The leader of the Vetevendosje (Self-Determination Movement) and candidate for Kosovo PM, Albin Kurti, said that if there is no agreement on a coalition with the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), his party would ask for new elections.
Kurti told Radio Television Kosovo (RTK) that a new election is not the party’s goal, but that it would suit Vetevendosje because support for it has surged since the early parliamentary elections.
"I am pursuing a common interest, a state interest that requires the Vetevendosje and LDK to form the government as soon as possible," he said.
Kurti also said that the presidential candidates were not discussed with the LDK leader Isa Mustafa, but that he insisted on discussing the strategy for early presidential elections.
He added that the most important thing was to get a prime minister and the head of the parliament, as well as the 12 ministers, while the post of Kosovo’s president can be discussed later.
