OPPOSITION lawmakers in Kosovo have again disrupted Parliament with tear gas, in a continuing protest against deals with Serbia and Montenegro.
Glauk Konjufca of the main Opposition Self-Determination Movement Party on Monday said that party members won’t allow sessions to be held until the government renounces a deal with Serbia giving more powers to ethnic-Serb communities in Kosovo and another with Montenegro on border demarcation. “There will be confrontation. We shall not allow holding of the assembly sessions,” Konjufca said when he was told the governing majority would hold the session in another hall. In the past three months, the opposition has disrupted parliament with tear gas, pepper spray, whistles and water bottles.
