Abstract

Legal uncertainties and gaps in the legislation of Kosovo are expressed in constitutions,
laws and other legal acts. Usually, these shortcomings are few in constitutions as the highest political
legal act of a state. However, these defects are noted in the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo.
They can be explicitly distinguished in the chapter on the President of the Republic of Kosovo. These
gaps are particularly evident in the case of resignation or death of the President. The article in the
Constitution does not foresee who should exercise the function of the president when the president
resigns or dies. Even more unclear situations we have when the president dies or resigns, at the time
when the Kosovo Assembly is dissolved. These two situations occurred in Kosovo in 2006 and 2010.
