Pristina's plan: Elections, riots, police incursion?

This creates the danger of protests and violence, writes Politika.
Namely, if the Serb List, voted for by some 90 percent of Serbs in the last elections, decides to boycott the May elections, according to the Belgrade daily, that could lead to police intervention in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, "something that Pristina would then accuse local Serbs and Belgrade for."
The police intervention in the north would then be used by Pristina to seize the Trepca mining complex, Politika continued, "as well as all administrative crossings, and apply on the ground everything that Kosovo special (police) had been training for in North Macedonia in the last weeks."
The newspaper recalls that presidents of the four municipalities in the north resigned in November after the government in Pristina introduced a 100 percent tax on Serbian products.
