Several online media outlets reported Thursday that prime minister Avdullah Hoti is intending to resign, but Hoti in a Facebook post on Friday said that those reports are not true, Gazeta Express reports.

“Reports circulating in media about my resignation are not true. With my actions I have proven the readiness and commitment to offer solutions to all open issues, by unblocking even the most complicated processes that Kosovo is going through such as the decision to resume the dialogue with Serbia, reaching of the agreement in Washington on 4 September, drafting of the emergency package and package on  economic recovery as well as taking concrete measures in managing COVID-19 pandemic,” Hoti wrote on Facebook.  

Hoti’s reaction came after journalist Astrit Gashi attending a debate in TV Dukagjini said that he learned Hoti has offered his resignation as prime minister due to disagreements within the ruling coalition. His statement was reported by several online media, prompting Hoti’s reaction on Friday.

Hoti said that Kosovo political parties have two options: Either agreeing on electing of the new president or holding new elections. Former president of Kosovo Hashim Thaci resigned on 5 November after the Kosovo Specialist Chambers (KSC) confirmed an indictment against him charging Thaci of war crimes allegedly committed during his time he served as political representative of the Kosovo Liberation Army. The coalition led by Hoti’s party – the LDK lacks support in Parliament to elect the new president a situation which ahs polarized the political scene of Kosovo. /GazetaExpress/
