Kosovo Lawmakers End Months Of Turmoil, Approve New Government With Hoti As PM

Lawmakers in Kosovo have approved a new government led by Avdullah Hoti, ending months of political turmoil.

The June 3 vote saw 61 deputies endorse the new administration, while 24 were against and one lawmaker abstained.

Former Prime Minister Albin Kurti’s leftist-nationalist Vetevendosje (Self-Determination) party, which had called for early general elections, did not vote.

The government will be led by Hoti’s center-right LDK party.

Hoti, a 44-year-old economics professor, was approved as the new prime minister by lawmakers.​
