Around 13 thousand people who live in Serbia, will participate in the early parliamentary elections expected to be held on June 8 in Kosovo.

Based on the Central Election Commission’s decision and based on the operational plan, the registration period for voting outside the country which started on May 13, has ended on May 19.

This period has seen the registration of those voters who live in Serbia and who will vote in Kosovo.

In total, 12 thousand and 901 citizens of Kosovo who live in Serbia, will be taken into consideration for the early parliamentary elections of June 8.

Serbia is followed by Switzerland in terms of the number of voters. 1169 demands have been approved from this country.

Member of CEC from Self Determination, Adnan Rrustemi says that an artificial increase of the number of voters from Serbia is being done.

“With the applications brought from Serbia, there are unlawful attempts to increase the number of voters and fulfill the objectives of Belgrade to achieve the numbers needed for the guarantees seats in the parliament of Kosovo by running through a joint list of Serb parties”.

Serb parties may change the calculations made by big parties in the country, as far as the possible governing coalitions are concerned, say experts of political affairs.

They have declared that with the current mobilization of Serb parties, there can be unpleasant surprises for Albanian political parties, because Serb parties, besides guaranteed seats, can also win another 10 seats and thus become the second or the third biggest political  force in Kosovo. /ibna/
