Kosovo President May Seek Court Advice Over Political Stalemate

Albin Kurti, leader of Vetevendosje (Self-Determination), the party that topped the last elections in Kosovo, said on Wednesday that negotiations with the second-placed Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, had failed - and the two parties would therefore go into the constitutive session of parliament on Thursday without an agreement on forming a new government.

Belgrade Appoints Serb Officials in Northern Kosovo

As talks in Kosovo drag on between Albin Kurti's Vetevendosje movement and Isa Mustafa's Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, on forming a new coalition government, officials from Belgrade-backed Srpska Lista, the main Serbian party in Kosovo, have already taken up their new posts in Serb-dominated northern Kosovo.
