Kosovar parliament adopted constitution
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On April 9, 2008, the Assembly of Kosovo adopted a draft constitution, which had been signed earlier that week by top Kosovo officials. The week before, the EU certified that the constitution was in line with its international obligations, guaranteeing the individual and community rights of all its citizens. Kosovo's constitution was scheduled to become effective at the same time that EULEX Kosovo, a 1,800-strong EU police and justice mission, was to assume authority from the UN Mission in Kosovo. The transition occurred despite reservations from some EU member states that have declined to recognize Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia.
