During last week’s Life in Kosovo debates on the local authority elections over 500 people participated in each of the shows.
BIRN’s televised programmes consist of over an hour of debate, tackling some of the most crucial issues that each municipality faces while also analysing the political parties’ approach to these issues. Candidates running for the positions of mayor in these municipalities are invited to present their political agendas and arguments on how they will carry out their promises and meet other requirements after the elections.
This weekend, the Life in Kosovo team will be visiting the municipalities of Shterpce, Shtime, Lipjan, Vushtrri and Mitrovica.
The timetable of the debates is below:
November 2, 2007
November 3, 2007
The “Life in Kosovo” shows on municipal elections are a co-production of Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN Kosovo’s public TV station RTK, Advocacy Training and Recourse Centre, ATRC and Institute for Advanced Studies, GAP. These debates were supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the OSCE and the UNDP.Local organizations will contribute to the production of these debates as well.
