Belgrade City Assembly members elected Aleksandar Sapic new mayor of Belgrade on June 20, with 57 of the 110 councilors voting in his favor.
After the vote, Sapic told the Assembly that he wanted the Serbian capital to be healthier, more functional and humane, and said he would "fight equally for the interests of all Belgraders" and that it was his duty "to just be mayor, regardless of political, ethnic or any other affiliation."
Vesna Vidovic was elected deputy mayor, and the councilors also voted in the proposed City Council members.
As announced in an earlier debate, the opposition did not support Sapic for mayor. The opposition takes exception to Sapic for aligning with the Serbian Progressive Party despite earlier statements pledging never to work with them, and also criticized his work as head of the New Belgrade municipality.
