The vote for LVV is a vote of punishment for the old ruling elite and how they governed Kosovo over the past 20 years, but also a vote of hope for political stability, reforms, and prosperity, the executive director of the Civikos platform, Donika Emini told KoSSev.
According to the latest CEC data, Self-Determination won 48.21% of votes. When it comes to other parties – PDK won 17.33%, LDK – 13.17%, AAK – 7.43%, Srpska Lista – 5.22%, NISMA – 2.59%, and UZ-AH 0.73%.
Donika Emini told KoSSev that yesterday’s elections are important to Kosovo for various reasons.
The first one is that the electorate and their demands have been changing, as they are “not voting for the parties that are built in the past and that are basing their causes in the past.”
“They are voting for parties who promise to fight corruption and parties who are going to create jobs and take care of their well-being,” she said.
According to Emini, a vote for LVV is a vote of punishment for the old ruling elite.
“The vote for LVV is a vote of punishment for the old ruling elite and how they governed the country in the past 20 years, but also a vote of hope that they are giving to Kosovo and political elites for the last change, for political stability, reforms, and prosperity.”
She, however, added that the change is not going to be a snap.
“It is going to be very hard. It is a multi-frontal process that requires a lot of work and a lot of political will. This is probably the first test of many challenges that Kurti will face when it comes to power,” Emini underlined.
What the future holds is still a mystery – she said.
“We still don’t know how LVV will act when in power, we don’t know how the relations with other political opponents will be or whether Kurti will need to form a coalition.”
Kurti’s relationship with Srpska Lista is also a mystery, Emini noted, as is probably most pressing issue for international representatives – the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia.
She recalled that Kurti has not really revealed his plan for the dialogue process so far.
“He is against territorial exchange, against the Association (ASM), we don’t know what the third option is – it has never been revealed. He refuses to discuss it because he is more focused on other priorities which are related to the state capture, fight against corruption, organized crime, prosperity, jobs and so on.”
Setting the dialogue as a priority is very important, Emini specified, assessing that Kurti is seeking more time to create a unified approach of Kosovo’s position in this regard, and he is not ready or prepared to face this process.
