Former guerrilla leader Hashim Thaci has claimed victory in Kosovo's parliamentary election, though official results are yet to be confirmed.
Mr Thaci said it was "a historic day for Kosovo". He has promised to deliver independence for the Serbian province within weeks.
Earlier, independent monitors said Mr Thaci's Democratic Party was well ahead, mid-way through the count.
But correspondents say a boycott by Kosovan Serbs may undermine the result.
