Neziri said that the EU ambassador has indicated at the nationalistic rhetorics in the speeches of a group of political parties.

“You see, with each election, the rhetoric is getting more heated and there was a remark by the EU ambassador Žbogar who appealed there should be less nationalistic rhetoric i.e. there should be fewer rhetorics that, in a way, directly would have contributed to elections full of tensions that eventually would have escalated more. Frankly, we don’t expect there would be any escalation until the 11th of December”, said Neziri.
