Serbia: Kosovo Election, Before and After

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Serbia, Elections, Ethnicity & Race, Governance, History, Human Rights, Indigenous, International Relations, Law, Politics, War & Conflict

Balkan Baby writes [1] about the post-election Kosovo: “Will the parliament be truly representative though, including members not only of the Kosovar and Serbian communities but also the other minorities participating in the election, namely Ashkali, Bosnjak, Gorani, Turkish, Egyptian and Romani? Probably not, leading to the conclusion once more that because of Russian obstructionism, based not in pan-Slavic brotherhood but in personal fears over regions such as Chechnya and Tartarstan, Kosova's only option is to hold it's breath and dive right in and hope that if it gets into trouble the European Union can throw it a life-jacket.”
