Prishtina, 2 December 2013 - The Head of EU Office / EU Special Representative, Samuel Žbogar has congratulated all the people of Kosovo for their participation in the election process.
“I also want to congratulate all the newly-elected mayors and those mayors who were reconfirmed for a new term in office. I am looking very much forward to start working with everyone elected to accelerate Kosovo’s European future. The fact that elections were for the first time organised across the whole of Kosovo is a major success.
The EU Election Observation Mission will be issuing a preliminary statement tomorrow which will look in more detail into how the 2nd round of local elections was carried out. I commend the CEC, OSCE and the security institutions – State Prosecutor’s Office, Kosovo Police, EULEX and KFOR, for their effective role in making these elections possible regardless of their complexity”, says the Head of EU Office / EU Special Representative, Samuel Žbogar.
