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 to provide 'provisional, democratic self-government'.
On February 17, 2008, individual members of the Assembly of Kosovo (acting in personal capacity and not binding the Assembly itself), 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 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:
- 10 seats for the representatives of the Serbs.
- 4 seats for the representatives of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians.
- 3 seats for the Bosniaks, Montenegrins, Croats, Hungarians, Toskan
- 2 seats for the Turks.
- 1 seat for the Gorans.

Famous quotes containing the word assembly:
“There is a sacred horror about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills; but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling.”
—Victor Hugo (18021885)
