President of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) Ivica Dacic said Saturday that he expects new elections in Serbia to be held in March the following year. He expects the SPS to do well at the elections, and possibly better than others.
At a meeting of the SPS Belgrade about new elections, held in the Serbian capital on Saturday, Dacic said the SPS would certainly not run in the elections to come third. He added that the latest attacks on the SPS in which the party had once again been associated with the family Slobodan Milosevic would not reduce the party’s rating.
… The SPS President said that over the following year and a half, the SPS should figure out how to achieve the best possible results at the coming elections together with its partners, the Party of United Pensioners of Serbia (PUPS) and the United Serbia (JS), and then form a ruling coalition with the Democratic Party (DS) once again.
According to him, it is important that the SPS does well at the new elections in both Belgrade and the rest of Serbia, as that would facilitate the realization of the party’s goals.
