The repeated parliamentary elections in Kosovska Mitrovica held on Sunday went by peacefully, without any incidents, and Serbs boycotted the elections.

The repeated parliamentary elections in Kosovska Mitrovica held on Sunday went by peacefully, without any incidents, and Serbs boycotted the elections.

The supporters and members of Hasim Taci's Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) celebrated their victory in Kosovska Mitrovica on Sunday evening, even though the Kosovo Central Election Commission (CEC) decided to postpone the announcement of results until Monday.

The Serbs boycotted the elections, like the ones on December 12, 2010, and only ten of them voted in mobile polling stations in areas populated with Serbs.

The voter turnout was 26.76 percent, which is by 11 percent lower compared to December 12 elections, when manipulation and fraud were revealed.

Certain parties and non-governmental organizations uncovered certain election irregularities at these election as well.

Head of the PDK electoral board in Kosovska Mitrovica Rasim Veselji has stated that the elections in that town went by smoothly and without incidents.

Veselji said that PDK won 22.56 percent of votes, whereas the New Kosovo Alliance, Self-Determination Movement and Alliance for the Future of Kosovo won 6.23, 10.7 and 5.3 percent respectively.

Due to irregularities uncovered at the December 12 elections, the voting had already been repeated in the Kosovo municipalities of Srbica, Glogovac, Decane, Malisevo and Lipljan on January 9, 2011.

Unless a serious violation of the election process in Kosovska Mitrovica is revealed, CEC is expected to declare the final results of the elections at the beginning of February, which will be followed by the forming of a new Kosovo government.

The mandator for constituting the new government will be PDK leader and outgoing Kosovo Prime Minister Hasim Taci.
