Serbian ruling coalition claims conditions right for democratic debate on Kosovo Izvor: Tanjug/Dragan Kujundžić

Serbian ruling coalition officials said that the conditions for a democratic parliamentary debate on Kosovo are in place and blasted the opposition for boycotting next Monday’s session of parliament which will hear a report on the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue from President Aleksandar Vucic.

Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) MP group chief Aleksandar Martinovic said he would ask for double the time for debate so that both ruling coalition and opposition MPs would have enough time to debate the report on Belgrade-Pristina negotiations since 2013. “Some opposition leaders accused us of running from parliament and not having the courage to debate. We have shown that we are openly debating Kosovo and ways to solve the problem,” he told a news conference.  

“The Alliance for Serbia does not like to see the President meeting with the heads of the Serbian Orthodox Church or come to parliament,” Martinovic said adding that the opposition has no political idea about Kosovo.  

Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) MP group chief Djordje Milicevic said that all the conditions had been met for a democratic debate at the parliament session devoted to Kosovo, adding that it’s important for all MPs to take part. “No one can say that the authorities are preventing a democratic debate,” he told reporters.  

Milicevic said he had not heard a single proposal from the part of the opposition boycotting the session.
