Thaci is quoted as stating to supporters, “Today we gave freedom, independence and democracy its full meaning.”
Nesrin Kumnova, an election official is further quoted as stating of the outcome of the process, “We are very happy with the flow of these elections… We have no information of any big incidents that would damage the election.”
