The rest of the opposition did not receive an official call from Get Going for Change leader Savo Manojlovic to reject all assembly seats over the electoral irregularities so the Democratic Party never deliberated on the matter, Dragana Rakic, the party’s vice president, said on June 10.

Speaking for the Nova daily, Rakic stated that rejecting seats in the national parliament and local assemblies cannot be a goal in itself and that it would make sense only as the first step toward wide-scale civil disobedience – involving the opposition in its entirety.

In her opinion, the June 2 local elections held in Belgrade and other cities and municipalities throughout Serbia “were neither free nor fair,” but the reason the opposition did not do well in the vote is the collapse of the Serbia Against Violence coalition, which ran in the prior general elections of December 2023.
