The Language Policy Board held a meeting

03.09.2018

3 September 2018
Pristina


Today, at the meeting of the Language Policy Board were discussed several important issues.
It was discussed about the procedure for selecting and appointing the Language Commissioner, since in December 2018 the mandate of the Language Commissioner expires, so the board agreed to continue with regular procedures.
According to the chairperson, Mr Hysni Shala, it is important to respect all legal deadlines so that there is no delay in appointing the commissioner.

On the other hand, the Language Commissioner, Mr Mladenovic presented to the board the sixth-month work report of the Office, where he presented some of the challenges but also concrete results in respecting the language rights and full implementation of the Law on the Use of Languages.

The Language Policy Board will hold the next meeting after two weeks.  

Office of the Language Commissioner was established in April 2012 under auspices of the Office of the Prime Minister, pursuant to Regulation br.07/2012. The Office is mandated to oversee the implementation of the law on languages, works with institutions to improve the implementation of the law and promote and protect the right on the use of the language of all communities in Kosovo.
