Osmani: We are ready to consider holding new elections

President Vjosa Osmani confirmed that Kosovo is ready to organize new elections in the northern part of Kosovo.

She said that this request was made by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, and the German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, REL reports.

"I told them that we are ready to consider this possibility ," Osmani said.

"They asked Kosovo to find a way to hold new elections in the north that would give Serbian citizens the opportunity to participate and elect presidents with greater legitimacy," Osmani said .

Osmani has stated that the organization of new elections is allowed by the legal regulation of Kosovo and this, according to the president, can be done through a petition that can be initiated by the Serbian citizens of the northern municipalities.

" This means that Serbian citizens, that is, about 20 percent of them who are on the voting list, can sign a petition and through it can initiate the process of new elections. We are ready to follow the law" , declared President Osmani.

Referring to the situation in the northern municipalities, Leposaviq, North Mitrovica, Zubin Potok and Zveçan, Osmani said that the situation can only be improved if Serbia stops the criminal gangs there.

"There may be an extension of the situation, but the extension starts in Belgrade, stopping these criminal gangs from causing violence in the north of Kosovo against innocent citizens. This is key and we have asked for this to happen" , said Osmani.
