Kosovo is set for early elections next month following the collapse of the grand coalition that declared independence from Serbia.
The result of the no-confidence vote will delay the start of the European Union sponsored talks with Serbia. But Kosovo’s prime minister praised the outcome.
“To me this decision is a responsible one which will mark a new beginning for the country of Kosovo and its citizens. I will fufill my obligations in government and resign,” said Hashim Thaci.
The Balkan country’s political turmoil follows the resignation of the president after a court ruled he could not be a party leader and head of state.
