President's Veto and His Role in Parliamentary Republics: Case of Kosovo

Zahir Çerkini


This paper, through an analysis and constitutional point of view, will clarify the constitutional position of the President that he has in parliamentary republics. This will be possible by reflecting the principle of separation of powers, its philosophy and its attitude toward the role of the head of state in parliamentarianism. The starting point of this writing is the analysis of the separation of powers and the impact of this principle on the democratization of countries. The reports that the President has with the Assembly will be addressed in this article in particular. Moreover, we will address the specifics that point out the role and position of the President in the Parliamentary Republic. Also, addressing the veto of the president as an institution that affirms the balancing power of the Assembly will prove its special position within the system itself. Kosovo, its constitution and its principles will be an inseparable part of this paper. The Republic of Kosovo has embraced the principle of the separation of powers, and has established a typical parliamentary system of government whereby the President has reserved a neutral position among all other powers.
