A parliamentary candidate from the party of Kosovo's Prime Minister Hashim Thaci was shot dead on Sunday, police said, one week after an inconclusive general election in the tiny Balkan nation. Kosovo authorities have not yet certified the results of last Sunday's election, so it is not known whether Elvis Pista had won a seat in parliament with Thaci's ruling Democratic Party of Kosovo. However, an election commission official said he won most votes in his area for the PDK.
