Freedom and Justice Party leader Dragan Djilas said on Feb. 9 that the European Parliament's resolution on elections in Serbia did not contain a single point directed against Serbia and only criticized December's “rigged” elections.
Djilas said in an interview with Nova S that it was good for the state that institutions examined every allegation and found out what happened and that it was also good for the state for those responsible to be held to account and that the situation in the Serbian media community needed to change. Djilas, who is also a Serbian Member of Parliament, said that the Resolution was the consequence of clear “election manipulation and fraud,” and that it was backed by 90 percent of MEPs.
The opposition party leader also said that outgoing Prime Minister Ana Brnabic “has nothing to resign over,” and that cabinet's term had expired when the term of the parliament that elected her ended. Djilas was referring to Brnabic’s statement of Feb. 9, when in a comment on the EP resolution requesting an international investigation into allegations of election fraud in Serbia’s parliamentary, provincial and local polls she said that she would resign as soon as she was presented with such a demand as the Serbian prime minister.
“She really does not understand that the request has been filed, and that she doe not have anything to resign over, because a cabinet's term ends when the term of the legislature that put it into office ends. Humiliating,” Djilas wrote on X.
