The head of the Central Election Commission, Kreshnik Radoniqi, has announced that the process for dismissing the mayors in the northern municipalities has not passed.

Radoniqi has announced that in Leposaviq 124 citizens voted out of 13.674 citizens with the right to vote or 0.91 percent, in Zubin-Potok 18 voters out of 6.877 citizens with the right to vote, in Zveçan no one voted out of 7.209 citizens and in Mitrovica The North received a total of 111 votes out of 18.796 votes or 0.59 percent.

He said that despite the challenges, the CEC has taken all the necessary steps to enable citizens to realize their democratic and legal rights.

"Relying on the voter turnout data in this process, we inform you that the majority of registered voters did not vote as required by Article 72 of the Law on Local Self-Government in the Republic of Kosovo, so the necessary 50% was not reached, therefore we find that the citizens' initiative to remove the mayors of Leposaviq, Zubin Potok, Zveçan and North Mitrovica municipalities has failed. The Central Election Commission, despite the challenges, has been maximally committed and has taken all the necessary steps to organize the voting process in these municipalities, proving its great commitment to enable the citizens to realize their democratic and legal right" , Radoniqi stated in a press conference.

The head of the EULEX Mission in Kosovo, Giovanni Barbano, has briefly said that security was provided during the voting process in the four northern municipalities.
