PRISTINA - Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga has asked from EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton to send a group of EU observers to monitor the municipal elections that should be held in Kosovo in November.

In a letter to Ashton, Jahjaga said that in her capacity as president of Kosovo, she will take all measures to ensure free and just elections that will result in the election of legitimate representatives of citizens' interests. That is why I invite you to send an EU mission to monitor the course of the elections, Jahjaga said in the letter. I welcome the possibility to host EU observers in Kosovo during the fall, she added.
