Kosovo's outgoing Prime Minister Albin Kurti told President Hashim Thaci to step down and enter an election race, respecting the Constitution, the Beta news agency reported on Friday.
Kurti told reporters that Thaci "should leave the presidential post because he is not happy with his work."
"Let him start a campaign and see how many votes will he get. He wants to be more than the president, and that's why he needs someone less than a prime minister. I'm not that person, and the October 6 ballot showed that," Kurti said, adding that "we have a frustrated president preparing for an election campaign."
He accused Thaci of "fulfilling the Constitution holes with decrees," and wanting to be the boss to all the ministers, "a king to a prime minister, and a judge to prosecutors."
