The Don’t Drown Belgrade (NDMBGD) Initiative said on Thursday it would boycott the spring general and local elections in Serbia since, as it said, “there was no progress in meeting requests for a free and fair vote," the Beta news agency reported.

The Initiative said in a statement it would draft a ‘Declaration on an active election boycott’ which it would offer to citizens, academicians, experts, civil society organisations and political parties for approval.

The NDMBGD recalled that all opposition players, many parliamentarian and non-parliamentarian opposition alliances, parties and movements signed last December a joint declaration agreeing there were no conditions for a free and fair vote.

  “The experts from the 1 in 5 million (anti-government) protest organisation, together with the representatives of the civil society put forward recommendations for the improvement of the election rules. After a series of meetings (between the authorities and opposition)… it is clear that there is no political will within the regime to meet the requests which would secure the conditions for fair and free elections,” the NDMBGD said in the statement.

The initiative thus joined the People’s Party in already opting for the boycott. The rest of the opposition is still to decide with some saying it should be right now while others believe they should wait until the elections are called for.
