Democratic Party leader Zoran Lutovac on Jan. 24 said that his party had not received any invitation for a meeting on the French-German proposal for resolving the Kosovo issue, adding he would not attend such meeting even if invited.
Lutovac told BETA that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic had announced that he would hold consultations with opposition parties on the French-German proposal “with the aim to test the public opinion and political stakeholders, and if he sees that the response will be low, then he will not send out official invitations.”
“Even if we receive an invitation, I will not be attending, because the sole goal of that meeting is to create the impression in the public that Vucic consults with other political stakeholders on important state matters, which is simply not true. He does not consult with anyone, he only needs to create such fancy in facing unpopular decisions,” Lutovac said, adding that Vucic “has been doing all this exclusively to cling on to power.”
“Another reason is that we should be discussing the proposal, the creation of which did not involve Vucic, as he has himself said, but the document was served to him as a final product. If it is so, then he is not an adequate collocutor, but those who designed the proposal,” Lutovac noted.
