Freedom and Justice Party leader Dragan Djilas on April 20 said that the inter-party dialogue aimed at improving election conditions was the last chance to, through reaching an agreement to honor laws, reduce tension in the society and avoid an outpouring of citizens’ dissatisfaction in the street.
“The Freedom and Justice Party is against such a scenario as it carries along great dangers and also potential casualties. If such events take place, they would be the sole responsibility of the Aleksandar Vucic regime and those backing such regime,” Djilas said.
Djilas made this statement commenting on an article signed by members of the team for the European Parliament-facilitated dialogue, and published in, what Djilas described as “pro-regime Belgrade daily Blic.” He added that it represented a serious blow to the dialogue before it had started.
“The article glorifies the role of the Serbian Parliament, where there are no opposition MPs and where opposition politicians, and also professors, actors, journalists, judges, and all those opposing the totalitarian regime are branded as Nazis, fascists, traitors, and thieves,” he said.
Djilas added that the article glorified a parliament where MEPs were spoken of in the same or similar manner, where people were tried and sentenced and where targets were put on backs of those with different opinion.
