Serbia's ruling parties hold a dominant portion of popular support nation-wide, but Belgraders might give the opposition a chance to win the capital, provided that opposition leaders agree to run together, says a public opinion poll released by the Demostat center on Aug. 11.

The Demostat program director, Zoran Panovic, said during the presentation that that the Freedom and Justice Party was the most influential opposition party, and if Belgrade elections had taken place this summer, the party would have gotten 13.3 percent of the vote, while the ruling Serbian Progressive Party could win 27.7 percent.

Panovic added that most of the voters' confidence in the Freedom and Justice Party had come from the ability of the opposition group to control polling stations, explaining that currently only the Progressives had the capacity to control them. Panovic also said that the unity of voters was stronger than the unity of opposition leaders.

Demostat went on to say that the parties in power were supported by nearly 50 percent of respondents who had completed primary school, one-third who have reached secondary-education levels, while every sixth respondent supporting the ruling coalition possessed a university degree. As for the opposition boycotting elections, every fourth respondent would vote for it, most of them highly educated.
