In the premises of the Kosovo Agency of Statistics (KAS), the Language Commissioner Slavisa Mladenovic held a meeting with the Chief Executive Officer Isa Krasniqi, where they discussed a range of issues related to the usage of official languages in questionnaires and other accompanying documents for the 2021 Census, including an awareness and information campaign for citizens.

The Office of Language Commissioner (OLC) has come to the understanding of KAS in continuing cooperation between the two institutions with the aim of increasing the level of implementation of the Law on the Use of Languages, as well as providing advisory opportunities and appropriate recommendations to KAS related to the use of official languages.

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.
