The president of Serbia and the Serbian Progressive Party, Aleksandar Vucic, said on June 15 that it was still too early to talk post-election coalitions and that the results of the June 21 election needed to be seen first, because it may well happen that the Serbian Progressive Party will not be part of a new cabinet.
"There may be some surprises, maybe we won't even be involved in the composing of the new government, maybe others will form it," said Vucic and added that all elections were very difficult, while the Progressive Party was "the only party that is not leading a negative campaign."
He went on to say that he had talked with European People's Party President Donald Tusk, to whom he conveyed his belief that the next cabinet would have a mandate for more intensive European integration processes, i.e. that it would be more committed to that process and that it would rapidly push Serbia toward membership in the EU.
Vucic added that the polls would be organized at 90 polling stations in Kosovo and Metohija on June 21, and that he expected the arrival of EU special envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue Miroslav Lajcak in Belgrade on June 22.
