Kosovo PM’s party leads landmark election

Pristina – Prime Minister Hashim Thaci’s ruling party led Kosovo’s weekend elections but will need to find allies from among other parties to form a new government, the fledgling nation’s electoral commission reported Monday, according to CNN. With all but 1 percent of districts reporting, Thaci’s Democratic Party of Kosovo won 33.5 percent of Sunday’s vote in a field of 29 parties, according to Kosovo’s Central Election Commission. Its leading rival, the Democratic League of Kosovo, won 23.6 percent, while the Self-Determination Movement – which favors a union with neighboring Albania – ran third with 12.2 percent, the commission reported.
