PRISTINA, Kosovo — Incumbent Prime Minister Hashim Thaci claimed victory Sunday in Kosovo's first general election since the province declared independence from Serbia, as an independent exit poll showed his Democratic Party of Kosovo 6 percentage points ahead of its rivals.

"This is a vote for a European Kosovo," Thaci told The Associated Press. "It is a referendum for good governance."

According to the exit poll, conducted by Kosovo-based Gani Bobi Center, Thaci won 31 percent of the vote, with former coalition partners Democratic League of Kosovo trailing at 25 percent. If the results are confirmed it means Thaci will have the upper hand in forming a government. Official results are expected Monday.
