“The United States Embassy congratulates Kosovo on the successful completion of the first round of municipal elections. We commend the Central Election Commission, the Polling Commissioners, the OSCE and all of the monitoring and observation teams for their hard work. While we are concerned by some reports of outdated voter registries, double-voting and other sporadic irregularities, we hope some of these issues can be addressed before the next round of municipal voting in November.” (US Embassy Kosovo)
