People's Party president Vuk Jeremic said on Feb. 19 that there could be no compromise in the fight to change the system and that the boycott of the "fake elections" must be complete and without exception, as "the regime can't be fought with deals" and creating "phantom civic groups" whose sole purpose in his opinion is to gain privilege and more councilor seats.
"You can't acquiesce to leech off the system and at the same time aspire to change it. I'm glad that all of the real Serbian opposition is boycotting. Those who are on the fence -- we don't need them, and whoever runs in the fake election with Vucic on April 26 -- good luck to them," Jeremic said in Kragujevac at the People's Party booth.
Jeremic urged citizens to "boycott the system" and the "electoral farce" of the April 26 election.
"Boycott: That is our message. Boycott of understanding politics and pursuing public office for personal gain. As long as that's how things stand, there won't be any healing. Boycott means sacrifice, because pursuing public office in a normal state means sacrifice for the higher good and the good of the people," Jeremic said.
