coalition partner – LDK initiated the motion last week.

The Parliament’s Presidency has decided to call a session on Wednesday at 11:00 when MPs are expected to vote the motion of no-confidence in Kurti’s Government who is leader of the Vetevendosje. Speaker of Parliament Vjosa Osmani said the Presidency members voted to proceed with the session despite recommendations of health authorities not to hold public gatherings. Osmani who herself is member of the LDK said that she was against and will vote against the motion adding that based on recommendations of Kosovo’s National Institute of Public Health there are no conditions to hold a session with 120 MPs sitting in the chamber due to coronavirus outbreak. Health authorities announced Monday that so far they have confirmed 61 coronavirus cases as the Government on Monday imposed a national lockdown to prevent further spread of COVID-19. The LDK initiated a motion of no-confidence in Albin Kurti’s Government after the latter sacked minister of Interior, Agim Veliu of LDK following disagreements over coronavirus outbreak measures. Albin Kurti’s Government was voted by the Parliament on 3 February 2020. /GazetaExpress/
