Kosovo’s outgoing Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj told reporters in Pristina today that he submitted a request to the Constitutional Court for a legal interpretation into his resignation. “I have asked the Constitutional Court whether this resignation implies a caretaker government, so a continuation of governance. Even though the Legal Office at the Office of the Prime Minister made this assessment based on earlier practices and interpretations, I have nonetheless submitted the request to the Constitutional Court, to be on the safe side of the law,” Haradinaj said. “I have resigned. A government must derive from elections but until that government comes, who holds responsibility for governance in this country? No one is giving this answer and I cannot let the country in chaos until a new government is formed. I assure the citizens of our country that I will not allow a government vacuum and to be on the side of the law I have addressed the Constitutional Court”. Haradinaj also said that his party – the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo – supports the dissolution of the Assembly. “The party that I lead supports the dissolution of the Assembly, whenever a session for dissolving it is called – if this speeds up the elections process … I have asked our parliamentary group, Ahmeti Isufi [AAK deputy leader], to begin consultations with parliamentary parties to dissolve the Assembly. The President has implied this [consultations] but we have yet to receive an invitation to a meeting,” he added. Haradinaj said his party is ready to run alone in eventual early parliamentary elections. Haradinaj also said that he will invite Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) leader Kadri Veseli and NISMA leader Fatmir Limaj to a meeting tomorrow.
