The four heads of municipal election commissions tendered their irrevocable resignations this morning, Slobodan Dimitrijevic, now former president of the MEC for North Mitrovica, confirmed for KoSSev. At this moment, employees of the municipality of North Mitrovica are also submitting their resignations in large numbers.

According to Dimitrijevic, the reason why the president of the MEC resigned was the announcement that extraordinary elections would be called in four municipalities in the north after political representatives of the Kosovo Serb community resigned.

„Given the political situation, we are not ready to work on that technical issue at the moment, which is the implementation of an election process in the North. We do not have an agreement with the citizens as to whether they are ready for such a thing,“ Dimitrijevic told KoSSev.

He also stated that the four presidents of the municipal election commissions would not return to work, noting that „Pristina may have a solution“ and that someone may „accept those posts“.

„Given that in order to become chairman, a competition must be announced, and the conditions of the competition must be met, and so on, that would probably take a very long time,“ said Slobodan Dimitrijevic.

At the same time, a large number of employees are currently gathered in front of the municipal building, in order to tender their resignations.

The latest license plate-related crisis is underway in Kosovo, which resulted in Kosovo Serbs withdrawing from Kosovan institutions. Belgrade and Pristina accuse each other of causing the new situation. International representatives call for an immediate de-escalation of tensions, urging the government in Pristina to postpone the deadline for reregistration for the next 10 months, and for the Serbs to return to Kosovo institutions.

Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti also called on Kosovo Serbs to return to Kosovo’s institutions on several occasions. He reiterated the same message today at a session of the Kosovo government.

„Those who called on the withdrawal from Kosovo’s institutions are those who stand in the way of legality and constitutionality, the fight against crime and corruption,“ Kurti said.
