COVID-19 forces parties to avoid conventional campaigns

The election campaign for the October local elections starts today.

The law on local elections provides that the campaign lasts one month, but because of the grave situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the main political parties have pledged to shorten their campaigns. The Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK), Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), and Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (AAK) have said they will focus on digital instead of conventional campaigns. Meanwhile, the Vetevendosje Movement, the ruling party, has not commented on the issue yet.
