By blocking the work of the Parliament, the government is pushing the country into the first crisis since it gained full independence from the international community. The opposition says that the most favourable solution is early elections. Prime Minister Hashim Thaci isn’t pleased why Jakup Krasniqi, his party secretary general speaks out loudly about the failures of the government he runs.

Isa Mustafa was interviewed on Thursday for two hours by a EULEX prosecutor, Pascal Persoon. Pristina’s Mayor press office says that the international prosecutor was interested about the murders of the LDK officials, after the war in 1999. But, the EU rule of law mission to Kosovo refused to comment why they interviewed Mustafa, who is the president of the LDK.

Kosova Sot

The differences in opinions within the ruling Kosovo Democratic Party, PDK, resurfaced at the Parliament, trough a debate between the Assembly Speaker Jakup Krasniqi and his co-party mate Adem Grabovci who leads PDK’s Parliamentary Group. The two engaged in a verbal confrontation on Thursday, due a motion tabled by the PDK, which was refused to be brought for vote by Krasniqi, who argued that he will not allow the regulations be breached. As a result the PDK group left the parliament, and the session was postponed for next week.
