Non-inclusion of four municipalities in tariff plan ,unacceptable

Naim Qelaj, Kosovo Ombudsperson, commented on the Energy Regulatory Office’s proposal on the increase of energy tariffs which has not included the four municipalities in the north of Kosovo.

Qelaj said such a move is “unacceptable”.

“While we are waiting for the decision on future developments, the idea to differentiate prices amongst different territories where the citizens of the Republic of Kosovo live is unacceptable for us, as was the case of non-payment of electricity in the four northern municipalities of Kosovo and billing the citizens of the rest of the territory of Kosovo for the consumed energy,” Qelaj is quoted by Kosovapress.

He said that if indeed such a decision is taken, the institution of the Ombudsperson will take measures to oppose it.
