Constitution and law

The Assembly of Kosovo (Albanian: Kuvendi i Kosovës; Serbian: Скупштина Косова / Skupština Kosova) was originally established by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo in 2001[1] to provide 'provisional, democratic self-government'.

On February 17, 2008, representatives of the people of Kosovo, acting outside the UNMIK's PISG framework (not representing the Assembly of Kosovo or any other of these institutions),[2] declared that Kosovo is independent from Serbia and subsequently adopted a constitution, which came into effect on 15 June 2008.

The Assembly of the new 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:

Committees[edit]

The Kosovo Assembly has 19 committees:

  • Budget Committee

Notes and references[edit]

Notes:

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Kosovo. The latter declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. Kosovo's independence has been recognised by 107 out of 193 United Nations member states.
