The news website reports that four civil society organisations in Pristina have reacted to outgoing Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj’s decision to hold a government meeting today and they called on President Hashim Thaci to act immediately and help resolve the situation in line with his constitutional competencies. “The outgoing government lacks the legitimacy to implement the government program. The President must act urgently and perform his constitutional obligations with the aim of resolving the situation. We – civil society organisations – react strongly against former Prime Minister Haradinaj’s decision to hold a meeting of the outgoing government and against any important decisions that this government may make,” the civil society organisations said in a statement. “We call on the former Prime Minister and the outgoing government, until the election of a new government, to perform only the necessary tasks and responsibilities that keep the state administration function in order to avoid an institutional vacuum … In this situation, we – civil society organisations – call on the outgoing government not to take any action or on important decisions, otherwise for every suspected decision, the State Prosecution will have to prosecute every senior state official, starting from the Prime Minister and the entire cabinet of ministers and other public officials, that use the current situation to make important decisions which can otherwise be made only by a legitimate government”. The civil society organisations also called on President Thaci “to not waste any time and take urgent measures in consultation with political parties and move toward a solution for electing legitimate institutions”.
