The Prime Minister of the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Kryeministri i Republikës së Kosovës, Serbian: Премијер Републике Косово/Premijer Republike Kosovo) is the head of government of Kosovo[a].

The Prime Minister and the Government of Kosovo, which he or she heads, are responsible for their actions to the Assembly of Kosovo, of which they must all be members. The position of Prime Minister of the Government of Kosovo is currently vacant. The most recent holder, Ramush Haradinaj, resigned in July 2019 after being summoned for questioning by the KSC in The Hague, Netherlands.[1] However, he remains in office as Acting Prime Minister until after elections are held on 6 October[2] and a new Prime Minister is approved by the Assembly and sworn into office.

Notes[edit]

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states, while 12 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
