The incumbent Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, states that his threat from the Albanian Volunteer Guard made public days ago is real, unlike what President Hashim Thaçi claims, who described it as a slander fabricated by the VV offices.
He told OraNews that he was not afraid of any kind of threat, adding that the letter was more pressure on the Constitution, which on May 29 will decide on the president’s decree on the name of the mandator.
“The president said that I have written the threat to myself, if there are such facts, it should be urgently interviewed by the prosecution. But this is not being done. There is still no liberation of the state of Kosovo from these abusers, we only have a new government and not new institutions. And they overthrew the government.
There was a threat to me, a death threat to me and my family, they made it public, the prosecuting authorities are dealing with this matter. Those who know me know that threats do not work for me. I am not a person who retreats or is threatened. There is only one explanation, they practically have it with the Constitutional Court that it is not by chance that it is devaluing the President, respectively the presidential decree that is clearly in contradiction with the Constitution.
Regarding the recent accusations by the president that he has usurped the office of the Prime Minister, Albin Kurti says that Thaçi should resign and enter the election race because he cannot make opposition from the president’s chair.
“I can’t comment on a president who behaves in accordance with his mandate and competencies. It does not represent the unity of the people, it is behaving like one of the opposition leaders. It is good to resign, to let go of that seat where you are not feeling comfortable and to come to the polls in the next election. A panicked, frustrated president trying to make opposition in the president’s chair.
The sooner we have a new president, as we have a new government, the better it will be for our Republic. I hope that the Constitutional Court considers the presidential decree as a clear tendency to be equated with the parliamentary amendment of the Constitution. The constitution can be changed and written by the Kosovo parliament, but by no means its president “, said Kurti.
