Representatives from Vetevendosje detailed their plans for governance in a BIRN electoral debate on Thursday, outlining schemes to tackle poverty, promising reciprocity with Serbia and dismissing elements of the Washington agreements.

On Thursday night, BIRN’s Jeta Xharra hosted Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurt and a team of senior officials to discuss the party’s governance plans, less than two weeks before Kosovars head to the polls to vote in parliamentary elections on February 14.

Kurti stated that one of the key priorities for a Vetevendosje government would be to examine actions taken by the previous government led by Avdullah Hoti. “One of the first decisions is to review all the decisions made in the last six months and reverse them,” he said.

The party’s candidate for prime minister stated that the biggest issue currently affecting Kosovo was justice, both in the legal system and in the economy. “When we say justice we do not mean only in the courts, but social justice and justice in employment,” Kurti said. “When we say employment, we mean employment with dignified working conditions, without risks and any form of discrimination.”

Kurti added that it was crucial to connect the job market with the education sector, and with vocational education in particular. “Half of our youth are unemployed, while the majority of those who work are not employed in their trained profession,” he said.

The party highlighted high levels of emigration as one of the key challenges that need to be addressed, and promised to undertake a number of measures to halt the exodus of citizens, including tackling poverty.

“All citizens that live on less than a euro per day will be taken out of extreme poverty,” Kurti pledged. “By removing people from poverty, we are removing children, women and the elderly from social misery.”

As part of their attempts to eradicate poverty, Vetevendosje promised to increase the minimum wage from 170 to 250 euros per month. “We consider that 250 is fully attainable and we believe that the fight against informality in the economy will make it possible to increase revenues,” Kurti said.

On the subject of employment, Xharra questioned Kurti over whether Vetevendosje would also continue to appoint persons affiliated to the party to the boards of public enterprises, as happened under the party’s previous coalition government with LDK.

The former prime minister conceded that four of the people appointed had links to the party, but insisted that they “were renowned for their professionalism and not for their party membership card.”

Exchanging asphalt for social schemes

In addition to raising the minimum wage, representatives from the party outlined other schemes to help tackle social inequality. Deputy Speaker of the Kosovo Assembly Arberie Nagavci stated that a Vetevendosje government would provide subsidised social housing – offering 4,000 apartments to young couples with mortgage payments of 150 euros per month over a period of 150 months.

Nagavci said that families with lower incomes will also be supported through a number of education schemes, including 1,000 scholarships for young women, with a focus on the natural sciences. “We also plan to scrap payment for [public] pre-schools for families living with low incomes and in poor economic conditions,” she added.

Vetevendosje MP Mimoza Kusari stated that financing for these social schemes can be created by freeing up capital from large-scale investment projects, many of which she said need to be reviewed. “Financing highways with state money will come to an end,” Kusari-Lila said.

Xharra asked Kusari to identify the party’s position on the much debated Dukagjini Highway specifically, which the MP has often criticised in the past. “The Dukagjini highway, which was proclaimed by the PAN government, is not necessary, we need to widen the road but not to build a highway,” she said.

Reciprocity with Serbia and the Washington agreements

In terms of foreign policy, former Minister of Foreign Affairs Glauk Konjufca pledged to review all foreign policy decisions taken by the Hoti government, and use reciprocity as a guiding principle in relations with Serbia.

“Vetevendosje will apply the language of reciprocity in all spheres,” said Konjufca, adding that the party would also seek to protect rights for the ethnic Albanian minority living in Serbia. “It will be a state policy that the rights of Albanians living in Presevo, Medvegja and Bujanovc should be equal to the rights of Serbs living in Kosovo Republic,” he pledged.

Xharra pointed out that if reciprocity was to be applied consistently, then Kosovo Serbs would not be able to use their own textbooks in primary and secondary education, and whether a Vetevendosje government would translate state textbooks into Serbian.

“In fact, under a second Kurti government, universal education will be applied across the Republic of Kosovo,” Konjufca replied. “In terms of curricula and content, there will be no differences on subjects such as history.”

Konjufca added that a Vetevendosje government would not be committed to all aspects of the agreements made by the Hoti government in Washington DC under the auspices of the Trump administration.

