This is a momentous change for Kosovo and I hope that the demonstration effect will embolden other grassroots movements in the region, Andrea Lorenzo Capussela told KoSSev following Sunday’s Kosovo elections and LVV’s preliminary win.
According to the latest data of the Central Election Commission, based on 99.88% of processed votes, Self-Determination takes the lead with 47.93%, followed by PDK with 17.51%, LDK – 13.35%, AAK – 7.47%, Srpska Lista – 4.82%, NISMA – 2.78%.
The former head of the economics unit in the International Civilian Office in Kosovo with a Ph.D. on the cross-border aspects of competition law, Capussela revealed that LVV and Vjosa Osmani are likely to obtain more than 50 seats in the assembly.
“This is a momentous change for Kosovo, which has ditched the élite that misruled it for two decades,” Capussela stated, adding:
“On the other hand, LVV stands for the rule of law and social inclusion. Should they deliver on these priorities, Kosovo would finally begin to develop.”
Capussela, who is currently a guest lecturer at the London School of Economics, also sees a possible impact of these elections on the region.
“I also hope that the demonstration effect will embolden other grassroots movements in the region,” he concluded.
