Ramush Haradinaj, Chairman of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, was observed meeting with all of Prime Minister Kurti’s political opponents in the Kosovo Assembly prior to the start of the session addressing the situation in the country’s north.

According to video obtained by KosovaPress, Haradinaj first met with Fatmir Humolli, the expelled deputy from the Parliamentary Group of the Self-Determination Movement, and then met with Arben Gashi, the head of the Parliamentary Group of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK). Later, Haradinaj met with the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) chairman, Lumir Abdixhiku.

He also spoke with Abelard Tahiri, the head of the PDK’s Parliamentary Group. Other PDK deputies that met with Haradinaj included Ferat Shala, Rashit Qalaj, and Blerta Deliu Kodra.

Following the events in northern Kosovo and the Western reaction to official Pristina, Haradinaj called for a vote of no confidence in the Kurti government a few days ago.

“The Alliance’s position is to call a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Kurti.” The motion of no confidence is based on two recent events. The first is the threat to sovereignty and security in the north, and the second is the breakdown of relations with the US and the EU, which could lead to US sanctions on Kosovo. “We will begin consultations with the political spectrum and society in general, and we believe that the motion is the solution to the situation that has been created,” he stated.

Serbs have been protesting in northern communities for the past six days, condemning the newly elected Albanian authorities from the April 23 elections.

On Monday, demonstrators, some wearing masks, attacked KFOR members, the Kosovo Police, and journalists. They flung various objects at peacekeepers and media representatives, including the A2 CNN team. Thirty KFOR soldiers were injured as a result of the violent protests.

The US has criticized Kosovo for raising tensions with Serbia and canceled its participation in the NATO military exercise “Defender 23” after the government refused to withdraw municipal mayors and police troops from municipal buildings.
