Kosovo coalition teeters

2010-10-16 16:37
Pristina - A junior partner in Kosovo's coalition government says it is pulling out, likely leading to a snap general election.

The Democratic League of Kosovo, or LDK, the party of late President Ibrahim Rugova, said in a statement on Saturday that its six Cabinet members will resign their posts on Monday.

No reason for the walkout was given, but friction within the two partners that oversaw Kosovo's secession from Serbia in 2008 has plagued the government and crippled plans to privatise Kosovo's telecommunications provider.

Last week President Fatmir Sejdiu of the LDK was forced to resign after a top court ruled he breached the country's constitution, further souring relations between the parties.
