Dear citizens of Kosova,

 

 

 

As the newly elected Prime Minister by your free will and vote, I am fully determined and committed to conscientiously invest all my potential and expertise, along with those of my staff, to achieving the objectives of all the people of Kosova by having regard at all times to the full respect of legal norms applicable in Kosova.

 

 

Meeting the objectives of the citizens of Kosova to build a state where there is rule of law requires not only preparing and adopting legal norms but also printing and publicizing them. Through the printing and publicizing of those norms, the citizens become closely familiar with the content of the legal norms and their rights and duties respectively.

 

I am very pleased that Kosova currently has an Office for the Managament and Administration of the Official Gazette within the Prime Minister’s Office which primarily deals with the printing and the publication of of all legal acts that are prepared and adopted by the Kosovo institutions.

Cizitens of Kosova, I can assure you that during my term of office, the Office for the Managament and Administration of the Official Gazette will have my full support with the goal for it to successfully fulfill its mandate which is the printing and publication of our country’s legal norms and legislation.

 

The printing and publication of legal norms is an essential condition to building a genuine democratic and law-abiding state.

By printing and publicizing legal norms, the Office for the Managament and Administration of the Official Gazette has enabled all the people of Kosova to gain an easy and quick access to the legislation of their country.

 

This way, the citizens of Kosova will be able find out about their righst and responsibilities with regard to one another and the state and to understand that all citizens, regardless of their background, are equal before the law.

 

The printing and publication of legal norms of the state contributes also to the raising of the legal awareness of the government officials and the citizens in general that only through the full application of legal norms in their daily lives can a genuinely democratic and law-abiding state be achieved and made to function to the benefit of all the citizens of Kosova.

 

I want to take this opportunity to thanks all those who have helped now and in the past as well as those who will help in the future to prepare, print and publicize our country’s legislation. At the same time, I wish the staff members of the Office for the Managament and Administration of the Official Gazette success in their very useful work in helping to build a state where there is rule of law.

 

Finallly, legal norms are printed and publicized with the aim to build a collective memory of the people and the country, establish a link between generations and legislatures and give momentum to life. The history of a country is connected to and transmitted thorugh laws.

 

Respectfully yours,

Hashim THAÇI

Prime Minister of Kosova
