    Serbs boycotted en masse the local elections organized by the regime in Prishtina on Sunday. The special elections were held in North Mitrovica, Zubin Potok, Zvecan, and Leposavic after Serb officials there resigned last fall in protest over abuses by Kurti’s government. Goran Rakić, leader of Serbian List, the main political formation representing Serbs in Kosovo, had urged Serbs to boycott the election. He posted the reasons for the boycott on his Facebook account:

    • Because of every unjustly arrested Serb;
    • Because of every lie told by Kurti;
    • Because of every bullet fired at Serbian children;
    • Because of the everyday repression suffered by the Serbian people;
    • Due to the constant harassment of Serbs by special police units in the north;
    • Because of the fear among Serbs sown by Kurti’s politics;
    • Because of every desecrated Serbian shrine and every destroyed monument;
    • !! Boycott the illegitimate and illegal elections!!

    According to Petar Petković, Director of the Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo and Metohija, 1,566 Albanians and only 13 persons of Serbian nationality voted in the elections in four Serb-majority municipalities in northern Kosovo and Metohija, out of a total of 45,095 eligible voters. Only two Serbs voted in the north of Kosovska Mitrovica, seven in Leposavic, four in Zvecan, and none in Zubin Potok.

    Speaking at a press conference in Belgrade, Petković accused authorities in the autonomous province of holding anti-democratic elections held in containers under guard by Kosovo police carrying long pipes. He added that the authorities in Prishtina had tried all possible means in the days preceding the election to force Serbs to vote.

    Petković pointed out that 449 fewer Albanians voted than in the previous election, which he argued was a sign that Albanians also boycotted the elections. The Director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija said that this represents a complete defeat for the prime minister and the president of the temporary Pristina institutions – Albin Kurti and Vjosa Osmani.

    Petković added, “The real winner is the Serbian people who completely boycotted the elections, because they do not want the occupation of the north. This is a defeat for the international community that supported Kurti.”
