NISMA, AKR hail Supreme Court’s ruling

Leader of the Social Democratic Initiative (NISMA) Fatmir Limaj has reacted to the decision of the Supreme Court not to accept ballots from Serbia which enables the party to gain representation at the Assembly of Kosovo.

Limaj said the decision shows legal institutions are guardians of democracy in Kosovo. “This decision, just as that of ECAP, protected the integrity of elections undermined by unlawful actions,” Limaj said.

“After the decision in the two instances, irresponsible people will never again be able to snatch and distort the will of the citizens,” he said.

Leader of the New Kosovo Alliance (AKR) Behgjet Pacolli also hailed the court’s ruling. "Justice prevailed. Ballots from Serbia that someone tried to smuggle as votes, were rejected," he wrote on Facebook.
