Under the constitution of Kosovo, the president is elected by the parliament. A special parliamentary session to elect the president convened on Saturday and continued this Sunday as there was no quorum achieved.
Osmani, 38, got 71 votes from the 82 lawmakers present at the session on Sunday. Her candidacy was proposed by Prime Minister Albin Kurti's ruling Vetevendosje party.
Osmani has been serving as the acting president of Kosovo since November after Hashim Thaci resigned after being charged with war crimes.
