Kosovo Holds Election amid Calls for Resuming Serbia Talks

Friday, 04 October 2019 05:38 AM

PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo holds an early general election on Sunday amid calls for leaders to resume dialogue with Serbia.

The vote comes after the outgoing prime minister resigned following a request from a Hague-based court to question him over crimes against ethnic Serbs during and after the country's 1998-99 war.

The election will be Kosovo’s seventh since the end of the war, and 1.9 million people are eligible to cast ballots to elect 120 lawmakers.

Kosovo’s 2008 independence from Serbia has been recognized by more than 100 countries but not by Belgrade. European Union-sponsored talks aimed at normalizing ties between the two countries stalled last year over Kosovo's decision to impose a 100% tax on goods from Serbia.
