The meaning of «avdullah hoti»

Avdullah Hoti (born 4 February 1976) is a Kosovan (Albanian) politician, who is serving as the Prime Minister of Kosovo[a] since 3 June 2020. He has served as the Minister of Finance of Kosovo between 2014 and 2017 in the PDK/LDK coalition government.

In September 2020, Hoti signed the agreement on the normalisation of economic relations with Serbia and accession to the Mini Schengen Zone, as well as on the mutual recognition between Kosovo and Israel and the establishment of the diplomatic relations. He has an active role in the European Union-mediated negotiations between the governments of Serbia and Kosovo.

He was the coalition's candidate for Prime Minister in the Kosovan parliamentary election of 2017. He became the head of the LDK parliamentary group from 2017 until 2020, when he took office as First Deputy Prime Minister.[1] He was nominated by the LDK to be his party's nominee for PM after the Kurti government failed a confidence vote, but his eligibility to be PM was questioned by Albin Kurti and his party on the grounds that one cannot form a government without first having the party that won the election enter government, and they demanded new elections. However, on 28 May 2020, the Constitution Court of Kosovo gave the right to the second party and Avdullah Hoti to form a government without elections. After the party that won the elections failed again to form a new government, the Court argued that Avdullah Hoti was eligible to proceed to be voted on by the Parliament as the new PM of the Republic of Kosovo. On 3 June 2020, Hoti was elected Prime Minister with 61 votes in favor, 24 against and one abstention.[2]

On 2 August 2020, Hoti announced on his Facebook page that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 suffering mild symptoms, and that he would work from home in the coming two weeks.[3]

On September 4, 2020, Hoti and Aleksandar Vučić, President of Serbia, signed an agreement on the normalisation of economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo at the White House in the presence of Donald Trump, President of the United States.[4] The deal will encompass freer transit, including by rail and road, while both parties agreed to work with the Export–Import Bank of the United States and the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation and to join the Mini Schengen Zone, but the agreement also included the mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo.[5][6]
