Dragan Djilas, who initiated the formation of the Alliance, said that the Alliance intended to build up Serbia to become a prosperous country, but that they themselves were not enough while the President of the Democratic Party, Zoran Lutovac, said that the ideological differences between the parties in the Alliance were not important.

– Our differences are irrelevant. We are not a sum of bad ratings, but we are encouraged to fight together for the common good – Lutovac noted.

President of the People’s Party, Vuk Jeremic, said that the Balkans were once again coming to the forefront of the world’s scene, that changing of the borders were once again on the menu, and that the former foreign minister of Cyprus recently asked him whether it was true that Serbia was the first country in the world willing to re-arrange the border willingly and in peace.

Jeremic said that, because of Kosovo, the government in Serbia has the support of the international community and it that it would not be easy to cut that “power line”. Bosko Obradovic from the Dveri Movement said that the Alliance had three important goals – a 30-point programme platform, forming a transitional government that would last a year, and creating a new political culture where the stakeholders could talk normally, regardless of their differences.

Borko Stefanovic reminded that a coalition “Zajedno” was created on this day in 1990 and that, regardless of the fact that some people were against it, the coalition prevented a lot of misappropriations in Serbia.
