CEC postpones appeals

CEC postpones appeals
The Central Election Commission, now remained with only four members, postponed the meeting for the first complaint with three other days.

The Socialist Movement for Integration is filing a complaint for the Kukes District result, which was to be reviewed this Friday. The political force led by Ilir Meta demands a recount and evaluation of ballots for 15 boxes in Tropoja, Kukes, and where the result that favors the Democratic Party has a very close difference.

The Socialist Movement for Integration claims that 150 votes have been removed from the left coalition. If true, that could give the fourth Kukes mandate to the left coalition.

There is another complaint made for the Shkoder District. Different from Kukes, it is the Republican Party which says that their mandates were taken by the Democratic Party.

Another mandate is being discussed in Lezhe. The Socialist Party opposes the CEC decision for this district that went from the left to the right coalition.

The complaint of the Socialist Party, which has not been submitted to the Central Election Commission yet, might include other voting centers of Lezhe, where they don’t exclude demanding the invalidity of the elections.

There could be 40 complaints in total at the Central Election Commission, and one of them is that of the independent candidate, Dritan Prifti, who wants a ballot recount in Fier. There are complaints from the LZHK in some areas, while the Party of Retired People and the Christian-Democratic Popular Alliance have had no preferences for the districts. They have asked the elections to be considered invalid throughout the country.

All complaints, because the Central Election Commission doesn’t have the necessary numbers for the votes, will go to the Electoral College.
Thaci: Man of war and peace

Thaci: Man of war and peace
“WHEN Hashim Thaci directed a bloody guerrilla war from the mountains of this poor and rugged country, he was so adept at evading capture that fellow fighters called him the Snake. Hashim Thaci, the 45-year-old Prime Minister of Kosovo aspires to statemanship”

This is how the prestigious American newspaper New York Times makes a description of the 45-year-old Prime Minister of Kosovo in an article dedicated to him.

“In June he agreed to put in place a landmark power-sharing agreement with Serbia that is being hailed in Europe and the United States as a triumph of peace and reconciliation in the region after the Balkan wars of the 1990s, in which about 120,000 people died, more than 10,000 of them in Kosovo.”

“Mr. Thaci is being hailed in Washington and Brussels as the Gerry Adams of the Balkans, his country on the road toward Europe, his name even invoked, however improbably, as a possible Nobel Peace Prize candidate”, the article continues.

The United States prestigious newspaper refers to the most important moments of Thaci’s life, such as the childhood, the resistance against the Serbs and his decision to join the KLA.

“An athletic and lanky man with a vise-grip handshake, Mr. Thaci, the seventh of nine children, comes from a family of farmers in the Drenica region of Kosovo, the heartland of Albanian resistance to the Serbs.”

“He later went underground to join the Kosovo Liberation Army. While some, like Kosovo’s first president, Ibrahim Rugova, favored Gandhian passive resistance, Mr. Thaci was a forceful advocate of armed struggle. “The Serbian regime would not be pacified by smiles and hugs,” he said, according to NYT.

“At the NATO-sponsored peace talks in Rambouillet, France, early in 1999, Mr. Thaci made a strong impression on Madeleine K. Albright, the United States secretary of state. He proved to be a pragmatist, signing a compromise deal that fell short of guaranteeing Kosovo’s independence. The talks eventually collapsed when Belgrade refused to withdraw all of its military forces, prompting NATO’s bombing campaign”, the article continues

“Yet the past keeps coming back to haunt him. In 2010, a Council of Europe report accused Mr. Thaci of having led a “mafialike” group that smuggled weapons, heroin and human organs during the war and its aftermath. Mr. Thaci has rejected those accusations as well, and the Kosovo government at the time called them “despicable.” In August 2011, the European Union set up a special task force to investigate the veracity of organ-trafficking claims, including whether or not Mr. Thaci was involved. It has not yet delivered its findings”, says the prestigious NYT.

According to the article, “when Thaci was asked about the accusations, including that Kosovar Albanians kidnapped Serbs during the war and harvested their kidneys at a secret “yellow house” in Albania, Mr. Thaci transformed his grin into a grimace.

