They won more votes with higher turnout than in the 2017 local elections, Tanjug said it received confirmation from that political organization.

"Our candidates achieved a convincing, absolute victory in the municipalities of Leposavic, Zubin Potok, Zvecan and North Kosovska Mitrovica," the Serb List announced late on Sunday, adding:

"With this the Serb people in Kosovo and Metohija once again unambiguously and almost unanimously confirmed their readiness to defend their survival and political rights in Kosovo and Metohija, and the organic connection with their state, Serbia."

The Serb List also assessed that the call to boycott the election, coming from those in Serbia "who wanted to push the north of Kosovo and Metohija into the hands of Albanians," had failed.
