Lonesome Victory

What The Elections Brought Us?

The fact that the Serbian National Assembly, the country’s parliament, is almost a one-party institution, and that such situations are also reflected at the local level, creates a specific atmosphere that makes the issues of freedom of public information, the rule of law and democratic political dialogue even more relevant.

The ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) won two million votes and a convincing majority at all levels of government, in the parliamentary, provincial and local elections held on 21st June, the organising of which was not met by major objections from international organisations. Nonetheless, many of the figures in this victory are the subject of lively discussion, and according to experts they’ve further brought into question the possibility of political dialogue in society.
