Vladimir Pejic from Faktor Plus told the Blic that such a result was expected because most of the voters support the government.

He said that the agreement would be good for both the government and the opposition, adding that “nobody will lose the battle” because, no matter what the result of the negotiations, both sides “will eventually declare themselves victorious”.

When asked about talks between the political party in power and the opposition, 38% of respondents said it was an attempt by the opposition to justify elections, 21% thought it was a willingness on the government’s part to have fully democratic elections, and 16% said it was the opposition’s wish for fair electoral conditions.

According to 12% of the respondents, the government wants to push the opposition to the elections, 10% think everything is balanced out, while 3% have no idea about it.

The Faktor Plus survey was conducted by telephone from 29th July to 1st August on a sample of 1,000 people from Central Serbia, excluding Kosovo.
