The leader of the Self-Determination (Vetëvendosje ) party and most likely new Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti said on Friday that President Hashim Thaci should resign or, as he said, would be relieved of duty, the news agencies reported, citing Pristina media.

The Self-Determination and the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), who would attempt to form a coalition government based on the results of the October 6 general elections, also discussed Thaci’s position, local media said.

“President Thaci must resign or will be ousted,” Kurti said.

In an interview with Top Channel, Kurti added that the decreasing wish for national unification was caused by  the territory swap idea, “since people were not ready to give up on Mitrovica for the sake of the national unification.”

He said that many politicians in Kosovo speak about the territory swap, giving up on the north,” adding that there was not a single official in Serbia who talked about the handout of the territory.”
