Constitution and law

The Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Kuvendi i Republikës së Kosovës; Serbian: Скупштина Републике Косово) was originally established by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo in 2001[2] to provide 'provisional, democratic self-government'.

On February 17, 2008, representatives of the people of Kosovo[3] declared that Kosovo is independent from Serbia and subsequently adopted a constitution, which came into effect on 15 June 2008.

The Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo[a] is regulated by the Constitution of Kosovo and has 120 members; of these, 100 are directly voted into the Assembly whilst the rest are reserved as follows:

Albanian is the official language of the majority, but all languages of minorities such as Serbian, Turkish and Bosnian are used, with simultaneous interpretation.

Notes and references

Notes:

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 111 out of 193 United Nations member states.
