Kosovo: International community is calling for free and fair elections

With the start of the election campaign for the local government elections, embassies of France, Germany, Italy, UK and USA are calling on all political parties and their candidates to engage in a quiet and democratic campaign.

According to them, people deserve an open and transparent electoral process, where all candidates are entitled to be heard by the voters, where all media have the right to broadcast information on the elections and where all voters are entitled to decide without pressure.

“We’d like to stress that the freedom of political convictions and freedom of speech are guaranteed in a democratic society and we condemn everyone who attempts to mine the electoral process”, the statement of the largest embassies in Pristina reads among others. /balkaneu.com/
