Serbia votes ‘yes’ in the referendum

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic held a press conference in his party’s headquarters on Sunday night to announce the results of the referendum before the State Election Commission (RIK).

According to the president, preliminary results showed that 60.4 percent of the vote was in favour of adopting the amendments to the Constitution. He said that 39.52 percent of the voters who turned out for the referendum said ‘no’ to the amendments.

He said that a majority of the vote in Belgrade was against the amendments and added that a significant number of members of his ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) voted no.

Polling stations opened at 7 am and closed at 8 pm on Sunday. A total of 6,510,323 people had the right to vote for or against the adopting of the constitutional amendments. Under Serbian law there is no minimum number of voters who have to turn out for the referendum to be valid.

In Belgrade, 54.6% of voters were against the amendments.

Vučić then thanked the citizens who voted and showed their civil responsibility in wanting to participate in important processes for the country.