“Something like that never happened; we have nothing to hide,” he said. “The earlier the issue is clear, the better it is for Kosovo. It is really a very heavy burden for us, and we believe in truth and justice,” he said.

The article says that Mr.Thaci said his wartime experience had taught him to keep his patience during six months of 12-hour-a-day talks this year when he faced his former foe, Prime Minister Ivica Dacic of Serbia. Mr. Dacic was the wartime spokesman of the former Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic, whose forces had tried, without success, to hunt down and kill Mr. Thaci.

“It wasn’t easy to sit opposite one another at the table, two former sworn enemies,” Mr. Thaci said for NYT, recalling his first awkward handshake with Mr. Dacic. But he said pragmatism had ultimately prevailed. Being celebrated at home as a former soldier also helped.

“Although he has been widely credited with shepherding Kosovo toward independence — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has called him the “George Washington of Kosovo” — his government has also faced repeated accusations of rampant corruption. In May, he suffered another blow when a European Union court here ordered the arrest of seven former K.L.A. commanders accused of war crimes, including two former close aides”, says the article of NYT.

Mr. Thaci insists that he and his fellow soldiers were freedom fighters. He quoted the lyrics of a favorite Sting song he said he had listened to as a young guerrilla leader.

“Duhet më shumë se uniforma për të krijuar një burrë, është më shumë se liçensa për armën. Perballuni me armiqtë, shmangini kur mundeni. Një zotëri do të ecë, nuk do t’ia mbathë kurrë”.

“Takes more than combat gear to make a man. Takes more than a license for a gun. Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can. A gentleman will walk but never run”, the NYT article concludes.
From ERT Now EDT - Greek Public Television Back on Air

By Hellas Frappe on 11.7.13

The Greek Public Television channel (EDT) went back on air, late on July 10, one month after the state broadcaster was shut down. A backdrop reading Greek Public Television and featuring a globe and coloured waves was being broadcast on the main digital frequencies formerly occupied by ERT. Later, the broadcaster screened an old Greek movie.

Deputy Minister for Public Radio and Television Pantelis Kapsis said this was a transitional stage, until new staff is hired for a new public television service to start running in the autumn. He added that the signal is being broadcast from a studio, and that initially the programme will include feature films and documentaries, while the latest news headlines will be viewed in a ticker at the bottom of the television screen.

He also said job openings for staff would be posted soon in order for the regular programme to start. "There will be an open call to journalists," Kapsis said. In announcement on July 9, former ERT employees -who have taken over the station's headquarters- condemned every "attempt to illegally transmit anything outside ERT's main or regional facilities."
    "The government will not stay hostage to the unionists who at this point remain at the Aghia Paraskevi premises," Kapsis told private television station Mega, referring to the ERT headquarters.
The minister expressed his disappointment at the former employees' occupation of the facilities, as he said almost all their demands have been met.
     "We have essentially resolved all issues raised, all of them. I know there is disagreement over two-month contracts, but that cannot be resolved. But all the rest was resolved," Kapsis said, naming the compensation for layoffs, incentives for those wishing to go on early retirement, bonuses for laid-off staff and the hiring of 2,000 as staff from the former ERT to the transitional agency."
Responding to charges about the government's emitting a signal illegally, he said, "Is the public pirating itself? Whom does public television belong to? Is it a responsibility of the government and the state, or not? Employees have every right to react and I fully respect their union struggles, but that's one thing; it's another to occupy ERT's assets and forbid the regular transmission from the public agency."

The three channels of former ERT (ET1, NET and ET3) started broadcasting late on Wednesday night with a Greek comedy at 9:00 a.m., a film bought in the open market. The program continued with documentaries, breaking overnight and restarting Thursday morning with a children's show.

The program of the transitional channel called Greek Public Television (DT) began transmitting its logo on the shutdown ERT public broadcaster frequencies on Wednesday morning.

