KOSOVO POLLS A TEST FOR EU ENTRY

0

PRISTINA: Kosovo voted on Sunday in snap polls seen as a key test for the country’s European Union (EU) ambitions and for Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, an ex-guerilla chief who has dominated politics since independence six years ago. Polling stations opened at 7.00 am local time (5:00 am Manila Time) throughout Kosovo, with all eyes on the turnout from the Serb minority in the north, voting for the first time since Kosovo broke away from Serbia. A high turnout from the 120,000-strong Serb community would be seen as a boost to Thaci’s dream of joining the 28-nation EU, after last year’s historic agreement on improving Kosovo’s ties with Belgrade.
