UN diplomat posts sturdy aspiration for change in Kosovo

( MENAFN )The top UN representative in Kosovo, Zahir Tanin, on Tuesday, April 13, posted a strong aspiration for change in Kosovo voiced in the Feb. 14 elections.

Tanin, the UN secretary-general's special envoy and leader of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) stated that against the challenges of coronavirus, early lawmaking elections were productively held throughout Kosovo on Feb. 14. The winning party, Vetevendosje, got more than half of all votes cast.

He told the Security Council in a meeting that "Prior to the elections, during less than one year and a half, three separate governments held power in Kosovo. This fact alone helps to illustrate the amount of political turbulence which prevailed, and which made the results of February's vote all the more significant for the population".

An assessment of the demographics of the vote showed a strong aspiration for change throughout Kosovo society. The anticipations voiced were for a shift in the receptiveness of a government to the real hopes and needs of its voters, for better equality of opportunity, accountability, and the rule of law, he added.
