From celebrations on election night back in October 2019, to the surprise ousting of Vetëvendosje’s Albin Kurti as Prime Minister in March 2020, and finally to the fresh confirmation of the Democratic League of Kosovo’s Avdullah Hoti as government lead in June 2020, citizens of Kosovo have faced a roller coaster of political developments in the past months. Such political turmoil happened in parallel to the COVID-19 pandemic’s further thwarting of the country.

Kosovar citizens were recently presented with the new government plan led by Hoti and his proposed cabinet. It is a motivated plan which lays out all the right priorities and objectives, matched with a hopeful flare of ambiguity for long-term strategies. From the current handling and forthcoming economic aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic to diplomatic aims, the key priorities of the government say a lot about the new government’s ambition.

This policy analysis will start by examining how the new Hoti government came to be appointed, followed by exploring the 2020-2023 government plan it presented to the public. This document will look at the key priorities of the plan and particularly concentrate on its foreign policy aims tied to the Dialogue with Serbia and EU integration. Other fields related to the different Ministries will also be addressed so citizens at large know what bets to keep an eye out throughout the recently-approved cabinet’s work.
