Almost two million voters registered in Kosovo

September 19, 2019

More than 1.9 million people have the right to vote at the October 6 parliamentary elections in Kosovo, the Central Election Commission said on Thursday.

A Commission press release said that 1,937,869 voters are registered for the elections which is 111,733 more than at the local elections in 2017.

Voters will cast ballots at 2,547 polling stations which is 42 more than in 2017. The Commission said it had established 895 voter centers which is four less than at earlier elections.

A total of 46,917 names of people who died since the previous elections have been removed from the electoral rolls.  

Party of Kosovo Serbs leader Aleksandar Jablanovic said that his party would try to win seats in parliament but would not enter the government at any cost like the Serb List has done. He recalled that the Serb List was formed in agreement with the Serbian government to provide Kosovo Serbs with a means for political action which did not mean that they should be obedient to Belgrade. “We were tricked because Belgrade wanted to use us as a bargaining chip,” the former Serb List official said.

Serbian government Office for Kosovo chief Marko Djuric called the Kosovo Serbs to support the Serb List which he said is Serbia’s state project which would secure ties with Serbia and the survival of the Serbs in Kosovo.
