BELGRADE - The Serbian parliamentary committee on the judiciary and the committee on constitutional affairs and legislation approved on Thursday in principle amendments to the laws on government and ministries following a plenary debate that started in the afternoon.
The amendments are a prerequisite for electing the new government.
Kosovo's Constitutional Court on Monday declared that the government's request to change the constitution in order to transform the current Kosovo Security Force into a regular army was “acceptable”.
The proposed amendments to the constitution do not reduce any of the rights and freedoms guaranteed in Chapter II of the constitution, the court ruled.
