Kosovo's President Hashim Thaci said on Monday it was time to appoint a prime minister-designate after the Constitutional Court ruled his decision regarding the post was legal and constitutional, the Beta news agency reported.
"The conditions for forming a new government are met, and I expect it soon," Thaci said.
He added that "it is important to lift all the measures which jeopardise our partnership with the international community," alluding to the outgoing Government decision on banning the import of goods from Serbia.
Thaci called on all parties and the candidate for prime minister Avdulah Hoti to take up responsibility since Kosovo had lost enough of time with changes. It's time for the economic recovery and the reforms in all walks of life."
"But, we have to be strategically careful especially with the European Union and NATO membership," he said and called on the EU to abolish visas for Kosovo's citizens.
