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 words president of and/or president:

    What are men celebrating? They are all on a committee of arrangements, and hourly expect a speech from somebody. God is only the president of the day, and Webster is his orator.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The President has paid dear for his White House. It has commonly cost him all his peace, and the best of his manly attributes. To preserve for a short time so conspicuous an appearance before the world, he is content to eat dust before the real masters who stand erect behind the throne.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
