Speaker Osmani asks MPs to dismiss Kosovo deputy prime minister Goran Rakic
Speaker Vjosa Osmani proposed a resolution in Parliament asking MPs to vote today on dismissal of Kosovo deputy prime minister Goran Rakic. But MPs have voted against Osmani’s initiative to be included in the Parliament session agenda.
The proposal came after Rakic’s party – Srpska List, a political entity representing Serbs in Kosovo which is part of ruling coalition, in a statement said that they will support Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic to return Kosovo under Serbia.
of vote, Osmani read the resolution saying that every call on supporting political
and diplomatic position of Serbia is against Kosovo and its constitutional
order. “The Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo reiterates that all political
entities, be it in opposition or ruling coalition, are obliged to work in
accordance with the Constitution of Kosovo, by not jeopardizing Kosovo’s
position in relations with Serbia,” Osmani said.
also urged the Government of Kosovo not to allow its members become active part
of Serbia’s diplomatic campaign against Kosovo’s statehood, a clear reference
to Srpska List policy who despite being part of Kosovo Government refuse to recognize
the state of Kosovo and are under direct control of Serbian President Vucic. “The
Assembly asks the Government to dismiss all members of the Government who
become part of such efforts. If the Government fails to dismiss members within
a week, it will be initiated a no-confidence motion against individual members
who have infringed constitutional order and sovereignty of the country,” Osmani
Speaker said the draft resolution comes after a specific statement of Rakic
given to media recently. “It has to do with the statements of Goran Rakic, when
he said that supports political and diplomatic efforts of president Vucic to
return ‘Kosovo and Metohija’”
means that a deputy prime minister of Kosovo joins the political and diplomatic
campaign against its own state,” Osmani said.
