No-confidence motion to be put to vote on Wednesday (Koha)
Opposition’s motion of no confidence against the government of Kosovo has been put on the Assembly’s agenda for Wednesday. The decision to call a session on Wednesday was taken at the meeting of the Assembly presidency yesterday soon after the three opposition parties formally submitted the motion. Kosovo Assembly President, Kadri Veseli, said after the meeting of the presidency that the opposition cannot determine the fate of the ruling coalition but added that situation in Kosovo is not ‘satisfactory.’ The no-confidence motion has been signed by 42 MPs but it will need at least 61 votes in favour to pass.

Kuci stressed that PDK will always put the interests of Kosovo and its people first. “We expect to discuss with coalition partners, see the real situation without ignoring the facts and then take the best possible decisions but not ruling out any option,” Kuci said.

Kosovo’s Foreign Minister, Enver Hoxhaj, met in Athens the Greek Foreign Minister, Nikos Kotzias, and discussed strengthening of bilateral relations. “We also discussed Kosovo’s membership in international organisations and the support Greece can provide. Our relations are excellent and what lacks is only the decision to recognize Kosovo as an independent country but this is a decision of a sovereign country that will happen at a certain period of time,” Hoxhaj said.
