Kosovo Serb’s opposition coalition “Freedom” candidate for Prime Minister on October 6 early elections in Kosovo Nenad Rasic published a campaign video in Albanian, calling on people to vote for the coalition to “jointly renounce a political monster called Serb List,” the Beta news agency reported on Monday.
Serb List is the leading party gathering Kosovo Serbs and holds power in all municipality in the north with a Serb majority. Belgrade openly supports the list as the only organisation local Serbs should vote for.
Rasic made a video in Prizren, in southern Kosovo, predominantly populated by local Albanians.
"With this sincere plea, I call on you to vote for the number 120 since with your vote we will together renounce this political monster called Serb List. I‘m Nenad Rasic, vote for the number 120," he said, according to the Kosovo online website.
The "Freedom" coalition is made up of Rasic‘s Progressive-Democratic Party, New Party headed by Dejan Miric and independent candidates Rada Trajkovic and Slavica Petkovic.
Some former members of the opposition Civil Initiative SDP led by the assassinated opposition politician Oliver Ivanovic, including his closest ally Ksenija Bozovic, joined the Serb List citing the need for the unity of the Kosovo Serbs.
