The local government elections that were held in Kosovo on 22 October, have given shape to a new political map compared to the local government elections of 3 November 2013.
The largest parties which have governed the country in the recent years, in both government levels, see themselves in serious trouble.
Although the majority of communes will hold a second round of voting, analysts say that coalitions were punished, while the new political map will be decided once the second round of voting takes place.
Based on the preliminary results of the Central Election Commission, 19 out of 38 communes will hold a second round of voting.
Meanwhile, Democratic League of Kosovo has won in 4 communes, while in 12 others it will head to a runoff. In 2013, LDK had won in three communes in the first round.
The Democratic Party of Kosovo has only won in one commune, while losing several communes which were known to be its strongholds. Meanwhile, this party will participate in the second round of elections in 9 communes.
Alliance for the Future of Kosovo has won 2 communes, while it will dispute another 5 during the second round of voting.
So far, Self Determination has not managed to win any communes in the first round of elections, but it will try and win six communes during the second round of voting, including Pristina and several other cities such as Gjilan and Prizren.
Meanwhile, the Serb List has won in 9 communes, while in 1 commune, it will participate in the runoff. /balkaneu.com/
