The Parliament of Kosovo announced the dissolution. The corresponding decision was supported by 89 out of 120 deputies, Parliament Speaker Kadri Veseli said on Thursday in Pristina. Extraordinary elections should be held within 45 days, DW reported.

A month ago, after the resignation of Kosovo’s PM, Ramush Haradinaj, several parties immediately called for early elections. Haradinaj justified the resignation by a summons to the war crimes special tribunal in The Hague during the war in Kosovo. At the hearing in late July, he remained silent and only at the very end stated that he always acted in accordance with the rule of law.

During the war in Kosovo in 1998-99, Ramush Haradinaj commanded the UCK Kosovo rebel army. Serbian authorities accuse him of crimes against the Serb minority in Kosovo during the war years. The war in Kosovo killed more than 13 thousand people.
