On Nov. 26, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated that the opposition’s claims of “phantom voters” being imported by the regime and warnings that it will take to the streets in the event of voter fraud are “nonsense” spoken in an attempt to create an alibi for the loss the opposition will suffer at the ballot boxes on Dec. 17.

In an evening guest appearance on Pink TV, the president said that the goal of the Serbian Progressive Party’s Serbia Must Not Stop ticket is to win 126 mandates in the parliamentary elections, i.e. an absolute majority.

He added that he supports said ticket “with all [his] heart” and reiterated that voting for any other option amounts to voting for Freedom and Justice Party leader Dragan Djilas.

According to Vucic, the entire opposition combined with the Socialist Party of Serbia – with whom the Progressives have a history of good relations and alliances – has three to four percent less support than the Serbia Must Not Stop ticket.

He went on to say that the Progressives’ ticket is also four to five percent ahead of the opposition in the race for Belgrade’s local government, unlike a few months ago, when the opposition was over eight percent in the lead.
