Kosova Sot carries an editorial on the front page saying that Serbs have launched a new political offensive asking for no less than 80 municipalities in Kosovo.
The editorial says that they are also using the apathy of Kosovo institutions and Albanians working there who have become myopic from power.
The new Belgrade stance says that the Serbian minority would support only a decentralization that implies creation of an enormous number of municipalities, and they want to add cadastral zones to the first pilot projects.
If the Serbian model was to be followed there would be a real mess in administering local territories. Their crazy idea, as the editorial calls it, aims at strengthening enclaves, and at the same time legalizing a linking bridge with Serbia.
Although the SRSG has signed the Administrative Direction, the process has again been hindered. Serbian boycott is one of the obstacles. Their absence makes implementation of these projects in their areas senseless.
However, the editorial concludes that with or without Serbs the Government needs to go ahead with decentralization in order for the international community to see their will to keep promises and be convinced about Serbian destructiveness and the consequences of Belgrade’s policy.
