Fajon to N1: More recommendations for Serbian elections

January 27, 2022
Tanja Fajon MEP told N1 on Thursday that more recommendations might be made to improve conditions for elections in Serbia.
Fajon is one of the facilitators engaged in the inter-party dialogue between Serbian ruling and opposition parties in an effort to improve conditions for elections. She came to Belgrade with Vladimir Bilcik, Eduard Kukan and Knut Fleckenstein. The European Parliament delegation is due to meet with President Aleksandar Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Parliament Speaker Ivica Dacic, heads of parliament party groups and the opposition parties that rejected their mediation.
She said that more recommendations could be made after her talks with political leaders on Friday. “I expect that we will make recommendations again or talk to all players about what can be done,” she said. “The elections will be very significant and I want everyone to have an opportunity to choose at free, transparent and fair elections and that will be our most important message to the authorities,” she said.
Fajon said the facilitator delegation faces two hard days during which they will see if agreed measures have been implemented, the preparations for the April elections and what remains to be done to improve conditions for fair and democratic elections.
According to Fajon, the fact that some opposition parties have not named representatives to the Republic Election Commission and interim media monitoring body is not crucial to the elections.
