Kosovo’s New President Officially Takes Office

Kosovo’s new President Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu officially took office on Tuesday, two days after her election by the Assembly.

The President’s Office announced previously that an inauguration ceremony will not take place because of the situation with COVID-19 pandemic.

Osmani was elected with 71 votes of the 82 MPs attending the session. She will lead the country for the next five years.

She will pay homage to memorials commemorating former President Ibrahim Rugova, the Jashari family massacred by Serbian forces in 1998,  rape victims, and missing persons.

In another meeting planned for today, Osmani will receive the Commander of Kosovo Security Force, Lieutenant General Rrahman Rama.