Serbs from northern Kosovo won't vote in elections

ZVEČAN -- Zvečan Mayor Dragiša Milović says that Serbs in the north of of Kosovo will not take part in the local elections organized by Priština on November 3.
Milović spoke at the celebration of the municipal day to state that Serbs want to stay in their country and that this was the reason they recently constituted the Assembly of the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija.
"We did not do this out of spite and unconstitutionally, but to remain in the framework of the Constitution and the state Serbia," the mayor said.

He added that Belgrade and the international community can and must offer better and more just solutions for all who live in Kosovo and Metohija.

Milović also said that the Albanians are implementing the Brussels agreement selectively and are using it as "a buffet" - applying only what suits them.

Milović also thanked the Government Office for Kosovo and Metohija for the reconstruction of facilities in the municipality.

The mayor announced that work will soon start to build a regional water supply for northern Kosovska Mitrovica, Zvečan and Zubin Potok, thereby resolving "one of the burning problems in the region."

Albania-Kosovo military agreement raises concerns in Serbia

As Tirana and Pristina sign a status of forces agreement, Belgrade expresses concern for the safety of Kosovo Serbs.
By Linda Karadaku and Biljana Pekusic for Southeast European Times in Pristina and Belgrade -- 11/07/13

Albania and Kosovo have downplayed Serbian concerns about the status of forces agreement between Tirana and Pristina. [AFP]
The signing of a status of forces agreement between Kosovo and Albania promises to bolster co-operation between the two countries, but has raised security concerns in neighbouring Serbia.

The Kosovo-Albania agreement, signed July 1st, regulates relations between the countries based on NATO standards, the entry and exit procedures of military equipment and personnel into each state, and the temporary deployment and status of civilian personnel.

While neither Kosovo nor Albania have sent equipment or personnel to one another aside from Albanian officers who served in the KFOR mission, the agreement creates a legal framework that would allow such movement.

Both Pristina and Tirana say the agreement does not threaten any other nation, but Serbia Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic called it a "very serious problem," and said Belgrade would consult with the EU and other officials.

With Serb populations in northern Kosovo concerned that the implementation of the Brussels agreement that was signed in April will reduce their security, Vucic added that NATO has guaranteed that the Kosovo Security Force will not send personnel to that area.

Milovan Drecun, chairman of the Serbian parliament Committee on Kosovo, gave a sharper assessment.

"This agreement between Kosovo and Albania indicates large Albanian claims and may threaten the safety of the Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohia," Drecun told SETimes.

Military analyst and author Miroslav Lazanski said the agreement is a provocation addressed at Serbia.

"The agreement entitles the Albanian armed forces to be stationed in Kosovo, which is not at all in the spirit of easing tensions in this part of the region," Lazanski told SETimes.

But the Kosovo Security Force and the Albanian Ministry of Defense said no nation should feel threatened by the agreement.

"The agreement ... does not represent any threat at all for Serbia or any other neighbour of Kosovo. This agreement is a result of the good and continuous co-operation between the two ministries. We will for sure sign other agreements in turn with the neighbouring and friendly countries, which will open new possibilities for intensive and overall co-operation between the states of the region, and furthermore, contribute to the strengthening of peace and overall security," Ibrahim Shala, spokesperson for the Kosovo Security Force, told SETimes.

Lorisa Ylli, a spokesperson for the Albanian Ministry of Defense, told SETimes that NATO member countries and those that aspire to join the Alliance, including Kosovo and Serbia, "are clear about the obligations and the mutual respect deriving from the Washington Treaty," NATO's founding document.

"This agreement does not represent a threat for any other country and even less for Serbia, which is a NATO partner country, with the status of Partnership for Peace member. This agreement between the two sovereign states increases the co-operation between our two countries, countries that have been a model regarding the spirit of stabilisation and security they transmit in the region," Ylli said.

Ramadan Qehaja, head of the Kosovo Centre for Security Studies, agrees.

"It is the right of any sovereign state to sign bilateral agreements," Qehaja told SETimes.

