According to the NGO "Democracy in Action", which monitors elections, the KDP has obtained 35% of the vote against 23% for the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), founded by the charismatic President Ibrahim Rugova, who died in 2006.
The election was marked by a low turnout and a boycott by the Serb minority. He spoke while Serbs and the Kosovar Albanian negotiating, with little or no hope of success, the final status of Kosovo, Serbian province, Albanian more than 90%, and that the United Nations administers after the conflict between Serb forces and separatist guerrillas in 1998-99.
Discussions should be completed on December 10 and the Kosovars have announced that in the event of failure they proclameraient unilateral independence.
