Kosovo’s acting president, Jakup Krasniqi, dissolved parliament and announced elections after the government failed to secure a vote of confidence on Nov. 2.

On Oct. 28, opposition lawmakers in Kosovo called for a vote of no confidence after President Fatmir Sejdiu’s party, the Democratic League of Kosovo, quit the coalition. The motion has the backing of 40 lawmakers out of a total of 120, prompting the country’s parliament to vote within the next five days whether or not to ax the current government, Reuters reports.

Krasniqi said elections are slated for Dec. 12, Reuters reports.
