Matoshi for the deputies of July 2: They don’t make a law for them, they expect their death to be rare
On the 32nd anniversary of the announcement of the Constitutional Declaration, analyst Halil Matoshi said that the Assembly of Kosovo never made a law for the July 2 deputies, who he says have written the new history of Kosovo.
Through an article on the social network Facebook, Matoshi said that the Assembly of Kosovo is waiting for them to be thinned out by death, and that according to him, the law for these deputies captures a symbolic cost but respects and exalts the history of the state.
The declaration of July 2, 1990 was the act that will mark the historic institutional step of Kosovo’s independence, which took place outside the Parliament building, under conditions of siege by large police and military forces.
The Constitutional Declaration on Kosovo as an independent and equal entity within the Yugoslav federation or confederation was announced in Pristina by 111 Albanian delegates of the Assembly of Kosovo.
The declaration also marks the starting point for the independence of Kosovo from Serbia, aiming to be treated as equal to the then republics in the Yugoslav federation.
Halil Matoshi’s full post:
They write the new history of Kosovo
1. The Assembly of Kosovo has never internalized the Resolution as an official document of the state;
2. The Assembly of Kosovo has never added the Law on supplementary pension for deputies of July 2 and for those of 1991-1999 to the agenda;
3. The Assembly of Kosovo does not have the courage to deal with the past, because it does not know who is more deserving, those who stood up against oppression and persecution or those who came to freedom;
4. The Assembly of Kosovo expects that they will be thinned out by death, in order to pass a law that captures a symbolic cost but that respects and honors the history of the state…
PS I have heard similar words, “let it be untimely”, from important political actors for the Law on supplementary pensions for teachers from the 90s, but Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj did it in 2018, although he was under great pressure.
