Freedom and Justice Party president Dragan Djilas has sent a letter to the Party of European Socialists (PES) stating that Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic set forth a series of untruths in her dispatch to the party early in January and called on the PES Presidency to support the demand to repeal the results of elections held in Serbia on Dec. 17, 2023.

In his letter to the PES, released by the Party of Freedom and Justice, Djilas stated that Brnabic's letter omitted to thank Russian security services, which allegedly had information on opposition protests, or the police for "excessive use of force" after protests during which more than 50 protesters were arrested.

The leader of the Serbian party also cited statements by the ODIHR election observer mission, the Council of Europe mission and European Parliament member Andreas Schieder, which all say the Dec. 17 election in Serbia was marked by irregularities and was neither fair nor democratic.

He went on to say that opposition supporters in Serbia had "their children expelled from pre-school, employment terminated, had their cars set on fire," and that employees in state administration, public utility companies and public enterprises were required to secure 20 to 50 votes from among their friends to keep their jobs. Djilas once again asked for support from the international community in demands to annul elections in Serbia and to establish a special international commission to investigate all election irregularities.
