The leader of the League of Social Democrats of Vojvodina (LSV), Nenad Canak, said that the decision on whether to participate in the elections will be made by the main committee of the party, but that he would wholeheartedly advocate for participating.
"The conditions are far from ideal, but they were not ideal in 1996 or 2000 either, yet we would participate and win," Canak told Blic.
An election boycott has in the past brought Tomislav Nikolic to the post of President of Serbia instead of Boris Tadic, he said, arguing that Nikolic was “the absolute worst option in written history.”
He argued that what can be achieved with elections could be seen last week in Hungary.“By voting for the opposition and against Orban, citizens secured victory in Budapest and in several other big cities."
"This very much reminds of the victory by the democratic opposition against the Milosevic regime in the winter between 1996 and 1997, which paved the way for the final victory on September 24, 2000, the results of which were defended on October 5, 2000," he said.
