Life in Kosovo roadshow on municipal elections rolls on

Posted on

Over 300 people participated in each of the Life in Kosovo debates on local authority elections that have been held so far in nine of Kosovo’s 30 municipalities.


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 Gllogovc, Malisheva, Rahovec, Dragash, Suhareka, Prizren, Gjakova, Decan, Peja, Istog, Klina and Skenderaj.
