LDK wants Speaker’s post until new Kosovo President is elected
The Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) has
officially replied the Vetevendosje’s final offer on new government coalition,
Gazeta Epress reports.
According to a letter that LDK’s chairman
Isa Mustafa sent on Wednesday to Vetevndosje leader Albin Kurti, the LDK wants
their party member be elected Speaker of Parliament, although the Vetevendosje
has already appointed their deputy head Glauk Konjufca in this position. The
LDK proposed that this post might return to the Vetevendosje, only after a LDK
proposed candidate is elected as country’s president after mandate of current
president expires in 2021. With the new LDK’s offer the two potential coalition
partners would have equal share of ministerial posts, namely five ministries
each, as earlier agreed during a meeting between Kurti and Mustafa.
This offer was rejected in principle by Kurti
who made it clear to the LDK, that the Speaker’s post is already occupied and
is done deal and the Vetevendosje will not dismiss Konjufca. But the LDK on
Wednesday asked officially the Vetevendosje to make the move and replace
Konjufca with a LDK’s proposal.
The LDK confirmed their leader Mustafa has
replied Kurti’s request on co-governance without elaborating other details. The
Vetevendosje announced that Kurti sent on Monday to the LDK the final offer on
co-goverance proposing increase of number of ministries from 12 to 14 with the
LDK taking six ministries, Vetevendosje 5 and minorities three. /GazetaExpress/
