In the first anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo, AAB College and the Institute for Constitutional and Parliamentary Studies held the thematic roundtable “10 years of Constitution”. The Rector of AAB College, Lulzim Tafa, reminded on this occasion the time of the adoption of the Kosovo Constitution, as he said, for less than two months after the declaration of Kosovo’s independence, thus securing a constitutional order based on the principles of liberty, peace and values outlined in Article 7 of the Constitution.
Rector Tafa also assessed that the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo is one of the best constitutions not only in Europe but also beyond: “The Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo with its 162 articles distributed in 14 chapters is among the best constitutions not only in the region, but also in Europe and beyond”.
On the institutional responsibility for the implementation of the Constitution in this table spoke Minister of Justice, Abelard Tahiri, who said today ten years after this great political, juridical and historical event, we are proud that we have proven that we know to appreciate the importance of the Constitution and its implementation. He said we still have a lot of work to do, but our commitments to the functions of the Constitution will remain at the center of institutional and social engagement in the future as well.
“Given the weight of institutional responsibility and the commitment to drafting, developing and advancing public policy in the field of justice, I consider that we still have a lot of work to do for the functions of the Constitution to empower the state, protect freedom and give stability to governance will continue to remain in the epicenter of institutional and social engagement even in the following periods”, said Minister Tahiri.
