The government cabinet of Kosovo has announced that Kosovar Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, had finally made November 28, neighboring Albania's independence day, a non-working day in Kosovo.

The Law on Official Holidays, passed almost ten years ago (2008-05-24) incorporated three holidays requested by Albanian deputies, including November 28, but only as an observance day (ie. not a non-working public holiday).

Then, in late 2012, the Kosovo Assembly had approved amendments to the current Law on Official Holidays to include November 28 as a new annual public holiday to commemorate the Flag Day of Kosovo (2012-11-20). However, since then all the annual declarations of public holidays in Kosovo (2017-01-13, 2017-01-09, 2016-01-11, 2016-01-07, 2014-11-28, 2014-01-08 and 2013-01-11), neglected to include November 28.
