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/
