Political analyst Cvijetin Milivojevic said on Oct. 21 that the latest parliamentary elections were not legitimate and that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic had announced an early vote even before the new government had been formed.
Speaking for Nova S TV Milivojevic also said that the opposition should not accept the concurrent holding of local and parliamentary elections but should insist on their separate organization.
“Why is Vucic insisting on that? Well, so that he can win at one blow, and by using his name. There are no regular elections if they proceed with his name involved, if you have [his] domination in all media, if you have a propaganda that intimidates, discredits, and lynches every publicly spoken opinion,” Milivojevic said and added that if not pressured, Vucic will not organize a new dialogue with the opposition.
Commenting on an announced fight against organized crime Milivojevic said that Vucic has not initiated any serious investigation of the people from his party or those close to him. “When he speaks about tycoons, mobsters, racketeers, he alludes to those who were part of the previous authorities. Well, if they are here, why hasn’t he arrested them in all these past years?” Milivojevic asked.
The analyst also said that “from a war propagandist, Vucic has turned into a propagandist against his own people,” adding that such a transformation is not normal and poses a danger to society.
