SNS official Sapic elected Belgrade Mayor

June 20, 2022

Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) official Aleksandar Sapic was elected Mayor of Belgrade on Monday with a tight majority.

Sapic won the votes of 57 of the 110 Belgrade City Assembly members. The SNS and its ally the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) have 56 seats on the Assembly. Sapic and his deputy Vesna Vidovic (SNS) also won the vote of an Assembly member from the Movement to Renew the Kingdom of Serbia who was expelled from that party.

The Assembly also elected members of the City Council.

Sapic said in a speech after his election that he wants Belgrade to be a healthier, more humane and functional champion city. “Along with my gratitude I want to symbolically set an agenda with just one Item – an item that has to be above us all and which we should never forget. That item is Belgrade. That is something we will live with, agreeing or not agreeing but that is the thing which brings together all the similarities and differences among us,” he said.
