Kosovo’s central bank governor, Bedri Hamza, has resigned to become the country’s finance minister.
Hamza said he is leaving the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo, apparently with immediate effect, in a statement issued on September 10 in Albanian and Serbian. He was appointed governor on March 26, 2013.
In a statement in Albanian, the central bank board says it has appointed deputy governor Fehmi Mehmeti as interim governor. The statement, published today (September 12), is undated.
