The Mayor of Sabac and one of the leaders of the Alliance for Serbia, Nebojsa Zelenovic, told N1 on Sunday that he was not afraid of extreme right-winger Misa Vacic but that he feels threatened because of his recent statements, as he believes Vacic is not saying anything without the permission or direction of President Aleksandar Vucic.
Zelenovic said he sees a solution to the growing divisions and a bad atmosphere in Serbia’s society in fair elections, but that the government does not show any willingness to change the electoral conditions.
"Misa Vacic is not a dangerous character, but behind him is an army of people connected to crime who are doing the dirty work for the Serbian Progressive Party. I know some of them personally in Sabac, and such people probably exist in Bujanovac and other places as well, and then we are supposed to talk about fair elections? What?" Zelenovic told N1.
He said he was not sure whether an election would take place at all in the spring of next year, considering the atmosphere in the country.
He also said that European Parliament Rapporteur for Serbia, Vladimir Bilcik, recently showed him a document with commitments Serbia’s Government took over to improve electoral conditions, adding that most of them were not fulfilled.
This is why the opposition will continue the campaign to boycott the regular parliamentary election, Zelenovic explained.
Vacic told Zelenovic in Sabac recently that he would put him in jail where people would spit on him and that he would drown him and his associates in the Drina river.