SP: Alarming financial situation

SP: Alarming financial situation Ilir Beqja, member of the working group that will plan the program of the new government, released a press statement for the media, with a gray background reading “office of newly elected Prime Minister”.

By describing the financial situation as very difficult, Beqja declared that for the first five months of the year, Customs and Tax Offices have collected 150 million USD less than the program.

“Experts predict that this could reach 400 million USD by the end of the year. We cannot leave without mentioning another important figure. Only in the first six months of the year the outgoing government has exhausted 90% of the budget deficit”, Beqja declared.

On behalf of the new majority, Mr.Beqja listed five requests to the incumbent Ministry of Finances.

“We ask the Minister of Finances, since he is the Minister with the moral and legal responsibility to publish the fiscal indicators according to the consolidated budget for the first six months of the year, to exert his legal duty for the administration and collection of the tax and customs obligations. They must interrupt any negotiation for agreements and projects with funds that increase Albania’s foreign debt. They must guarantee that from 12 to 30 July, during which there will be an upgrade of the automatic treasury system, they must secure the payment of social assistance, the payment of disabled people, retirement pensions and public administration wages”, Beqja declared.

This ceremony was also boycotted by the Parliament Speaker, Jozefina Topalli. Present in the ceremony was the Albanian President, Bujar Nishani; the next Prime Minister, Edi Rama, and representatives from the entire political spectrum, civil society and the media.

The US Ambassador, Alexander Arvizu, spoke about the June 23rd elections in Albania, saying that they were significant for the modern political history of our country, with the Albanians making it clear that the future of Albania is the European Integration.

"Only two weeks ago, dozens of thousands of Albanians voted for their next leader. This was a defining choice, the most significant of the modern political history of Albania. The clear message of the Albanian people was simple: they are ready to take responsibility for the future leading of their country, and they will decide. Their conviction is clear. The future of Albania is as an integral part of Europe, and this will take place very soon through comprehension, not division. Any politician or party that ignores this fact, puts himself into danger", Arvizu declared.

"It will be a honor for me to follow personally the gathering of the first Parliament in September", Arvizu declared.

Serbia for Dayton, RS against recognition of Kosovo

BANJA LUKA -- Serbia remains firmly committed to the position that the Dayton Peace Agreement is a basis for the state architecture of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Bosnia's Serb entity, the Serb Republic (RS), meanwhile, "is resolved to continue preventing Sarajevo from recognizing the unilaterally declared independence of Kosovo," Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić and RS President Milorad Dodik underscored on Wednesday.

Dačić and Dodik talked in Banja Luka on Wednesday before a joint sitting of the Serbian and RS governments.

Dačić told a news conference following the meeting that the Dayton Agreement was reached thanks to a great diplomatic initiative of Serbia's leadership at that time and brought about peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

“Our stand is unchangeable. We will never impose pressure on RS and require from it to change its position on the equality of peoples and entities in Bosnia-Herzegovina,” said Dačić, who informed Dodik about details concerning the negotiating process between Belgrade and Priština.

For Serbia, the dialogue remains status-neutral, and no one from the EU has brought that into question, the Serbian prime minister said.

During the dialogue in Brussels, Bosnia has never been mentioned as a topic that should be addressed, Dačić said.

Dodik said that RS offers unwavering support to Serbia's state policy when it comes to the issue of Kosovo, which means, among other things, that Banja Luka will never recognize Kosovo's independence.

“As regards Kosovo's independence, RS sticks to the position of non-recognition, and we will not grant our consent for that in Bosnia. The integrity and sovereignty of Serbia has been challenged by that unilateral declaration,” Dodik said, adding that RS could not recognize the self-declared independence of Kosovo, “taking into account the internal constitution of Bosnia”.

Dodik said that Dačić informed him about the details in relation to Serbia's EU integration process, which RS fully supports.

“We expect that the negotiating process will begin, and that Serbia will successfully close all chapters and become an EU member state,” Dodik said.

The RS president noted that Banja Luka has nothing against Serbia holding joint sittings with the Federation of Bosnia or the Council of Ministers, as that is a part of the policy aimed at normalizing relations in the region.

