Kosovo's government to face no-confidence vote, opposition leader says

March 19, 2020

Ramus Haradinaj, former Kosovo's Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (ABK) said on Thursday that his party would support a for a no-confidence vote in Albin Kurti's Government, the Beta news agency reported.

"I talked to former Prime Minister and the President of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) Isa Mustafa about the request for a no-confidence vote into Kurti's Government. I told Mustafa that ABK would vote for the motion because Kurti's Government won't be only short-lasting, but also the most damaging government for Kosovo. ABK supports a quick solution after the Government's collapse," Haradinaj said following the meeting at the LDK headquarters.

After him, Mustafa also talked to Fatmir Limaj, the leader of the Social-Democratic Initiative of Kosovo.

LDK Secretary Arban Abrashi said later on Thursday, that his party would inform the US it would leave the "anti-American Government of Prime Minister Albin Kurti as soon as possible."

 In the meantime, Haradinaj's MPs were collecting signatures for the no-confidence demand. They need 40 signatures for the motion to be put on a Parliament session and 61 for the no-confidence vote to succeed.

Kosovo's Parliament has 120 members.
