A new protest was held in Belgrade on Monday evening by citizens dissatisfied with the outcome of the April 2 presidential election in Serbia. Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic won the vote in the first round. The protesters gathered for the eight time and marched from the National Assembly, past several media outlets – where they made short stops and expressed their dissatisfaction, including state broadcaster RTS, tabloid Informer, and Studio B broadcaster – as well as past the Serbian government and the Electoral Commission (RIK). They carried banners with anti-government messages and those demanding fair and free elections and freedom of the media.
Several thousand people also gathered in Novi Sad and Nis each, while smaller rallies were held in several other towns.
Participants in these protests announced on Monday that they had harmonized their demands, which have now become “the official demands of the protest.”
Beta is reporting that students who have been organizing protests announced that they have called for the dismissal of the entire political elite, headed by Aleksandar Vucic, fair and free elections and ending the dictatorship.
