On Monday, the parliament of Kosovo convened in an extraordinary session to discuss surging energy prices.

Earlier on, Prime Minister Albin Kurti told opposition MPs that the problem cannot be solved in ten months.

“I have not said that the energy price will go down on the day I become prime minister, but in the past, there have been some tariff incentives which increased the price of electricity. We can’t do in ten months, what you didn’t do in 20 years”, said Kurti.
