The Serbian Dveri Movement’s leader, Bosko Obradovic, said on July 5 that his party requested President Aleksandar Vucic and the Government of Serbia to resign, and that early elections be called on all levels.

“We have been requesting the same ever since February 27, when Vucic accepted in Brussels to implement the anti-constitutional Franco-German agreement providing for the recognition of a false state of Kosovo,” Obradovic said in an interview with the Nova paper, following President Vucic’s promise that elections would take place as soon as anyone from the opposition asked.

Obradovic said that his Dveri “wouldn’t mind if the existing electoral threshold has been increased,” which Vucic had suggested earlier, but that an election reform in democracies should require a consensus between the authorities and the opposition, and that it’s wrong to conduct it right ahead of a vote. Instead, it should skip the first polls, and apply to the next, Obradovic explained.

The Dveri leader believes that “the patriotic opposition should run united in the next nationwide polls, creating a single pre-election bloc to win between 15 percent and 20 percent of the vote. The birth of such a coalition alone would make it the strongest opposition political force and the second largest political group in Serbia.”
