OSCE to send assessment mission to Serbia SecGen says Izvor: N1

OSCE Secretary General Thomas Greminger said in Belgrade on Wednesday that the organization would be sending an assessment mission to Serbia in November to look into election conditions.

He told a news conference that the mission will also assess the type of mission that the OSCE should send to Serbia to monitor the elections next spring, adding that it will release its findings in December.  

Greminger refused to speculate on those findings and on the current election conditions in Serbia, saying that all the recommendations made by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) had not been implemented.

“There is a chance that the election conditions could improve and that opportunity should be used by implementing measures to improve the election process. Election reform can be implemented in the coming weeks and months,” the OSCE Secretary General said.

He said that a boycott is not a long-term sustainable measure and that demonstrations and other forms of non-parliamentary struggle are legitimate in a democracy but the the political processes have to be brought back to institutions at some point.

Greminger met with President Aleksandar Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and other officials as well as with civil society representatives. He is scheduled to meet with opposition officials and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic on Thursday.