The former foreign minister argued that Serbia has been violating the agreements constantly, pointing to Serbian officials continually opposing recognition for Kosovo, despite pledging to halt its derecognition campaign. “We cannot be overly polite to Serbia, whose aim is to deny the existence of Kosovo statehood,” he said.

Konjufca added that any document that violates Kosovo’s sovereignty will not be accepted by a Vetevendosje led government, and that the party would not accept sharing natural resources, such as the Ujmani lake, with Serbia.

Addressing Kosovo’s recognition by Israel last week, Konjufca stated that it was an important step, but added that the decision to locate Kosovo’s embassy in Jerusalem was “not a wise policy.” He conceded that if the EU insisted on relocating the embassy in order for Kosovo to accede to the union, the decision “would have to be reviewed.”

Vaccination and health insurance plans

Former Minister of Health Arben Vitia was also present at the debate to discuss health issues, and Xharra highlighted his absence from the public sphere since the Kurti government fell, despite the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

“Good to see you Mr Vitia, we haven’t seen you since you were a minister,” Xharra said. “Why haven’t we seen you for so many months? Should you only talk when you are in the government?”

Vitia defended his record, stating that he has spoken to citizens through a number of gatherings. “The fact I was not on TV does not mean I wasn’t active,” he said.

Addressing public health issues, Vitia promised that a Vetevendosje government would try to vaccinate a minimum of 50 to 60 percent of the population against COVID-19, and promised that all essential medicines would be provided to the public free of charge under a Vetevendosje-led government.

Jeta Statovci, another candidate for MP running under the Vetevendosje list, stated that Kosovo’s long awaited health insurance system would be implemented within the mandate of a Vetevendosje-led government. However, she was not able to provide an exact date that she expected the system to be functional.

The Browns are currently 3-point road favorites, though history suggests this is a football wasteland for them, while the Steelers are the winningest team in MNF history. Steelers 22, Browns 16 The Steelers have a few notable strengths that open doors against the Browns. Pittsburgh excels in ball security on offense, committing only 18 turnovers in 15 games. That ranks in the top 10 of the NFL, and the Steelers are in the top five in avoiding interceptions with only nine. Cleveland’s defense can be beaten through the air, allowing 27 passing touchdowns, and the Browns are below-average in third down and fourth down efficiency. The Steelers (7-7-1) should be able to tuck under the 3.5-point spread despite going just 2-4-1 in their last seven games. The Browns (7-8) aren’t playing much better as they have lost back-to-back losses and tasted defeat in three of their last four games.

  4. Impaired Driving in Canada (Topic Summary) “It is clear that Amendment A contains provisions embracing at least three separate subjects, each with distinct objects or purposes,” Chief Justice Steven Jensen wrote in the majority opinion, which found recreational marijuana, medical marijuana and hemp each to be separate issues. Earlier this year, a Statistics Canada survey showed 14 per cent of Canadians aged 15 and over had consumed marijuana in the previous three months — a number that climbs to 17 per cent in Alberta. The report by the Task Force on Marijuana Legalization and Regulation had recommended that recreational cannabis growers should be licensed at a federal level, separately from the producers of medical marijuana. The expert panel also recommended that the process ensure competition by licensing both large and small producers. While licensing should be federal, each of the provinces should be allowed to determine how and where the product will be sold. Even though the United States is one of the world’s most progressive countries in terms of cannabis legalization, the herb remains federally illegal. For this reason, it might be best to get your seeds from a friend or buy directly from a licensed shop. However, in these cases, you’ll have limited options that may not be suited to how and what type of cannabis you want to grow. If you are a United States customer, you need to be aware that most American prepaid cards cannot be used with international merchants. Many of the best seed banks are located in the U.K., Europe, and Canada. Paying for your order by prepaid card might not work. To stay up to date with all of the latest cannabis news, insights, facts, and opinions – follow our blog. The laws regarding possession, use, and distribution of marijuana still vary substantially between countries, states, and provinces, but cannabis seeds are legal to buy and possess, at least in the United States, even where marijuana consumption is still illegal. When consumers purchase marijuana seeds without the intent to cultivate them, they are considered an adult novelty good. American adults over the age of 21 can legally purchase seeds online regardless of where they live.
