The paper writes that according to the Kosovo Constitutional Framework, if the President is temporarily unable to perform his duties, this role would be undertaken Speaker of Kosovo Assembly Nexhat Daci. The office of the Speaker, however, told the paper that the issue of temporary replacement had not yet been discussed.
President Ibrahim Rugova travelled on Saturday to a United States Army base in Germany where he is to undergo medical tests.
Lajm quotes advisor to President Rugova, Skender Hyseni as saying there is no need for a temporary replacement as Rugova is able to perform presidential duties even from the hospital in Germany.
Express writes that there is increasing suspicion that President Rugova is not merely suffering from a cold but that his condition is more serious than officially stated.
