Serbia’s opposition leader: New authorities’ first move will be to arrest Vucic

September 4, 2019

The leader of an opposition party said on Wednesday there wasn't any reason for Serbia's Parliament special session on abolishing diplomatic visas unless “someone plans to flee the country,” and that the first decision of a new administration would be to arrest President Aleksandar Vucic, the Beta news agency reported.

Zoran Zivkovic, the head of the New Party (Nova stranka) and Serbia’s former Prime Minister, told reporters that along with Vucic, all those who participated in his rule would be also arrested “for treason, organised crime and corruption and organising the murders of political opponents.”

“Whether they will be convicted is up to the court, but new authorities must arrest them for preventing them from fleeing to Paraguay or Columbia,” Zivkovic said.

Speaking about the forthcoming elections, he reiterated that his party would decide whether to boycott them once they were called.

So far, several opposition parties, organisations and movements said they would not take part in the elections under the current rules.

Zivkovic added that it “would be enough” for the democratic process if the OSCE would control the elections since “they are not active only during the voting day but also months ahead.”
