The government of the Republic of Serbia adopted a set of draft election laws: the Bill on the Election of the President of the Republic, the Bill on the Election of Deputies and the Bill on Local Elections at the National and Local Levels.

The new laws bring significant innovations in terms of protection of rights in election procedures and easier candidacy of political parties of national minorities, as well as in terms of organisation and transparency of the work of election administration bodies.

The proposed solutions were created, on the one hand, as a result of parallel inter-party dialogues on election conditions with the participation of representatives of the European Parliament, i.e., without their participation.

Also, the recommendations of the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (ODIHR) on monitoring election procedures in the Republic of Serbia were implemented.

The government of Serbia adopted the Bill on Financing Political Activities, which provides transparent monitoring of costs during and after the election process.

A novelty in the Bill is that political entities can borrow exclusively from banks and other financial organisations for which this is their main activity.

In order to further harmonise with the election regulations, the Government adopted the Bill on Amendments to the Law on Out-of-Court Procedure, which refers to the voting right of persons partially deprived of legal capacity.

With this conclusion, the price of the PCR test was reduced from RSD 9,000 to RSD 6,000, and the price of the antigen test from RSD 3,500 to RSD 1,800.
