Former prime minister Isa Mustafa has resigned from his position as leader of LDK after the party’s poor performance at Sunday’s parliamentary election.
After Sunday’s election, Kosovo is set to have its first ever government not to feature either PDK or LDK, as Vetevendosje inherits a country eager for change but short on patience.
Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurti described early election results placing his party on around 48 percent of the vote as a triumph for the people, while PDK and LDK both conceded defeat late on Sunday night.
Three exit polls released as voting closed in Sunday’s parliamentary election put Vetevendosje in first place with between 42 and 53 percent of the vote.
Despite the subzero temperatures and heavy snowfall, more than 145,000 voters had cast their ballots by 11 a.m. in Kosovo’s fourth parliamentary election in less than seven years.
