The Serbian Government has proposed five candidates to the National Parliament Assembly as members of the parliamentary monitoring committee that would supervise the behaviour of political parties, candidates and the media during the election campaign.
The list of candidates includes: Branko M. Rakić, Professor of the Law Faculty, Miodrag Savović, retired professor, Ivona Pantelić, anchorwoman from Radio and Television of Serbia (RTS), Jelena Milenković Orlić and Aleksandar Stamatović, philologist.
According to the relevant law, the Supervisory Body has ten members and monitors pre-election activities and reports any irregularities in the conduct of participants in the electoral process.
The Speaker of the National Parliament, Maja Gojkovic started the process of forming this body at the end of November and invited the Prime Minister and parliamentary groups to propose the members of the committee, who will be appointed by the Parliament.
Despite being required by law, this body has not been formed in any electoral process since 2000.
