Local Statements

Today, I shared a letter from EU High Representative/Vice President of the European Commission (HRVP) Josep Borrell with President of Kosovo Vjosa Osmani informing that, following her invitation, the HRVP has decided to deploy an EU Election Observation Mission for the Kosovo local elections of 17 October 2021.

The HR/VP thanked the Kosovo Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Central Election Commission for the dedication and speed with which they have worked to agree and sign an administrative arrangement facilitating the Mission’s deployment.

HR/VP Borrell expressed trust that the final report of the Election Observation Mission will help support the necessary future electoral reform efforts by addressing outstanding EU election observation recommendations. He wished the President a successful conduct of the elections.
