Life in Kosovo debates of elections

Posted on

Tonight in Life in Kosovo, representatives of political parties, the Central Election Commission (CEC) and the
NGO Democracy in Action will discuss how the election process was organised on December 12.

Questions to be considered include: Who is responsible for the organisation and running of elections? What kinds of responsibility do those staffing Kosovo’s 2280 polling stations have? Why was appropriate equipment not provided?

What kind of legitimacy will the institutions to be created after these elections have? What lessons can be learned? Will Kosovo have fresh elections next year?

In order to discuss these and other issues relating to the December 12 elections, Jeta Xharra will be joined in the studio by:

Jakup Krasniqi, acting President of Kosovo and PDK secretary;
Valdete Daka, Head of the CEC;
Driton Selmanaj, Democracy in Action;
Ismet Beqiri, LDK secretary;
Burim Ramadani, AAK secretary;
Glauk Konjufca, member of Vetevendosje.

In addition, an interview by Jeta Xharra will be broadcast, in which two leaders from the CEC, Valdete Daka and Xhemajl Pecani, claim that the responsibility for the irregularities and violations does not lie with the CEC alone.

During the show, BIRN will also broadcast a report from journalist Edona Musa, in which she shows how the government has spent money set aside for children with disabilities.
