The inaugural session of the Belgrade Assembly, which was scheduled for 10 a.m. on March 1, has been postponed again because the hitherto government comprising the Serbian Progressive Party and the Socialist Party of Serbia has once again failed to secure a majority that would allow it to form a new ruling coalition.

Head of the temporary governing body Aleksandar Sapic has said that the new session of the Assembly will be delayed again until March 3, which is the last day for the forming of the city assembly or the calling of new elections.

"The oldest alderman, Toma Fila, will postpone this session by two more days, until March 3, and the Serbian Progressive Party aldermen will not show up so that he has grounds to delay it until that date," Sapic told a news conference.

The Progressives and the Socialists, who have governed Belgrade so far, have 54 out of 110 seats in the Assembly and need to arrange the support of two more aldermen, which is uncertain due to a conflict within the We - The Voice of the People movement, some of whose representatives earlier voiced a readiness to back the new ruling coalition.
