Despite voters of both the ruling parties and the opposition being dissatiffied – with economic results, quality of life and growing violence across society – there is scant basis to believe that the results of the elections scheduled for 17th December will bring much in the way of change. However, that doesn’t mean that, in the post-election period, both blocs won’t have to fundamentally change the way they’ve addressed voters to date
Which issues will prove decisive for victory or defeat in these elections? How will such a choice of issues influence the possibility for the opposition to present a united front regarding these matters, given the differences between their voters? Did Ursula von der Leyen already choose the new/ old winner of these elections during her recent visit to Belgrade? Is Belgrade a “done deal”, i.e., is it lost to the ruling party or not? These are the questions we posed to our interlocutors.
