President of Kosovo

The President of the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Kryetari i Kosovës; Serbian Cyrillic: председник Косова) is the head of state of the Republic of Kosovo. The President of Kosovo is elected by the Assembly of Kosovo. The first post-war president, who served until his death in January 2006, was Ibrahim Rugova. His successor was Fatmir Sejdiu. When Sejdiu resigned from his post on 27 September 2010, Jakup Krasniqi served as acting president. On 22 February 2011, Behgjet Pacolli was elected as a president of Kosovo, which was quickly evaluated as unconstitutional move. On 6 April 2011 Behgjet Pacolli stepped down, but that another candidate would be elected to serve for up to a year. A constitutional reform will be undertaken to allow for a popular vote for the president in 2012. Atifete Jahjaga, General Major of the Kosovo Police, was announced as a candidate for the office.

Famous quotes containing the word president:

    I shouldn’t want you to be surprised, or to draw any particular inference from my making speeches, or not making speeches, out there. I don’t recall any candidate for President that ever injured himself very much by not talking.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
