Prime minister of Kosovo to resign in government reshuffle, officials say

Kosovo's prime minister, Bajram Kosumi, will resign on Wednesday as part of a broad government reshuffle, officials said.

Kosumi is a prominent member of the Kosovan team negotiating the province's future in ongoing U.N.-sponsored talks. Another key figure, parliament head Nexhat Daci, will also be replaced, senior officials from the government's two coalition partners told The Associated Press.

They said the reshuffle was to be announced later Wednesday, requesting anonymity because they were not permitted to talk to the media.

Kosumi's popularity has dropped sharply in Kosovo due to a perception that he is politically weak. He became prime minister following the resignation of Kosovo's former prime minister, Ramush Haradinaj, who was indicted last year for war crimes by the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague .

Kosovo's government is made up of the Democratic League of Kosovo and the minor Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, reports the AP.
