Following his election as new leader of the the Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, Lumir Abdixhiku vowed to pursue reforms, 'prove the doubters wrong' – and restore his party to its old primacy in politics.
LDK announced on Thursday that former deputy prime minister Avdullah Hoti has been nominated as candidate for prime minister, with reports circulating that President Thaci has offered the party the mandate to form the next government.
With more than two months having passed since the October 6 parliamentary elections in Kosovo, Vetevendosje and LDK have been pressed by officials from the EU, the US, the UK and Germany this week to swiftly form the next government.
Vetevendosje and the Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, are close to reaching a deal to form a governing coalition for the next four years, after the two former opposition parties won the majority of votes in the October 6 parliamentary elections.
Vjosa Osmani’s nomination by LDK as candidate for prime minister completes the race for Kosovo’s parliamentary elections, now confirmed as being held on October 6.
