The opposition Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) and Vetëvendosje Movement reiterated on Friday their objection to let Kosovo President Hashim Thaçi lead the negotiation team of Kosovo in the European Union (EU)-mediated talks with Serbia, KAG correspondent reported.

The LDK President, Isa Mustafa, has convened the presidency of the party and heads of the branches from all over Kosovo to reconfirm the stance that this party objects the role of President Thaçi in dialogue with Serbia, emphasising that elections should be held in Kosovo prior this process, out of which a legitimate majority would emerge and which would represent Kosovo to the dialogue.

"All the LDK branches confirmed their stance that the dialogue process cannot be led by non-legitimate institutions and beyond constitutional competences. So, LDK is ready to lead this important process after the civic legitimacy in new elections", the press release said.

This stance reconfirms the LDK's objection to let President Thaçi lead the dialogue with Serbia, while the Government to give up on the mandate given by Kosovo Assembly to lead this process.

Alarmed from the opposing stance of LDK the Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has visited the President of this party, Isa Mustafa, (in his house) to talk about the dialogue with Serbia. But, Mustafa said through a post on Facebook on Saturday that he explained to Haradinaj the stance of LDK, which remains the same.

On the other hand, the opposition Vetëvendosje Movement accuses President Hashim Thaçi of holding negotiations with Serbia without having a clear platform.

The head of Vetëvendosje Parliamentary Caucus, Glauk Konjufca, has declared that Parliament of Kosovo should be the one to decide on the talks about normalization of relations with Belgrade.
