Vetevendosje has sent a proposal nominating Albin Kurti as the next prime minister of Kosovo to President Hashim Thaci, setting a 15-day deadline for Kurti to present his government to the Kosovo Assembly for approval.
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.
While negotiations between the winners of October’s parliamentary elections continue, Vetevendosje’s Albin Kurti has already used several media appearances to stress the need to discuss wartime reparations in the Brussels dialogue.
After winning the largest share of the vote in the parliamentary elections, Vetevendosje have promised to exclude Belgrade-backed Lista Srpska from the next Kosovo government. But is it democratically and constitutionally possible?
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.
