France and Germany demand new elections in the north of Kosovo

The new elections in the North of Kosovo are the solution of the international partners to put an end to the tensions that started on May 26.  

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, has said that Germany and France have asked Kosovo and Serbia to hold new elections in the municipalities in the north of Kosovo.

"France and Germany asked the leaders of Kosovo and Serbia to organize new elections in the regions affected by the unrest as soon as possible," Macron said.

He said that in the coming weeks there will be a "clear decision" on the situation in the north of Kosovo and that this was agreed upon during the meetings with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, and the local leaders - the President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osman, and the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic.

We recall that the situation in the north became tense, when the Kosovo Police helped the Albanian mayors of municipalities with a Serbian majority to enter the municipal offices, despite the resistance of the local residents.

The new Albanian mayors of the municipalities of North Mitrovica, Zveçan, Zubin Potok and Leposaviq have emerged from the extraordinary elections of April 23, which were boycotted by the Serbian community.
