Which celebrities are endorsing which candidates at Belgrade election?

Should celebrities, academia and other public figures publicly voice their support for certain politicians? The arguments for and against are many. Some people think that celebrities are too influential, especially in a society dominated by social media with people increasingly re-posting celebrity views on political issues even if some of these views lack genuine weight and are void of critical opinion.

Other people argue that celebrities are often out of touch with real social issues and hence are not good barometer on dispensing their views of the society and politics. Some are saying that, after all, celebrities are voters too and they are entitled to voice their political views. Regardless of the pro and con arguments, we have decided to just give you the list of the celebrities, public figures and members of the academia who have openly sided with one political option or a candidate at the upcoming Belgrade election. We are going to leave it to you do discern whether they have made a good or a bad choice.
