The Kosovo parliament approved the appointment of the country’s first constitutional judges on Friday (May 15th), media reported. They include four Albanians, a Serb, and a Turk. Kosovo’s constitutional court will have a total of nine judges.
The remaining three judges will be foreigners, named by Peter Feith, head of the International Civilian Office (ICO) in Kosovo. The judges will have a nine-year mandate without the possibility of renewal, while the head of the Constitutional Court will be elected with the votes of the judges.
