Kosovo Foundation for Open Society (KFOS) has launched the campaign “Vote and Observe” inviting citizens to report every irregularity noticed during voting day for the early parliamentary elections on June 8.

Head of KFOS, Luan Shllaku says that this will be possible by sending a free SMS at 500 88,

Shllaku says that citizens play a major role in the progress of the country.

“Vote and Observe campaign is a big campaign without a particular leadership. We’re at the service of the people, we’re not leaders of this campaign. We serve to the citizens with technology in order to offer them the opportunity to report how these elections are going”, said Shllaku.

“I hope these elections will be better than last ones. For us, a large number of texts is an indicator of success”, added he.

For the first time in 2013, citizens of Kosovo were able to be observers, by sending around 12 thousand texts reporting irregularities during the election process. /ibna/
