Serbian Parliament constitutive session resumed on March 19 with a debate on election of parliament speaker and deputy speaker and working bodies.

For parliament speaker, the Serbian Progressive Party led coalition, which secured absolute majority in the December elections, has nominated Ana Brnabic, the incumbent prime minister and the Progressives’ Belgrade chapter commissioner.

During the March 19 debate, Progressives’ MP Milenko Jovanov read a short biography of Brnabic without giving any comments on her candidacy.

The session, presided by Stojan Radenovic as the oldest MP until the election of parliament speaker, has seen heavy accusations levelled against the opposition, including those that their ideology was that of Nazism and that they wanted to provoke a civil war.

The opposition responded with booing, noise, banners on election fraud, and a performance act with MPs holding the Oscar statuettes alluding to a report by investigative portal KRIK, revealing that drug lord Darko Saric’s correspondence via the Sky application mentioned the code name “Oscar,” which some in Serbia believe is actually the nickname used for Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
