The Democratic Party is against the European proposal for resolving the Kosovo issue due to the way in which it was made, its content and because Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic is its guarantor, party leader Zoran Lutovac said on March 24.
"An agreement that has excluded everyone in Serbia except Vucic cannot get our support," Lutovac told the Nova newspaper.
Lutovac said that Serbia had "stopped on the European path because it does not have the rule of law, it does not have free media or free and fair elections."
In his words, the Democratic Party has proposed that Serbia's accession into the EU be part of an agreement on Kosovo that will be backed by citizens.
"Upon joining the EU Serbia could, on the one hand, meet standards and very quickly become a regulated democratic party, while on the other hand any flirting with Russia and its influence on Serbia would definitely be eliminated," said Lutovac.
When asked about his party's relationship with the Freedom and Justice Party, Lutovac replied that "we have normal communication in parliament" but had a different approach to the attitude toward the authorities.
