Politics

As a province of Serbia, Kosovo has been under the administration of the UN since June 10, 1999. On February 17, 2008, the Kosovar government unilaterally declared independence as the “Republic of Kosovo”. On June 15, 2008, the constitution of Kosovo came into force. On the basis of this constitution, Kosovo is a parliamentary republic. The head of state is the president elected by parliament with a two-thirds majority for a term of five years (re-election possible once). On the proposal of the parliamentary majority, he appoints the prime minister, who heads the government. The unicameral parliament with 120 members is re-elected every four years. In the first two legislative periods, 20 seats are reserved for the various minorities, ten of them for the Serb minority.

History

In the parliamentary elections on October 6, 2019, the Vetevendosja (VV, self-determination) was the strongest force with 31 out of 120 seats. The second strongest party was the conservative LDK (Democratic League) with 30 seats under the leadership of Vjosa Osmani (* 1982). The top candidate of VV Albin Kurti (* 1975) competed against the political establishment that had ruled the country for two decades since 1999. The ruling party PDK had 25 seats (2014: 39 seats). An underdeveloped economy, the high poverty rate of 40%, persistent migratory pressure, a poorly protected social system, nepotism and organized crime were the issues that caused the population to vote out the corrupt government. The former student leader and left activist Kurti had abandoned many of his extreme substantive demands, such as the state unification of Kosovo with Albania, and had become a potential interlocutor for representatives of the international community and possible coalition members. 120 days after the election, the representatives of the LDK and VV agreed on their government cooperation. According to the constitution, some ethnic minority parties are also involved in the governing coalition. The cabinet was downsized for cost reasons. For the first time since the withdrawal of Serbian troops 20 years ago, there are no KLA members in the government. On 3.2.2020 A. Kurti was elected Prime Minister with 66 out of 120 votes, only 50 days later he was overthrown by a vote of no confidence. After a transitional government under A. Hoti, the Vetevendosje under Kurti again won the majority in the parliamentary elections on February 14, 2021.
