This party is led by Hashim Thaci.

The results based on 99.62 percent of counted votes, "but not including conditional votes and votes sent by mail", also showed that the Srpska Civic Initiative list received 4.2 percent.

The Democratic Alliance of Kosovo won 25.72 percent, followed by the extremist-nationalist Self-Determination with 13.51 percent, Tanjug reported.

The Alliance for the Future of Kosovo led by Ramush Haradinaj won 9.58 percent, while another party that will have seats in the assembly in Priština is the Initiative for Kosovo led by Fatmir Limaj and Jakup Krasnici, with 5.24 percent.

Beta is reporting that Independent Liberal Party leader Slobodan Petrović, whose party ran on the Serbian coalition list, said it would "likely have nine deputies in the Kosovo Assembly" and that its representatives would soon come out with "a joint mission statement on participation in the government of Kosovo."
