U.S. Embassy, OSCE Joint Statement Opposing Political Intimidation

The U.S. Embassy and the OSCE Mission in Kosovo call upon all Kosovo political parties and entities to cease any and all forms of political intimidation. Kosovo candidates have a fundamental, democratic right to wage campaigns based on their highest ideals for the future of this society and must be able to do so free from intimidation and threats.  We call upon all political leaders to reject and condemn all forms of intimidation, and for the Election Task Force to vigorously investigate all reports of any misguided attempt to manipulate this democratic process.
