Albin Kurti, the leader of the Self-determination party, and a likely new Kosovo Prime Minister said on Tuesday that the Pristina’s Constitutional Court unequivocally stipulated that the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on the normalisation of relations was in the jurisdiction of a prime minister and not the President, the Beta news agency reported.
Asked what would he do if the international mediators invited President Hashim Thaci who had led the dialogue with Serbia’s counterpart Aleksandar Vucic so far, Kurti said that would have violated Kosovo’s Constitution.
“If that happens, that will be the breach of the Constitution. The Constitutional Court has decided that the dialogue with Serbia should be led by a prime minister. Hashim Thaci is the President, but he is not in charge of foreign policy,” Kurti said as cited by the K7 TV.
Kosovo’s Constitutional Court has ruled that the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue should be lead by a prime minister, while a president has an advisory role.
