Vetevendosje MPs Albin Kurti, Albulena Haxhiu, and Donika Kadaj-Bujupi were arrested for failing to appear in court regarding accusations of releasing tear gas in the Kosovo Parliament.
Four Vetevendosje activists were found guilty of attacking the Kosovo Assembly building and sentenced to a total of 21 years and six months in prison.
In Kosovo, local elections do not necessarily reflect the trends set by the general elections; a party could fail at the national level, but be very successful at the municipal level.
MPs vote against a motion to dismiss Agriculture Minister Nenad Rikalo, of Lista Srpska, who was alleged to have been involved in the torture of Albanians during the Kosovo War.
After weeks of political deadlock, the Kosovo Assembly has elected Kadri Veseli as Speaker, with 62 votes in favor and 52 votes against.
