The actor Sergej Trifunovic is the new president of the Free Citizens’ Movement (PSG), which used to be helmed by Sasa Jankovic before he withdrew from political life.
He won 60% of the votes in the election assembly, which lasted nearly six hours, against the other candidate for the position, Aleksandar Olenik.
PSG members also elected two members of the Movement’s presidency – Petar Miletic and Lidija Martinovic.
The appointment of the new president of the PSG came a month after Sasa Jankovic resigned from the position.
In the first media address after his appointment, Trifunovic said that he would personally work to unite the opposition forces in Serbia, adding that the PSG would not enter the umbrella opposition organization, Alliance for Serbia (SZS) technically, but that it would continue to cooperate with all the opposition blocs in the country, particularly the Local Front.
“There is a lot of work to do, particularly on bringing back the people who left and connecting to new members, because everything rests on people, human resources are of utmost importance. It is also important that, in this atmosphere of darkness, fear and foolishness, we bring people together and restore their so that they can really be free citizens, whether they belonged to this movement or not,” Trifunovic said.
“What I’m going to do personally is work on unifying the opposition. We are definitely not going to join the SZS, but that does not mean that we should not cooperate with everyone. Entering the SZS is not something that the members of our movement are willing to do”, Trifunovic added.
