Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- Kosovo's biggest party, Vetevendosje, has announced that early elections could be looming yet again, making a surprise motion to change the country's electoral law ahead of a parliamentary vote to elect a new president.
The election of Kosovo's next President took a new twist on Friday when the parliamentary group of the Vetevendosje party called a meeting of the parliamentary presidency to examine its request to amend the Electoral Code.
Vetevendosje, who has the most deputies in Kosovo's parliament, tabled an unexpected motion to amend the Electoral Code to allow members of the Kosovo diaspora to vote at embassies abroad instead of by post.
Vetevendosje is backing Vjosa Osmani for presidential elections following his victory in the February elections.
According to the rules, however, 80 of parliament's 120 deputies must be present for the presidential vote to take effect, and questions remain about whether the opposition Democratic League of Kosovo LDK will try to block Vetevendosje's election by not returning.
The PDK, the opposition Democratic Party of Kosovo, said it did not support Vetevendosje's attempt to change the electoral law.
