Kosovo MPs dissolve parliament, paving way for snap poll

Published: Updated:

Kosovo MPs voted on Thursday to dissolve parliament, a move that will force the president to call for early elections within 45 days.

“The parliament decided to dissolve the sixth legislature of the assembly,” parliamentary speaker Kadri Veseli said after 89 lawmakers in the 120-member body backed the motion.

The vote comes after outgoing Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, a former commander of Kosovo’s guerilla forces during its 1990s war with Serbia, resigned last month to face summons from a war crimes court in The Hague.
