Freedom of the media and free and fair elections are our main message, said MEP and Speaker of the European Parliament's Delegation for relations with Serbia, Tanja Fajon, adding that responsibility for this is on the authorities as well as on other political actors.

Fajon feels that "there is an ambition to create better electoral conditions and restore citizens' confidence in the electoral process."

She made the impression that "the story with the opposition announcing the boycott was not over" and that "even those parties might change their minds so that citizens could have more choice."

"Anything is possible, we want to open the door, especially to the part of the pro-European democratic opposition, because not taking part in the elections for the future of Serbia would be a great disservice," Fajon said.

In her view, "a boycott is not a contribution to democracy, it may be the last resort, but it can hardly be successful in the long run."

"I am aware that those who have declared a boycott believe that there are no conditions for elections and that they criticize the government for not allowing the media to work freely, but that is why, as mediators, we are trying to improve the situation," Fajon added.
