The current political class in Kosovo may give the appearance of stability, but it is incapable of delivering good governance, European integration and most importantly, people’s basic wellbeing.
Kosovo’s first contractual agreement with the EU, the Stabilization and Association Agreement, SAA, entered into force in April 2016. At the end of that year, former Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj wrote an op-ed for Zeri newspaper stating that 2017 would be the year when Kosovo obtained EU candidate status. Amid the prevailing euphoria, Hoxhaj also stated that Kosovo would apply for Council of Europe membership by January 2018 at the latest.
