Kosovo citizens go to the polls on Sunday to vote for mayors and members of assemblies in the country's 38 municipalities, hoping a change in power will lead to a change in their daily lives.
The main battle is focused in the capital, Pristina, which is also the only municipality governed by the opposition Vetevendosje Movement.
A grand coalition between the Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, led by Kadri Veseli, the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, led by Ramush Haradinaj and Fatmir Limaj's initiative for Kosovo, NISMA, was agreed on Tuesday night - minutes before the deadline set by the Central Election Commission, CEC, to establish pre-election coalitions expired.
While the candidates of Kosovo's two main parties - the Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, and the Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK - for the post of Prime Minister remain unknown, it has become clear that neither Prime Minister Isa Mustafa nor President Hashim Thaci, will not contend for the post in the early election due on June 11.
Amid continuing uncertainties over the date of national elections in Kosovo, Prime Minister Hashim Thaci has proposed June 8 as a potential option.
He made his proposal on Friday to the President, Atifete Jahjaga, at a meeting held at the presidency building in Pristina.
