Serbian Progressive Party scored a landslide victory in general elections held on June 21, winning two-thirds of the seats in the Serbian parliament.

 

Only the Socialist Party-United Serbia coalition and the Serbian Patriotic Alliance, led by Aleksandar Sapic, crossed the 3-percent threshold for representation in the national assembly, while the Movement for the Restoration of the Kingdom of Serbia is close to the threshold.

 

Serbian President and Serbian Progressive Party leader Aleksandar Vucic has said that his party had “gained huge trust from citizens, the highest ever in Serbia.”

 

According to the CRTA organization, the voter turnout was between 48 and 49 percent. The organization noted several incidents at the polling stations, including three potential cases of vote buying. Irregularities were recorded, according to CRTA, at five percent of polling stations. These included “carousel voting,” the officers not checking the IDs of the voters and individuals voting for other people.

 

According to CeSID, another organization overseeing the elections, there had been numerous irregularities at the polling stations, such as violation of the secrecy of the ballot, photographing ballots, or folding them in such a way that it was visible who the person had voted for.
