Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić Scores Landslide Election Victory
An early official count in Serbia’s national elections has confirmed a landslide victory for the president, Aleksandar Vučić, and his populist party, important allies of Russia in the Balkans and Europe.
Vucic scored an outright victory in Sunday’s presidential election with the backing of 60% of the voters, while his Serbian Progressive party (SNS) gained 43% of ballots in parliamentary elections, according to a near complete tally by state election authorities.
The results mean no runoff vote is needed in the presidential election and that Vučić’s party will be able to form the next government in a coalition with junior partners in the 250-member assembly.
