Kosovo President; Woman emerge the world youngest head of state at 38-year-old.

Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu Kosovo: Kosovo’s new president took office on Tuesday, becoming the country’s youngest head of state and one of the youngest in the world.
Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu, 38, was elected to a five-year term on Sunday by Kosovo’s Assembly, or Parliament making her the Balkan nation’s second female leader in the post-war period.

Osmani-Sadriu took office Tuesday in a ceremony with a guard of honour. Acting President Glauk Konjufca handed over the country’s constitution, avoiding a more formal ceremony due to the pandemic.

Osmani-Sadriu was formerly acting president from November until late March. She replaced Hashim Thaci, who resigned after facing charges for  War crimes and crimes against humanity at a special court based in The Hague.
Thaci was a guerrilla leader during Kosovo’s war for independence from Serbia in the late 1990s.
The post of Kosovo’s president is largely ceremonial, but she also plays a leading role in foreign policy and as the commander of the armed forces.
