Three of Serbia's opposition parties agreed that Marinika Tepic, a deputy leader of the Party of Freedom and Justice (SSP) and the most outspoken critic of President Aleksandar Vucic and his ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), would head their joint list for the 2022 early general vote.
Serbia holds presidential, early general and Belgarde elections on April 3, 2022.
SSP, People’s Party and Democratic Party (DS) also agreed that the second on the list for a new parliament would be Miroslav Aleksic of the People’s Party, the Nova daily learned from its sources.
The distribution of the parliamentary seats was also agreed upon.
Tepic did not want o comment on the news, saying the final agreement should be made by the end of the week.
„Negotiations between our party and our partners are still ongoing, so I do not want to give details. I understand that many are interested in this topic, but I ask you for patience,“ she told the Nova.
The daily’s sources also said the three parties agreed that the candidates for the mayor of Belgrade and the president of Serbia would be agreed by consensus.
Their names are expected at the last moment before the campaign officially starts since the opposition candidates immediately become targets of the authorities, MPs and the media controlled by the regime.
Tepic and Aleksic have already been targeted in a smear campaign for a long time.
