Opposition parties:”No agreement, government doesn’t want fair election conditions”

The meeting between government and opposition representatives on improving the electoral conditions, chaired by speaker Ana Brnabic, ended without an agreement.

Representative of the Serbia Against Violence (SPN) opposition coalition Miroslav Aleksic said the government did not agree to the SPN and NADA opposition coalitions’ demand for all local elections due this year to be held on the same day and that their refusal only confirms their plans to continue doing what they have been doing so far – voter migration, pressure on voters, and phantom voters.

“We want to participate in the elections, but the government has opted to run in the elections without the opposition. We will either have elections or we won’t,” Aleksic told a media conference following the meeting.

He added that Parliament speaker Ana Brnabic informed them that she would call the Belgrade elections on Wednesday, April 3.

Aleksic noted that April 18 was the final deadline to amend the law on local elections extending the deadline for the calling of elections in 120 to 150 days, which would create conditions for all elections to be held on the same day – June 2nd.

Brnabic adjourned the meeting on Wednesday saying that she has conducted all consultations and she did not issue any media statements following the meeting.

Brnabic only said that the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) agrees to the first two demands, but not to the third.
