The Serbian parliament committee for Kosovo and Metohija on Tuesday called for all citizens in Kosovo not to vote in the local elections there, scheduled for November 15.
“The committee for Kosovo and Metohija calls for all citizens in the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija not to vote in the coming local elections there, organized by secessionists and separatists,” the conclusions from a session of the committee were quoted as saying.
They state that the elections are in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1244 and the Serbian Constitution.
Assistant Minister for Kosovo and Metohija Bojan Andjelkovic on Tuesday said that the Serbian president, government and minister for Kosovo and Metohija had stressed multiple times that “the conditions are not right for Serbs to vote in the so called elections.”
A breakaway province of Serbia, ethnic Albanian-dominated Kosovo unilaterally declared independence in February 2008. However, Serbia has vowed it would never recognize Kosovo’s independence, regarding the move illegal and in contrary with international law.
