Democratic League of Kosovo
Scheduled local elections in four northern mainly Serbian districts of Kosovo were thrown into crisis on Wednesday when the Central Election Commission, CEC, failed to certify candidates from the main Serbian party in Kosovo, Srpska Lista.
The candidates did not receive the necessary support from the CEC, meaning their candidacies have been rejected.

"Today I received the invitation letter and the order to appear before the high prosecutor of the Specialist Prosecutor's Office in The Hague, on March 12, 2019," Kuci wrote in a statement sent to local media on Thursday.
He added that he will "fulfil the obligation and will respond to this order".
The parliamentary group of the biggest Kosovo opposition party, the Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK on Tuesday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj and his deputy, Fatmir Limaj, after a statement from European Commissioner Johannes Hahn that visa liberalisation with the EU is more likely to come by 2020 than the hoped-for end of 2018.
A roundtable organised on Wednesday in Kosovo by BIRN Kosovo's show "Jeta ne Kosove" heard local politicians warn that a territorial swap between Serbia and Kosovo could worsen regional instability.
