October 1 (SeeNews) - The power utilityof the U.N.-run Serbian province of Kosovo, KEK, said on Monday it has named Remzi Shahini the utility’s new managing director, a position which had remained vacant for almost two months.
“KEK’s board approved the decision at its last meeting held on September 26,” KEK said in a statement.
Shahini has served as KEK’s operating director. He will replace Pranvera Dobruna, the utility's first ever ethnic Albanian managing director since 1999 when the U.N. took control of the southern Serbian province. Dobruna was appointed managing director last October as part of a transission plan for KEK, under which the power utility should be managed by local experts until the international presence withdraws. In late June Dobruna was dismissed after a negative review of KEK’s financial report for the first half of the year.
Legally still part of Serbia, Kosovo has been under U.N. administration since 1999 following NATO bombings that expelled Serb forces to end what Western powers said was repression of civilians in fighting an ethnic Albanian rebel insurgency. Ethnic Albanians who outnumber Serbs and other nationalities in the province by nine to one, are seeking independence, while Belgrade says Kosovo is an indivisible part of Serbia.
Kosovo’s future status is expected to be determined later this year.
