Prishtina [Pristina], 22 May: The minister of public service [MPS], Melihate Termkolli, said at today's meeting of the Working Group that Standard I is the most fulfilled Standard, indicating thus that Kosova [Kosovo] has democratic institutions.

At the meeting of the Working Group on Standard I - Functioning of Democratic Institutions - Termkolli said that Kosova has marked a significant progress in the past 30 days in many areas of this Standard.

"We can say that we are on the right track as government and as ministry to fulfil the Standards and we expect a positive evaluation from the SRSG [Special Representative of the Secretary General] at the UNSC session in June," she added.

Termkolli stressed that there are some Standards areas which take more to be implemented, "but what is most important, the institutions are willing and committed to fulfil them".
