After the elections in northern Kosovo, Serbia’s Vucic is going to Brussels

by Cristian Florescu

President Aleksandar Vučić has expressed his intention to visit Brussels on 2 May to further discuss the normalization of relations with Kosovo. This comes after the recent elections in the Serb-majority municipalities of northern Kosovo, which were unfortunately affected by a historically low turnout.

According to the Central Election Commission (CEC), only 1,567 people cast a ballot out of approximately 45,000 eligible voters in North Mitrovica, Zubin Potok, Zvecan and Leposavic, despite there being a total of 19 polling stations opened.

“The Serbian people have shown that they are looking for a completely different approach from the international community, respect, real dialogue, and not the imposition of solutions,” said Vučić.

“There were 45,095 people on the voter list, and a total of 13 Serbs came out, and of those, two came out by mistake, that’s 0.029%. A significantly smaller number of Albanians also came out. Not a single person voted at several polling stations. In total, 449 Albanians voted, and a good part of them do not live there,” the president said without providing evidence for his claims.

“This showed the enormous unity of the Serbian people. They wanted to show that we are here, but we don’t want to participate in your circus,” said Vučić, who pointed to what he called a political uprising of the Serbian people in Kosovo, who will not tolerate oppression.

Vucic announced that he will head to Brussels on 2 May although he is not optimistic of the outcome.
