Get Going for Change movement campaign manager Savo Manojlovic has said that the movement's councilors will verify their mandates and then leave the inaugural session of the Belgrade Assembly out of protest.

"The reason for this act is the complete violation of the electoral process, but it is primarily reflected in what is happening in Nis today. The capital must show solidarity with the rest of Serbia," Manojlovic told a news conference held ahead of the opening session of the new makeup of the Belgrade Assembly on June 21.

The Get Going for Change councilors will donate their fees to charity.

Manojlovic stressed the movement's support for a declaration on the fate of the Belgrade Fair and former Army General Staff building, which has been backed by more than 38 professional institutions, adding that the movement opposed the demolition of the two aforementioned complexes.

He also said that lithium mining had been revived as a topic, even though it was illegal and unconstitutional.

According to the results of the local elections held on June 2, the ticket rallied around the ruling Serbian Progressive Party, Aleksandar Vucic - Belgrade Tomorrow, won 58 percent of votes and will have 64 seats in the Belgrade Assembly.

The Savo Manojlovic - I too Am Belgrade ticket won 19 percent of votes, i.e. 21 seats, while the We Choose Belgrade coalition won close to 13 percent of votes and the coalition will have 14 councilors.

The We - The Power of the People - Dr. Branimir Nestorovic ticket won nine percent of votes, i.e. 10 mandates, while the minority Russian Party also managed to get into the Assembly with one representative.
