Freedom and Justice Party head Dragan Djilas said on April 22 that he cannot explain the dissolution of the oppositional Serbian Against Violence coalition but that he refuses to believe that any of his former allies chose to run in the elections due to a pact with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

In a guest appearance on N1 TV, Djilas stated that his party, along with the Together and SRCE parties and the NADA coalition, will vote against the proposed amendments to the Local Elections Act and will also submit a draft constitutional bill moving the elections for the fall.

“We believe this is the only way to ensure fair elections, because only [by postponing] will there be time to implement all the ODIHR recommendations [for improving Serbia’s electoral process],” Djilas explained.

The Serbia Against Violence coalition ceased to exist after six of its parties accepted the idea of entering the elections under the current circumstances, while Djilas’s Freedom and Justice Party, Zdravko Ponos’s Serbia Center (SRCE) party and Nebojsa Zelenovic’s Together for Serbia are against the planned June vote.
