Isa Mustafa's government in Kosovo was defeated on Wednesday after MPs backed an opposition motion of no-confidence.

Of 120 MPs in parliament, 78 voted for the motion, with only 34 backing the current government.

Along with the opposition Vetevendosje party, MPs from the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, AAK, and NISMA, and some deputies from the ruling Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, also voted against the government.

Mustafa’s government became the third in Kosovo in a row to fall without completing its four-year term.
