The President of Serbia and the Serbian Progressive Party, Aleksandar Vučić, proposed last night at a meeting at the SNS headquarters, that all election rallies, including the big rally in Novi Sad and the final one in Niš, should be cancelled.
The SNS leader does not want in any way to jeopardize the health of the population, since a large number of people were expected to show up at the rallies of the strongest party in the country.
The first meeting was scheduled for Friday in Novi Sad, with at least 30,000 supporters expected to attend.

Vučić presented this proposal despite the fact that the epidemiological situation in Serbia is far from dramatic and despite the position of experts, mainly epidemiologists, who believe that mass meetings should not be banned, as evidenced by last night’s football match between FC Red Star and FC Partizan, played in front of tens of thousands of people.
The President himself said that by organising mass election rallies he does not want to endanger the health of the population, because “the health and safety of Serbian citizens is above politics”.
The proposal was adopted by a narrow majority.
