Participants in early parliamentary elections in Serbia, to be held on March 16, are under legal obligation to end their campaigns by midnight tonight. This is when “election silence” begins – a period when all election propaganda, public rallies, and publishing of predictions of election results are prohibited. The ban will end on Sunday at 20:00 CET, when polling stations close. During this time, the media are allowed to report about the turnout and where the candidates had voted – but not broadcast any statements they made. The media can also provide information on where and when the citizens can vote.
