The speaker of the Serbian parliament, Ivica Dacic, has said that the inter-party dialog can only succeed if the proposals that are produced are realistic, sustainable and acceptable to all sides, and added that a proposal from the European Parliament (EP), which is mediating the dialog with some opposition parties, would be discussed on Sept. 17 or 18.

Ahead of an Aug. 2 session of the inter-party dialog working group, which will include representatives of the parties that do not want the EP's mediation and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Dacic told the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation that only realistic suggestions could pave the way to everyone's participation in elections.

Asked what has been proposed by the opposition representatives whose dialog is being mediated by the EP, Dacic said he was not acquainted with their demands as they had presented them to the EP, and that the arrangement was for the EP to send him a proposed text by Sept. 1, to be discussed on Sept. 17 and 18.

"So for now there aren't many new details on that, other than what we could hear in the media. The dialog can only be successful if the proposals are realistic, if they are sustainable and acceptable to both sides. And that would create the conditions for what we want -- everyone taking part in the elections and no one looking for excuses for their failures," Dacic said.
