Election of Kosovo’s president was unconstitutional

pacolli-gaddafiPRISTINA, Kosovo ++ The election of Kosovo’s president last month was unconstitutional – Kosovo’s highest court ruled today after a complaint of oppo-sition parties. The Constitutional Court "by majority vote, with two judges dissenting, declared the decision of the assembly of the Republic of Kosovo … concerning the election of the president of the Republic of Kosovo, dated 22 February 2011, unconstitutional," … without giving further reasons for its decision. The ruling was the second against a Kosovo head of state in six months. President Fatmir Sejdiu resigned in September after the same court said he violated the constitution by also serving as a party leader. It remained unclear whether there would be another vote in the parliament or if the president had to resign. See MSN, BBC, ER
