New Social Initiative (NSI)

Local Elections in 10 Serb majority municipalities in Kosovo

What has been the voter turnout in the Serb majority municipalities in Kosovo, which have been the most voted parties, and what was the male-to-female ratio of votes and municipal assembly members? To answer these questions, the New Social Initiative uses Keshif to visualize and explore local election data from 2017 and 2013 in the following ten municipalities: North Kosovska Mitrovica, Zubin Potok, Leposavić, Zvečan, Štrpce, Klokot, Gracanica, Novo Brdo, Ranilug and Partesh.

All Serb majority municipalities have voted to elect the Srpska lista in the 2017 municipality elections in Kosovo. In addition, the number of votes to Srpska lista has increased relative to 2013 results in all of the municipalities.


Overall, male candidates got 6 time more votes than female candidates in all ten Serb majority municipalities. However, the gender quota has helped women get one third of the seats in municipality assemblies. A male member represents 500 votes in average, while a woman member represents 155 votes.


In northern municipalities there was a general increase in voter turnout from 2013, while in the southern municipalities there was a slight drop in the turnout.
