Serbian elections will be in accordance with the Constitution and law, said Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who also asked the taxi drivers not to radicalise their protests on Monday.

Commenting on Professor Vladimir Goati's idea of postponing elections for six months in order to avoid the boycott by the opposition, Vucic asked: "What should I do, come before the people and say – I'm starting a dictatorship. After four years of my rule, there won't be any elections because these guys (the opposition) are not ready," Vucic asked.

He said he did not want to rule unconstitutionally while the opposition was getting ready for the election. "People are holding hunger strike for early elections, but what I don't understand is people protesting in favour of postponing elections,” Vucic said.

According to him, the elections will be held in accordance with the law and the Constitution, every four years, and every fifth year they will hold presidential elections. He added that elections can only be held earlier, as a snap election.

The President also asked taxi drivers not to do anything radical during their Monday protests, noting that “everyone knows what the state can do, and what it can't allow.”
