Chairman of the Alliance New Kosova (AKR) reiterated on Thursday that his party is interested to end current political crisis. He reiterated his stance asking other parties the LDK and Vetevendosje to formalise an agreement which will end current political crisis, and asked the PDK-AAK-Nisma (PAN) coalition as winners of election not to boycott constitutive session of Assembly. “The AKR has not changed its stance and remains coherent with its proposal given since the first day,” Pacolli said.
Commenting on Thursday’s session of Assembly which was stalled due to lack of quorum after the PAN coalition and MPs representing minorities boycotted the session, Pacolli said that another day was wasted and called on all political parties to bring the political stalemate to an end. “To me and my party – the AKR it is important to establish new state institutions and start implementing tasks which have remaind hostage of political arrogance. The AKR has not changes its stance and is coherent in its proposals since the first day. We have our identity as a liberal party and our principles are solutions rather than crisis, interests of the state rather than political interests. Also our international friands are asking a sustainable solution,” Pacolli wrote in a statement posted in his Facebook account. When commenting about media headlines that he gave ultimatum to the other parties LDK and Vetevendosje that within ten days to prove him they got majority to form insitutitons, Pacolli said that he makes no ultimatums noting that current political stalemate damages Kosovo economically and politically. “I want to see the LDK and Vetevendosje moving towards formalisation of an agreement which would end political crisis, whereas I want the PAN coalition return to Assembly and not block its sessions,” Pacolli said. Pacolli during an interview with the public broadcaster RTK on Wednesday said that he gave ten days to LDK and Vetevendosje to prove him that they got majority and are ready for cooperation, implying that he would switch alliances and joins the PAN to form the Government. Pacolli’s party – the AKR was part of the pre-election coalition with the LDK and Alternativa and managed to won only four seats in Assembly.
The PAN coalition who as winners of election won 39 seats are counting on 20 votes of MPs representing other communities and they need at least 61 votes in the 12-seated Assembly to elect the speaker and form new Government. Other parties including Vetevendosje and LDK are refusing cooperation with the PAN. Analysts say Pacolli’s four votes are crucial for the Pan’s candidate Ramush Haradinaj to form the new Government.
