Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia’s President, told reporters in Berlin on Tuesday he could talk to everyone but did feel like meeting the opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) group leaders Dragan Djilas, Bosko Obradovic and Vuk Jeremic, the FoNet news agency reported.

In what seems to be an answer to Obradovic’s question how he could talk to Kosovo’s Albanian leaders and not to the opposition’s representatives, Vucic told the journalists after the Berlin Summit of the Western Balkans' leaders held on Monday that their demands were in the jurisdiction of the parliament.

“First they don’t want to see me, to hear me, and now they want something from me. On the other hand, I’m not responsible for them (the opposition) and their ideas, the parliament is,” Vucic said.

He added he would talk to them if their parties crossed the five percent trash-hold in the next elections within the aftermath consultations about a prime minister-designate.

The opposition has accused Vucic of grabbing all the power, including the executive and legislative thus violating the Constitution since the role of a president in Serbia is mostly ceremonial.

They joined civil #1 in 5 million anti-regime protests that have been going for almost five months across Serbia. The demonstrators first demanded that Vucic and the Government resign, then to have six to nine months of free media to prepare for fair elections.

The latest demands included a dialogue with the authorities through the formation of joint commissions to deal with media freedom and new election rules.
