Kosovo police reported that windows were broken in the attack and that they found 15 shells of 7.62 mm calibre. Police described the case as a ‘threat to public safety’.
The Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, AAK, condemned the attack claiming that it was a criminal act towards Kosovo institutions and called its main political rival in the town, New Kosovo Alliance, AKR, to distance itself from the incident.
"AAK invites all political parties, even those from the opposition in this town, particularly the AKR branch in Gjakova, to distance themselves quickly from this criminal act against Gjakova municipality, a vital institution of Kosovo’s Republic,” AAK statement reads.
Gjakova has been at the centre of electoral fraud claims following the local elections on Sunday.
The preliminary results from the Central Election Commission show that AAK won 52.8 per cent, while AKR gained 40.7 per cent, ensuring the AAK candidate, Pal Lekaj, was elected mayor without the need for a second round.
The candidate from the coalition AKR and Democratic League of Dardania, LDD, Mimoza Kusari-Lila, has accused the AAK of electoral manipulation.
"Representatives of AAK in the Gjakova municipality have ensured a victory without the runoff for their candidate. In fact, this would not happen unless the polling centre would be well managed," said Kusari-Lila in a press conference last week.She has released a video that shows officials from AAK and the Reformist Party Time, ORA, filling the ballot boxes in Demjan village, ultimately damaging her party’s outcome, she says.
AKR held a protest in Gjakova last week attracting hundreds of protesters.
