The incumbent Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, did not think that his government would last only 50 days, but he knew that it would not be easy to see that Kosovo continues to be with elements of the captured state. .
“VV has increased and doubled since the October elections. This has made everyone come together against VV to continue the privileges they had “, he said, adding that they are ready for new elections where they will be defeated even if they all come together.
He told Euronews Albania that these politicians who gave territories lost the elections and the people did not want them.
Kurti said that at the moment when reciprocity was abandoned, the VV-LDK agreement was violated.
The incumbent Prime Minister was also asked about the overthrow of his government, where he had accused Ambassador Grenell. Kurti said that this is a person from the United States who is very powerful with whom he talked but did not agree to question the Republic of Kosovo.
Incumbent Prime Minister Albin Kurti insists that the US President’s special envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Richard Grenell, has been interested in reaching a quick agreement between Kosovo and Serbia and not on the content of such an agreement. . He said that he talked to Grenell even after his government was overthrown in the Assembly of Kosovo.
“Ambassador Grenell was in Kosovo in October and January. I met him both early. Initially in October, he said that Kosovo should abolish the tariff and on the other hand Serbia should stop its campaign in the international arena against the recognition of Kosovo’s independence and our membership in international organizations. However, since he went to Belgrade in January, he has completely removed the second part and said that only Kosovo should remove the 100 percent tariff, while he did not speak strongly about the work of the demands on Serbia and his pressure was initially expressed with a kind of insistence that demanded not to be discussed. I have been in constant communication with him until recently, even after we were overthrown as a government and now we only have a government in office.
“So he had a role that was not neutral, on the contrary it was an active role, but for me it doesn’t mean anything to the United States. It is about a US emissary, very powerful, very important with whom I have talked, but on the other hand I also did not agree to question the interest of Kosovo, the relationship with Serbia, our subjectivity because reciprocity is the thing. more normal in bilateral relations in good neighborliness despite his insistence. In this sense, I think that he was very interested in reaching an agreement as soon as possible between Kosovo and Serbia, in which case his focus was more on the signatures at the end of the agreement than on its text “, explained Kurti.
Meanwhile, the head of VV spoke once again about the breakdown of the coalition with the LDK.
“At the moment when the reciprocity was abandoned, the agreement was broken,” Kurti told EuroNeës Albania.
He said he knew it would not be easy but he did not think it would be just 50 days at the helm of government.
He said that Vetëvendosje is ready for elections and will emerge victorious.
“We are ready for new elections and we will defeat them all and we are bringing them all together,” said Kurti.
He denied that his government did not last due to inexperience in governance. He said that he was voted by the citizens for such a reason.
“It’s not a compliment and it’s not an argument to justify someone. The citizens voted for me because I have no experience in governing “, said Kurti.
In an interview with Euronews Albania, the incumbent Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, talks about the latest political developments, due to the breakdown of the coalition with the LDK and the efforts to form a new government. Mr. Kurti stated that, since the last parliamentary elections held in October last year, Vetëvendosje has doubled. Here he referred to a recent survey.
“The latest poll shows us with 50.7% of the vote, LDK with 17% and PDK with 12.4%. This has caused great panic and has brought them all together. On October 6, we came out first. We are ready for new elections, in which case we will defeat them, even if they all come together “, declared the incumbent Prime Minister. “In the last six months, VV has doubled compared to the October elections when it first came out. This has influenced everyone to unite against us in order to preserve the privileges they had after the war and after the declaration of independence “, declared the head of VV.
Mr. Kurti said that he expected his government not to be long-lived, referring to the elements that have seized the state in Kosovo, and in such conditions he was aware that he would face many problems in addition to the usual difficulties. Speaking about the circumstances that led to the dissolution of the coalition with the Democratic League of Kosovo and then the motion of no confidence in his government, Albin Kurti said that it was all a plan and the dismissal of the Interior Minister was the cause.
He stated that the LDK minister demanded the declaration of a state of emergency at a time when there were no casualties from coronavirus and this aimed to transfer executive powers to President Thaçi and even to attempt an incident with Serbia to bring them back. in play the plan for agreements on the exchange of territories.
“If I had not fired the former minister, I would have violated it. I did not commit any wrongdoing and dismissed him. I believe I had no other choice and it is one thing I have not regretted. It was not just that action because for a minister there is no government. He was not a minister but a plan. There were no circumstances for declaring a state of emergency “, declared Mr. When you.
“It is true that I have no experience in governance, but here in Kosovo, those who have experience in governance are very much hated, due to the state of the economy. It is not a compliment to have experience in governance, so the citizens have voted for me. I am and have been the chairman of the largest political entity in Kosovo. What we didn’t have experience with was coronavirus, which we managed to cope with very well, and we managed to block the declaration of a state of emergency. “
Speaking about his relationship with former Deputy Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti, who is now the LDK’s candidate to become prime minister of the new government, the VV leader said that he was working against his government and that dismissed him because he was the only one to vote against the government he belonged to during the no-confidence motion.
“Hoti behaved as if he had a bucket of sand and threw it on the government wheels. I was correct with him I cooperated as much as I could. After the motion of confidence he was the only government official who came out against the government and it was impossible to keep him in the government and I fired him. Other LDK ministers did not take the floor to speak out against the government they belonged to. He was the only Deputy Prime Minister and started to function as a centrifuge for various attacks “, stressed the incumbent Prime Minister of Kosovo.
