Gazeta Express has learned from its sources
that the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) forums are discussing involvement of
this opposition party in Avdullah Hoti’s Government. The PDK chaired by Kadri
Veseli has not officially confirmed the news.
An indictment filed by the Hague
prosecutors on 24 June accusing leader of the PDK, Kadri Veseli, of war crimes,
it seems to have rocked the boat of this opposition party. In addition to
internal discussions on replacing Veseli as leader of party in case a pre-trial
judge of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers confirms the indictment, the PDK forums
are discussing also other changes. Gazeta Express has learned that over the
last two weeks the PDK has launched an internal discussion on joining the
ruling coalition led by the Democratic League of Kosovo.
But despite internal developments, the PDK
spokesperson Avni Bytyqi, answering to media reports about expected changes in
this party, said the PDK remains in opposition. Bytyqi says that “so far” party
forums have not discussed joining of Hoti’s Government.
“The PDK is opposition party. So far, joining
of the government was not discussed at any decision-making level of the party.
All media reports are just speculations!” Bytyqi wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
The PDK on 6 October 2019 elections was ranked as third party and has decided
to stay in opposition. /GazetaExpress/
