The Embassies of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States congratulate the Central Election Commission, political parties, and voters of Gllogovc/Glogovac for the December 4 first round of the extraordinary mayoral elections, which observers generally characterized as well organized and conducted in a positive atmosphere. These elections demonstrated a strong commitment by all actors, including citizens, to promote democratic institutions and hold elections that were in line with international standards.
We similarly hope that the run-off elections on December 18 will be free, fair, and transparent. We support the efforts of domestic and international organizations accredited by the CEC to monitor the conduct of the elections. This election is an opportunity to demonstrate further commitment to democratic development in Kosovo. We encourage Gllogovc/Glogovac citizens to exercise their democratic right to vote for the candidate they think is best able to manage their municipality.
