The Serbian government named Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic to head a working group on cooperation with the OSCE, Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti reported on Wednesday.
The group is tasked with implementing OSCE recommendations aimed at improving the election process, the daily said, adding that former Central Election Commission President Dejan Djurdjevic will serve as Stefanovic’s deputy.
The decision to form the working group to implement OSCE recommendations comes too late, Transparency Serbia said, recalling that the OSCE’s ODIHR made them after the elections in 2016 and 2017. “Some things connected to the electoral rolls were done but nothing was done to deal with the problems in financing election campaigns, campaigning by state officials or the transparency of the election administration,” the organization said.
