BELGRADE, June 09. /ITAR-TASS/. The Democratic Party of Kosovo (DPK), led by Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, has won the early parliamentary elections in the unrecognized Republic of Kosovo.
The republic’s Central Election Commission, which has processed almost 100% of the ballots, reports the party was supported by about 32% of the vote. Thus, Thaci will be able to remain head of the government for the third term.
This year’s elections demonstrated a low turnout of 43%, while at the parliamentary elections in 2007 and 2010 the turnout was 54 and 48% respectively. Political analysts explain it by the public disappointment with the authorities due to Kosovo’s low development progress since the republic became independent in 2008.
The early parliamentary elections were announced on May 7 after the parliament was dismissed as the deputies representing the Serbs refused to vote for organization of Kosovo’s armed forces. At the elections, 30 political parties, including five parties representing the Serbs, competed for 120 seats. Serbia still does not recognize Kosovo as an independent state.
