Prishtina, October 25, 2018 – The President of the Republic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, participated in the marking of the 9th anniversary of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Kosovo.
President Thaçi has said that the Constitutional Court is one of the most important and one of the most successful institutions in Kosovo.
“The independence, integrity, professionalism, vision that the Constitutional Court has shown since its foundation, are an example for all. These virtues are a model for the other institutions as to how to work and how to protect the state. The Constitutional Court should continue to play a role in the protection of the Constitution and in its final interpretation. By defending the constitutional order, you protect the state of Kosovo, you protect the foundations of our state”, said President Thaçi.
The rule of law in general, according to President Thaçi, is one of the basic principles upon which we have built the state and society of Kosovo.
“Equality before the law, the protection of citizens’ dignity, the compensation and rehabilitation of victims are principles of our society. The Constitutional Court, with its work, ensures that these rights are guaranteed to every citizen of Kosovo”, he added.
Addressing the judges of the Constitutional Court, President Thaçi has said that thanks to their professionalism, the Constitutional Court now fully functions with local judges.
“This is the merit of the professional work, your dedication to protect the law and the Constitution. Each of these achievements is another major step towards the full consolidation of the state of Kosovo”, said President Thaçi.
The Head of State has requested from the Constitutional Court judges to remain steadfast as hitherto in their work.
