Serhat TUNAR -TDO- During a parliamentary session in Kosovo, lawmakers again failed to reach a consensus on the coalition government. Lawmakers also failed to reach a decision on the presidential candidates. Worried about a deeper political stalemate in the country, experts say Kosovo could run for re-election.
Following an early general election in Kosovo last October, Glauk Konjufca was elected as the new speaker of the parliament on 26 December, with a vote of 75 MPs. About 3 months after the early general election, Konjufca won the support of 75 of the 108 deputies who participated in the session of the 120-seat parliament, becoming Kosovo's new parliament speaker.
The Deputy Speaker of the assembly was Fikrim Damka, MP and leader of the Democratic Turkish Party of Kosovo (KDTP), as well as Arberie Nagavci of the 'Take Your Own Decision’ Movement, Kujtim Shala of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), Memli Kraniqi of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK), and Slavko Simic of the Serbian List.
However, coalition talks between the 'Take Your Own Decision’ Movement and the LDK have yet to reach a compromise.
