Parliamentary elections were held in Kosovo on 6 October 2019.
On 19 July 2019 Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj resigned after being summoned for questioning by the KSC in The Hague, Netherlands. The constitution requires the President to designate a new candidate to either form a government, or hold new elections in between 30 to 45 days after consultation with political parties or coalitions who hold a majority in the Assembly,
On 5 August 2019, the Assembly of Kosovo agreed to hold an extraordinary session on 22 August, planning to disband itself so that elections could be scheduled. Subsequently, on 22 August 2019, MPs voted to dissolve parliament, with 89 of the 120 voting in favour, necessitating elections within 30–45 days.
The 120 members of the Assembly are elected by open list proportional representation, with 20 seats reserved for national minorities. There is a 5% threshold to obtain seats in the Assembly for non-minority parties.

The preliminary results do not include conditional or mail ballots, or ballots for those with special needs.
The main opposition parties in Kosovo received the most votes, led by VV and the LDK. Vetëvendosje leader Albin Kurti is expected to be the most likely candidate for Prime Minister, and would most likely form a governing coalition with the LDK on an anti-corruption platform. If this occurs, he will be the first Prime Minister who had not been a fighter of the KLA during the 1990s. The pro-government NISMA–AKR–PD alliance fell only a few hundred votes short of meeting the 5% electoral threshold, and thus lost all 10 of their combined seats.
