Kosovars vote on Sunday in a snap parliamentary election, hoping to elect a government that can improve the Balkan state’s impoverished economy and make progress in joining the EU, Balkaneu reported. About 1.9 million Kosovars, nearly half a million of whom live abroad, are registered to vote in the third election since Kosovo declared independence in 2008. The new government will have to tackle unemployment running at 30% and improve relations with its neighbors, especially Serbia, a pre-condition for both countries to move forward in the European Union accession process.
