Kosovo Press Review – March 7, 2013

Ashton has a proposal on the north. Corruption not stopped. PDK doesn’t take Pacolli’s threats seriously.

Pristina

KOHA DITORE
EU High Representative, Catherine Ashton, is going to visit Pristina and Belgrade before March 20 in order to convince both sides on a proposal she has prepared for the north of Kosovo, the daily reports. According to Koha Ditore, her proposal foresees a solution for the north and a mechanism for the Serbian municipalities.

TRIBUNA
Kosovo continues to be one of the most corrupted countries although it has a lot of mechanisms which should fight corruption, Tribuna writes. The Kosovo daily mentions the work made so far by existing task-forces an anti-corruption councils but underlines the level of corruption has just increased.

EXPRESS
“Easy Behgjet” is the main article at the front paper of the daily linked to current developments of the governing coalition between Kosovo Democratic Party and New Kosovo Alliance. PDK doesn’t take AKR’s head, Behgjet Pacolli, threats [for leaving the coalition] seriously, the paper reports.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
