Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met with the European Parliament delegation mediating talks on election conditions between the ruling coalition and opposition, a press release from the president’s cabinet said on Friday.
The EP delegation met with Vucic during a break in the talks. The Serbian presidency is across the street from the old parliament building where the talks are being held.
The press release said that the meeting “discussed all important questions and remarks by part of the non-parliamentary opposition to election conditions and procedures in Serbia”.
Ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) MP Vladimir Djukanovic told reporters during a break in the talks on elections conditions that the mood is good and that ruling coalition officials are prepared to hear criticism and agree to any rational proposal while oppostion Nova Stranka leader Zoran Zivkovic said that just three of the 17 proposals had been implemented and called the EU to keep watch over “the un-democratic authorities", the FoNet news agency reported.
The EP delegation met earlier with officials of the opposition Alliance for Serbia prior to the start of this round of the talks.
