EU’s Catherine Ashton is meeting on Wednesday in Brussels with prime ministers Ivica Dačić and Hashim Thaci to resolve the fate of the elections in Kosovo.
Diplomatic circles are announcing two possible outcomes – repeat voting at three polling places in northern Kosovska Mitrovica, or introduction of interim administration in the city, where elections will be repeated when the conditions are right, while the results of the November 3 elections in Leposavić, Zvečan and Zubin Potok would be accepted.
It is speculated that “Thaci today expects a relatively easy job, since Priština will be commended for the implementation of the Brussels agreement, while Dačić will have to explain what Belgrade meant by demanding to ‘intervene for 45 minutes and being order in northern Kosovska Mitrovica’ and why it didn’t use political means to provide normal conditions for voting.”
It is also expected that agreement would be reached on the “green light” to start talks of working group on property, air and rail transport in Kosovo.
Dačić announced on Tuesday that one of the topic in Brussels will be “annulment of elections in the north of Kosovo, and in all places where Serbs were intimidated and unable to vote.” He also announced “the beginning of activities to form the community of Serb municipalities.”
