Despite being subject to a territorial dispute, Kosovo has a government. The Republic of Kosovo is headed by a government that is headed by a prime minister. The Assembly elects the prime minister, who heads the government. The government is also composed of government ministers. The prime minister nominates his government’s ministers who are later confirmed by the Assembly. It should include all ethnic groups in Kosovo.

Parliamentary elections in Kosovo are held after every three years. Under Kosovo’s Constitution, elections are held for the assembly, which in turn elects the president and prime minister. The assembly has 120 members, a hundred elected and the twenty representing national minorities (10 for Serbians, 4 Romani, Askali and Egyptians, 3 for Bosniaks, 2 for Turks and one seat for the Gorans). The president of Kosovo is the representative of Kosovo in the country and abroad. A president of Kosovo can only serve two five-year terms while the term of the prime minister is not limited, remains in the confidence of the legislature.

The Constitution of Kosovo regulates the Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo. It is built in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. It was built on a ground that used to be known as Bazaar of Pristina. In a "destroy the old, build the new" slogan in the 1950s and 1960s, old buildings were brought down and news ones built, amongst them the Assembly of Kosovo.

A coalition government is necessary in order to succeed in Kosovo. The political parties of Kosovo include the PANA Coalition, the LA Coalition, and the Serb List.
