Kosovo’s Central Elections Commission (CEC) has been ordered to recount 1,472 out of 2,547 ballot boxes, or 58 percent of all votes cast on 6 October elections. The CEC confirmed that the recount of ballots will start today after complaints of political entities and candidates on alleged irregularities during the initial count of votes.

The CEC spokesperson Valmir Elezi confirmed that the recount of votes will start today at 16:00. “Just to inform you that today (Wednesday, 13 November) at the Count and Results Centre will start recount of polling stations as foreseen with the decision of the Elections Complaints and Appeals Panel,” Elezi said. The ECAP ordered the CEC to recount more than half of all votes after mismatches of the ballots from boxes and forms filled by election commissioners on the election day. Also the ECAP has ordered the CEC to remove around 3,000 votes mailed from Serbia due to irregularities. But the decision to annul votes from Serbia has been appealed by the winners of elections – Vetevendosje to the Supreme Court, who in case the ECAP decision is not overturned will lost at least three seats at the new Parliament. The results will also enable Nisma party headed by Fatmir Limaj to pass the threshold. /GazetaExpress/
