ČRo Plus: The elections in Serbia are won by President Aleksandar Vučić and his Serbian Progressive Party. How fair were the elections?

Our research fellow Jana Juzová spoke on Czech Radio Plus about the elections in Serbia, which did not go according to all standards. Various electoral fraud and voter intimidation occurred during the elections. An important factor in the Serbian elections was the situation that preceded it. It was also discussed what the victory of Aleksandar Vučić and his party would mean for the future of the country.

In the current political situation, Serbia could not be expected to hold elections to all standards. There have been cases of manipulation of voters' lists, intimidation of opposition voters, attacks on opposition politicians, and possibly vote-buying. At least now we know that the elections did not go as they should have.
