The issue of the election of the President of Kosovo has created a chaotic situation and disagreement in Kosovo politics, increasing tensions and sharpening rhetoric, while the country should appear as united and strong as possible while the dialogue with Serbia is still in process and the Union European has not yet lifted visas even after meeting all the conditions. Kosovar political parties, with the exception of Lëvizja Vetëvendosje, are demanding that the president be directly elected by the citizens in the future. Although they are unable to agree on the election of the head of state in this legislature, the Democratic League of Kosovo, the Democratic Party of Kosovo and the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, agree that in the framework of electoral reform, constitutional changes should be made for the election. of the president. All this to avoid, political crises that the election of the country's prime minister is constantly bringing. On the other hand, Lëvizja Vetëvendosje and civil society do not share the same opinion. "Telegrafi" reports that the LDK MP, at the same time chairman of the committee for legislation, Shkëmb Manaj says that the failure to reach a consensus for the president is bringing ongoing crises in the country. According to him, political parties must find a common language for the future president of the country to come directly from the vote of the citizens. "Urgently, all political entities that are represented in the Assembly must sit down and think seriously about electoral and constitutional reform. Includes the amendment of the Constitution of Kosovo, but also the laws on general and local elections. I think it is good to see that in the framework of the electoral reform that our country makes, the President of the Republic to be directly elected by the citizens of Kosovo because what competencies he has as a unifier, it would be good to come directly from the people of Kosovo and then not to have problems. "You are seeing that if we are not able to elect the president of the Republic, this is affecting the government and consequently the dissolution of the Assembly", he says.
The same opinion is shared by the PDK MP, Evgjeni Thaçi-Dragusha, who says that the election of the president by the citizens is already a requirement of the time. "I think it is a requirement of the time to think that the president, or the president is elected directly by the citizens of Kosovo. The position of the president should serve as it is in the Constitution as a unifying position and not a blocking one. At the moment we have such a case when the election of the president itself is serving as a blockade for Kosovo institutions, but also normal life in Kosovo. "We have had initiatives in the past that have remained there, but I think that the electoral reform should start in the near future and look at the possibility for the president to be elected by the citizens of Kosovo," she said. while, Pal Lekaj from AAK suggests that the party he represents will support any electoral and constitutional reform for the election of the president. "The Alliance supports any electoral reform even if we agree that the president be directly elected by the people," he said. Vetëvendosje Movement does not agree with the above views. LVV MP, Dimal Basha says that the problem does not exist with the Constitution, or with the law on the president, but with the political parties and their mentality. "In a normal country, if the constitutional spirit was preserved, where a president who represents the unity of the people is required, this would not be a problem. The problem does not exist with the Constitution, or with the law on the president, as it exists with political parties and their mentality within the Assembly… we think as a Parliamentary Republic if the constitutional spirit is preserved it would not be a problem for any political entity to vote for a consensual, apolitical president who represents the unity of the people. "The problems are the political entities, not the constitution, or the form of regulation for the election of the president", he declares. The political spectrum in the country in the past has tried to elect the president of the country by the citizens within the electoral reform. But such a thing has not managed to become a reality even after so many years.
