A boycott of the election would make sense if 50 percent of the voters would not vote, said the former leader of the Democratic Party (DS), Dragoljub Micunovic, on Sunday.
"The boycott remains senseless from start to finish. It is passive and has a dangerous characteristic. If you do not participate in the elections, you are outside of the legal institutions, with the parliament being the most important one. The question remains - what will happen after that boycott? ,” he said.
Tension is being created in a society where the government is being threatened by non-parliamentary means such as civil disobedience, conflict and protests, he stressed.
“With that, you leave space for repression by the government and a tense atmosphere within society, which is not good and we don’t know what it could lead to,” he told Blic.
He argued that elections could only be delegitimised if half of the population would not vote but that “it won’t happen.”
