Kosovo President calls for competent bodies to investigate claims that members of the election commission suffered an allergic reaction after opening ‘poisoned’ ballots cast in Serbia – and urges restraint in the meantime.

Kosovo President Hashim Thaci has called for an investigation into claims that members of the national election commission, the CEC, suffered an allergic reaction after opening poisoned envelopes containing ballots cast in Serbia. He called for restraint until the probe finishes.

Kosovo held general elections last weekend but some ballots cast outside the country are still being counted.

Thaci on Monday urged the competent bodies “to professionally investigate the entire case and undertake all necessary steps to shed light on suspicions over the poisoning of CEC personnel”.

He spoke after meeting CEC chief Valdete Daka, head prosecutor Aleksander Lumezi and the head of the intelligence agency, Shpend Maxhuni.
