Template:Politics of Kosovo The Assembly of Kosovo (Albanian: Kuvendi i Kosovës; Serbian: Скупштина Косова / Skupština Kosova) was originally established by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo in 2001[1] to provide 'provisional, democratic self-government'.

On February 17, 2008, representatives of the people of Kosovo, acting outside the UNMIK's PISG framework (not representing the Assembly of Kosovo or any other of these institutions),[2] declared that Kosovo is independent from Serbia and subsequently adopted a constitution, which came into effect on 15 June 2008.

The Assembly of the new Republic of Kosovo[a] is regulated by the Constitution of Kosovo and has 120 members; of these, 100 are directly voted into the Assembly whilst the rest are reserved as follows:
