On April 7 the Alliance for Serbia condemned what it called was the unbecoming behavior of Serbian Progressive Party leader and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic who it said was campaigning despite the situation in the country.
The Alliance released a statement saying that it was not normal for the handover of medical equipment to have to wait until the president could deliver it personally. "It is not normal for him to be walking around Serbia and exposing numerous people involved in his personal election campaign to risk at the height of the pandemic in Serbia. It is not normal that equipment purchased with the people's money from the state budget is being presented as his personal gift. It is not normal for him to be constantly in the media with his whining and panic-mongering and hours-long tirades on every national TV station," the statement said.
"The incumbent authorities obviously want to use government acts and the introduction of a state of emergency and the total media blackout as far as different opinions and voices in the opposition go, as well as the persecution of dissenters to continue campaigning," the statement said.
