Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Tuesday called Kosovo Serbs to vote for the Serb List at the October 6 parliamentary elections because that party “is the only one working with Belgrade and central Serbia”.
The President told the Serbian state TV (RTS) that a vote for the Serb List “is the only way to remain linked” and added that anything else means severing links and stopping possible support from Belgrade.
“The Serbs can vote for whoever they want but I am asking them to choose the Serb List because it is the only one working with Belgrade. Turn out for the elections in big numbers so that we can vote for our survival in our homes, for Serbian salaries in schools, hospitals… All that will be revoked unless the voice of the Serb List is heard,” Vucic said.
Asked if he would try to join in the election campaign in Kosovo, Vucic said that he won’t have time for that because of a number of scheduled meetings with foreign officials and a trip to Prague but added that he does not want to bring danger to the Serbs by going to Kosovo.
He said he would invited the Serb List candidates to Belgrade to symbolically show that Belgrade is their capital.
