PRISTINA – Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Kosovo (SRSG) Søren Jessen-Petersen made the following statement after learning of the resignation of Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi:
“I was informed that the Prime Minister has resigned.
Such developments are a part of normal democratic life and are fully in accordance with democratic principles. I would like to thank the Prime Minister for his important contribution to Kosovo’s progress over the last many months.
I urge the future Prime Minister to accelerate standards implementation and to make sure that Kosovo does its utmost to provide the highest quality of life to all of its communities. This is of particular importance as progress on standards will have a strong impact on the outcome of the status process.
I look forward to working closely with the new Prime Minister when elected by the Assembly.”