Dačić and Dodik said that joint sittings of the two governments are a good frame for improving relations between Serbia and RS even further, adding that they should be held twice a year.

DSS Asks If Serbian Government And NATO Support Albania-Kosovo Agreement


BELGRADE – The opposition Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS) asked on Tuesday the government and the Serbian Defence Ministry what they will do after the signing of an agreement on military cooperation between Albania and interim institutions in Kosovo-Metohija, and whether on the occasion the government has requested an explanation from the NATO Alliance, which includes Albania among its members.

Stressing that the agreement jeopardizes Serbia’s territorial integrity given that it includes provisions which are dangerous for the security of citizens and the country, and also that Kosovo does not have its armed forces, DSS MP Jovan Palalic said that the behavior of the NATO Alliance is particularly worrying, and asked whether such an agreement could be signed without its knowledge.

In the part of the session when MPs can ask for information from the competent persons, he said that the agreement makes it possible for the Albanian Armed Forces to be present in Kosovo-Metohija, and asked whether this means that that they will be able to stay in north Kosovo and finish the job that the Kosovo forces cannot.

“What kind of message is NATO sending to Serbia when it allows this,” Palalic asked, and called on the government to pose a question to the military alliance whether it supports such an agreement and whether it respects Serbia’s military neutrality.

Palalic asked the government whether Serbia’s scope of participation in the Partnership for Peace will be questioned due to such behavior of the military alliance.

PM: Some progress, but more talks needed

BRUSSELS -- Ivica Dačić said after the 13th round of dialogue with Hashim Thaci in Brussels on Monday that some progress was made, but many open issues remain.


Ivica Dačić said after the 13th round of dialogue with Hashim Thaci in Brussels on Monday that some progress was made, but many open issues remain.

"We talked about many issues related to the implementation of the Brussels agreement (between Belgrade and Priština)," Dačić told reporters after five hours of talks with Thaci at the office of EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

The prime minister explained that the talks focused on local elections in Kosovo, the amnesty bill, the judicial network, electricity, telecommunications and everything else the experts had failed to agree on.

"Thaci said the amnesty bill will be passed by the end of next week," said Dačić.

The prime minister warned that Priština is constantly trying to use the status-neutral dialogue to impose solutions which confirm Kosovo's statehood.

"We must prevent them from solving status issues through the demand for the use of Kosovo IDs and citizenship," Dačić said, adding this is very important for the participation of Serbs in the local elections this fall, whose organization was also discussed.

When it comes to telecommunications and electricity, Dačić said some difficult issues like Lake Gazivode will be discussed during the EU high representative's visit to Belgrade and Priština this week.

"Some progress was made, but we will discuss several open issues with Ashton in Belgrade tomorrow," Dačić said, adding he and Thaci will meet again in Brussels on July 24.

He explained that in addition to Lake Gazivode, there is dispute over the Valac substation and the international calling code for Kosovo.

The village is located near the town of Kuršumlija, and near the administrative line between Kosovo and central Serbia.

"A group of Albanians attacked, with automatic weapons, a Gendarmerie patrol, on the territory of Serbia, in the region of the Kuršumlija village of Borovac. There were no consequences for the members of the Gendarmerie, while information of the Kosovo Police Service shows that six persons of Albanian nationality were injured," said Gendarmerie commander Bratislav Dikić.

In a statement for Tanjug, Dikić specified that the police officers came under fire from two directions at around 19:00 CET on Sunday, and that "multiple persons" carried out the attack. According to this, the Gendarmes "responded adequately" and were not harmed.

Dikić further said that a tractor loaded with timber was found at the scene, along with two chainsaws and items of personal clothing, and that EULEX and KFOR liaison officers were informed about the incident.

Last night, the commander also said that the Gendarmes were "undertaking measures and activities to ensure safety of the citizens in the area," and that they had been looking for the attackers who were wounded. If found, he said, they would receive medical treatment.

Meanwhile, the Kosovo police, KPS, confirmed that the incident took place but offered no other details, while the Albanian language daily Express, published in Priština, said that four persons were hospitalized.

