The European Parliament has sent an electoral observation mission to Kosovo to observe the elections to a Kosovo-wide Assembly that will take place on Saturday.

The delegation, led by Doris Pack from the EP group of the European People's Party, included five other members, according to a news release from the EP on Friday.

They are expected to give a press conference in Pristina, capital of the Serbian province, on Sunday before wrapping up their mission.

"The election observation efforts are being co-ordinated by the Council of Europe, and the six MEPs will be among the roughly 150 short-term election observers deployed throughout the territory," said the release.

The elections are an important step for Kosovo, since the Assembly will be given the task to choose a provisional president and government for the region.

The final status of Kosovo is still under international diplomatic discussion with Serbia under the auspices of the United Nations.

Kosovo has wanted to be independent out of Serbia, but the latter will not allow it to happen.
