Govt: Belgrade wants to stop decentralisation by pressuring K-Serbs

Zëri reports on the front page that according to Kosovo Government officials, obstacles from Belgrade have slowed down the Kosovo Government’s steps in achieving sufficient progress in implementing pilot projects for decentralisation. Government spokesman Dauti is quoted as saying that the main delay is connected to the list of political representatives in the new pilot municipalities, namely in Gracanica.

‘The situation on the ground is changing as far as the problems with preparing the lists are concerned. The Serb side has other demands and has changed its position. Belgrade is applying pressure, and has engaged people to stop the process,’ Dauti added.
