The Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) and the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) are separately running in the upcoming election, SNS deputy leader Milos Vucevic told Tanjug on Saturday, adding that representatives of the two parties met that morning.

Vucevic mentioned that there is still a possibility for the two parties to run jointly in some local electoral units.

SPS leader Ivica Dacic said recently he would continue talks with the ruling SNS and Aleksandar Vucic on how the parties would run in the elections.

“However we decide to run in the elections, our idea is to continue cooperation with Aleksandar Vucic and the SNS, as Serbia’s biggest interest is development, for it to strengthen its position and for us to have unity in the difficult times ahead of us,” Dacic said at a press conference.

„We have suggested to Aleksandar Vucic to consider, if there is a need for it and we are prepared to do so, for us to run with a common list (SNS), given the gravity of the problems we are facing as a country,“ Dacic said.
