A senior Serbian ruling party official said on Wednesday that the first session of the new parliament could be held early in July.

Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) deputy leader Milos Vucevic told the pro-regime TV Pink that the final results of the April 3 parliamentary elections will be released only after the repeat vote in the village of Veliki Trnovac in southern Serbia on May 27. He said the final results could be released early in June, starting the 30 day deadline to constitute the new parliament.

Vucevic said he expects the constitutive session of parliament to be held early in July before internal party and inter-party talks on forming a government. The deadline for a new government is 90 days after the first parliament session.
He said that President Aleksandar Vucic will be sworn in for his second term in office on May 31 in front of the outgoing parliament.