Unofficial information and statements from the locals said that an armed group of Albanians crossed the administrative boundary and attempted to illegally cut trees. They then attacked the Gendarmerie patrol that was nearby.

Local official in Merdare Časlav Milošević told Beta the shooting lasted for half an hour, and added:

"There was shooting like there was a war. From multiple kinds of weapons. Beside individual shots, there were also bursts of fire. The local villagers are very upset and frightened."

Reports also said that this was "the third armed incident in the village in the past ten days."

Last night, journalists were not allowed access to Borovac for safety reasons.

Berisha: Vendimi për shtetësinë ka tërbuar albanofobët, të cilët i tmerron bashkimi i shqiptarëve

Berisha: The decision has enraged albanophobia nationality, who is horrified by the merger of Albanians

The outgoing Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, seems already made practice answering questions for his fans on Facebook. Responding to one of them, he explained the decision to grant Albanian citizenship. He said that this decision has enraged Albanian albanophobia (refers to the new majority) and non-Albanians, who, according to Berisha, the Albanian union is horrified.

"The Albanian government's decision to grant or acquisition of it and all the decisions are fully constitutional government except for those who makes funny revenge, even with far away leads up to this and believe that Bangladesh are not selected for a 4-year term, as the Constitution stipulates Albania, but four years and three months? This is their job. The decision for issuing and acquiring citizenship is highly rated by Albanians everywhere in the world, but obviously he has met with fury by albanophobia not really Albanians and Albanians. The latter, of denatured by any national feeling, have to dread every step that brings the Albanians together with each other ", said Berisha.

According to him, it is not the first time that albanophobia Albanians and non-Albanians have launched attacks against Albanians.

"They are in any case ready to make common cause with Albanian albanophobia not support the latter. So in the case of National Road Albanian albanophobia not used all national and international mechanisms that control to not allow its construction, which according to them would damage the harbors deep region. In support of stateless ethnic Albanians do everything to block the road and declared it as a way of nowhere. But the road was built, and albanophobia albanophobia have no future. The recent decision of the Albanian Government for the issuance or acquisition of citizenship is constitutional as is saci Albanian Albanian Constitution, which clearly defines the obligations of the Albanian Albanians anywhere in the world. However albanophobia Constitution recognizes only one, it phobia and hatred towards Albanians and between them as to remind me a Latin proverb that says that grazes wild animals is more fierce than themselves most ferocious, most Albanians are stateless zealots are overwhelmed " , said Berisha.

He said that the decision for recognition of statehood is delayed, as it had done all the countries of the region.

"The recent decision of the Albanian Government for the issuance or acquisition of citizenship is unfortunately too late. A decision of this kind to minorities and their compatriots have taken years ago without exception all countries in the region and beyond as Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, etc.. Even Greece, and perhaps elsewhere, pays pensions to elderly Albanian descent. However, in these countries there is, or has little fobira people with their own nation like us. Therefore, there is no protest, otherwise they unanimously supported at home and abroad such decisions, " said Berisha.

Creation of Kosovo parliament "form of self-organizing"

BELGRADE -- Milovan Drecun has said that "initiatives to form certain Serb institutions in Kosovo, like the provisional assembly of Kosovo, were a form of self-organizing."
That is in line with the government policy, said this SNS MP and chairman of the Parliament Committee on Kosovo and Metohija.
"Serbia's official policy is that local elections should be held on November 3 and that the Serbs should vote and later form the association of Serb municipalities," he told reporters at the parliament building in Belgrade.

He also commented on the fact the Kosovo assembly in Priština did not adopt the amnesty law on Thursday by saying that failure to adopt the law would undermine the implementation of the Brussels agreement "and allow abuses by Priština."

"I think Washington and Brussels will do their part of the work now and we will have a law on amnesty soon," Drecun stated.

The Brussels agreement has become the integral part of Serbia's policy regarding Kosovo and it has to be implemented in its entirety, he was quoted as saying by Tanjug.
