Polling stations have opened for general elections in Serbia on Sunday morning, in a race where incumbent Prime Minister Ivica Dacic risks losing the post to his deputy Aleksandar Vucic.
- Polling stations opened 07:00/am local time and will remain open until 20:00.
- 3,020 candidates from nineteen political parties will compete to enter the 250-seat Serbian parliament.
BELGRADE – At polling centers in Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Kosovo, 6,767,324 citizens will be able to vote according to data from the Serbian Electoral Commission. The official results of the elections will be announced on March 20 on the official gazette.
Political analysts estimate that the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), under Vukic’s presidency, is the favourite to win the general elections – followed by the Dacic’s Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS).
Serbian public opinion surveys showed tight competition between the SNS and SPS coalition and that the public believe Vucic’s political charisma is stronger than Dacic’s.
