Freedom and Justice Party president Dragan Djilas said on Jan.5 that 30,000 extra voters were listed on voter rolls in Belgrade in elections in April 2022 and that sometimes up to 100 people were registered to one address and stressed that this was a much bigger problem than just overseeing voting stations.

"Today people who have realized that there were 100 people registered to their address are visiting Belgrade district administrations and the Interior Ministry. They find this out when executors come to confiscate someone's property in cases when they haven't paid something," Djilas told the N1 TV station.

Commenting on Serbian President and Serbian Progressive Party leader Aleksandar Vucic's announcement that he would not run for a re-election as president and that he would resign as leader of the party, Djilas said that he wished that that were true. "I believe that they will truly not change the Constitution, because that would really be too much, while whether or not he will stay in politics, but in some other position, is another question," Djilas said.

He said that he expected a general elections by the end of 2023 as well as that the Freedom and Justice Party was talking to all parties with similar political views but that it would not cooperate with those, who among other things, opposed Serbia's membership in the EU. "The essence is to not have the opposition's work turn into an argument, or turn into a contest to see who mentions Aleksandar Vucic the most, but to show people how they can live better tomorrow. That is the essence," Djilas said.
