Haradinaj confident that he will constitute Government, excludes Vetëvendosje
Although not with an expected victory, the PDK-AAK-Nisma (PAN) coalition is the winner of the June 11 elections.
Candidate for Prime Minister of this coalition, Ramush Haradinaj, pledges he will constitute the new Government in the first week after the certification of results.
Haradinaj said that he will fulfil the number of 61 MPs both with communities and with the Albanian votes.
The AAK chairman, Ramush Haradinaj, rules out chances for a potential partnership with Vetëvendosje Movement, saying he does not consider the former leader of this political entity serious enough.
According to Haradinaj, the fact that Albin Kurti is denying some truths shows how far he can go to achieve his goals. According to Haradinaj, Kurti is deceiving citizens, saying he is a winner. VV’s only victory can be the moral one, he added.
While, with regard to dialogue with Serbia Haradinaj reiterated that the EU’s only presence will not suffice, adding that the presence of U.S. is indispensable.
As far as dialogue is concerned, Haradinaj has said he will not continue where it was left, but underlined that he will initially seek investigations for what had been achieved.

The candidate for Prime Minister of PAN coalition, Ramush Haradinaj, also says they have started discussions with political parties for constitution of new Government.
Xhelal Sveçla said that Vetëvendosje does not negotiate with any political party regarding the issue of Prime Minister. He also confirmed that Vetëvendosje delegation met with the U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo.

The disappointing result of LDK in the June 11 elections has pushed the former MP and LDK member Adem Salihaj to request resignation of this party chairman, Isa Mustafa.

The other LDK member, Fatmir Rexhepi, is also disappointed with LDK’s result in these elections, while he expects reflection from the leadership, too.
Salihaj and Rexhepi say they were punished by the LDK electorate, due to many mistakes made by the leader of the party with the entering into coalition with PDK in 2014.

Out of preliminary CEC results, LDK took 25.79 percent of the votes, ranking after Vetevëndosje and PDK-AAK-Nisma coalition.
