Kosovo forms new government, Serbs to head two ministries, congrats from envoys Izvor: N1 info

Kosovo’s Parliament voted in a new government on Monday with Albin Kurti, of the Self-Determination party, as the Prime Minister, with 66 deputies in favour and ten abstained, N1 reported.

Kurti recommended two local Serbs for ministers, as stipulated by Kosovo’s Constitution.

Dalibor Jevtic should head the Ministry of Communities and Return and Ivan Milojevic the Ministry of Regional Development. Both are members of the Serb List, the political party supported by Belgrade.

The third member of a minority group to head a ministry should be Emilija Rexhepi, a Bosniak, in charge of Local Administration.

Kurti’s party and its coalition partner, the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), will have six ministries and a deputy minister each.  

Later on Monday Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci congratulated his country for forming a new government after last October’s general vote.

The US ambassador to Kosovo, the German embassy and the EU representative tweeted regards and welcomed the formation of the new government.

Diplomats also greeted Vjosa Osmani, as the first female Parliament Speaker in Kosovo.
