The government was sworn in at an official ceremony on February 4, 2020 at 11:00 AM Kosovo time.
On March 25th, Kurti loses the support of Parliament on a no-confidence motion which was passed with 82 votes in favor, 32 against, and one abstention.
Kurti becomes effectively 'Acting' Prime Minister as of March 25, 2020 pending a replacement. President Hashim Thaçi asks Kurti to propose a candidate for prime minister on April 10, 15, and 17.
Receiving no response, Thaçi hands the mandate to form a new government to the Democratic League of Kosovo on April 23, 2020.
