Isa Mustafa, leader of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) noted in a Facebook post that he remains loyal to the idea of Kosovo being governed by the so-far opposition political parties.
“I am engaged and remain loyal to the idea and commitment that the country should be governed by the so-far opposition political parties, LDK and Vetevendosje. At the current situation, I consider this to be the best solution. Both LDK and Vetevendosje have their own specifics. There are people with whom one can count on victory and governance. Their inner environment distinguishes them,” he wrote.
“I do not give the right to LDK to interfere on who from Vetevendosje should be the Prime Minister of the country. But neither do I give the right to Vetevendosje to tell us how should LDK decide on the Prime Minister and people of the campaign. I consider cooperation to be a process of mutual respect. I have swallowed the past, because I valued more interest of the country than myself,” Mustafa wrote.
“We have responded positively to the coalition with Vetevendosje due to the interest to strengthen the state and decriminalize the country. LDK is not seeking the post of the Prime Minister to underestimate Mr. Albin Kurti and his merits, but because we value Ms. Osmani and the requests of our membership. We value LDK’s competency, its team, for good governance, without corruption. This is the reason of our request for the position of the Prime Minister,” he explained.
“If we are convinced that PM’s post belongs to both parties, this does not mean that we should open front to each other. We have many good things that one party can address to the other in our cooperation, but we have bad things too. This is not the manner for us to try to gain votes. I would rather prefer to build a joint pre or post-election front in order to make it impossible for PANs and their supporters to continue to destroy the state,” Mustafa wrote.
