The election of the new president of Kosovo will also have the support of the Democratic Alliance (LDK). The news was announced by the leader of LDK, Lumir Abdixhiku after his meeting with the party’s MPs.

LDK’s leader emphasized that this is the decision of LDK’s leadership, voted in with an absolute majority. He added today that he expects all 15 MPs from his party, to respect this decision.

“After an open and comprehensive discussion, loaded with arguments, everyone unanimously came to the conclusion that LDK won’t obstruct the election of the country’s President. Like always, LDK will exercise its constitutional duty and participate in the voting process for the President of the Country. Hence, this is the decision made by the leadership team, voted in by its members, with an absolute winning majority.

We have communicated this decision today, to the MPs of LDK. I expect that every one of them will respect the collective will of the majority. I expect each MP to act like an institutionalist; and if it need be, to transcend their personal opinions,” stated the head of LDK.

Earlier, Vjosa Osmani and Albin Kurti have met with the leaders of the political subjects, AAK and PDK, who have now declared that they won’t be supporting the candidature of Osmani.

Another questionable 10 votes are those of the Serbian list, as they too, have expressed discontent with Kurti’s decision to only grant them one minister post.

In fact, they have forewarned that they will be taking this to the Constitutional Court.

If no resolution is reached for the country’s new president, Kosovo could be heading for reelections.
