The energy crisis brought clashes in the Kosovo Assembly between Prime Minister Albin Kurti and the head of the Parliamentary Group of the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Abelard Tahiri, who accused the chief executive of appointing weak managers at the helm of the Kosovo Energy Corporation.
Kurti reacted by insisting that the problem is not management. we can not solve for 10 months what the LDK did not do for 20 years, he said. The Prime Minister added that no one wants electricity to become more expensive, but they have to pay for its import.
Kurti: Only yesterday we imported 2.5 million euros of energy, tell us where to find the money…
Deputies of the Assembly of Kosovo have discussed the price of electricity, following the proposal of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) to increase it.
Opposition lawmakers have accused the government of mismanaging the electricity situation and have opposed proposals to increase energy prices. They also interrupted the speech of the Deputy Prime Minister Besnik Bislimi, as the latter was told that they are manipulating the figures for price increase. Arben Gashi, head of the Parliamentary Group of the Democratic League of Kosovo, also accused Kurti of being incapable of managing the situation.
