Kurti will talk to Escobar and Lajcak about holding new elections
The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti does not "dispute the necessity" "at some point" to hold new elections in the north of the country, but that, as he says, "the rule of law" should be established before that.
In an interview with NBC News, Kurti said he would discuss the possibility of holding new elections next week with European Union Special Envoy for Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak and US Special Envoy for the Western Balkans Gabriel Escobar, who will visit Pristina. .
"Next week, the EU and US special representatives, Lajcak and Escobar, will come to Kosovo and we will discuss the details. "I believe in early elections, but that's why we need the rule of law and a free and fair campaign for free and fair elections," Kurti said.
He stated that it is obvious that the mayors who won the elections on April 23 have low legitimacy, due to the low turnout in those elections, but they are, according to him, "the only legal and legitimate ones".
