Chair of the largest opposition group, the Alliance for Serbia (SzS), Nebojsa Zelenovic said after the meeting that the authorities had the deadline until 15 September to select the new composition of REM in the parliament and if this failed to happen, SzS would boycott the upcoming elections.

“SzS put forward a very specific request, related to the political consensus that a new composition of REM should be selected until 15 September. We are not asking that we should select the new composition politically, but to comply with legal requirements. I expect this solution, if it fails to happen, we will start a boycott”, Zelenovic said.

Electing a new composition of REM would actually be only the first indicator of good will and thus the authorities would turn declarations into acts and only then the door would be open for further discussions about the recommendations of an independent expert team for holding a fair election, Zelenovic said. He concluded that the former format of the meetings did not yield results because the in three previous sessions the authorities did not move an inch.

“It is time enter the next phase and this will not happen unless the authorities do not fulfill the media conditions”, he said. “SzS is actively preparing the strategy for a boycott, which means that at some point all of Serbia would stop”, Zelenovic concluded.

“Without meeting opposition demands, there are no fair elections. Without elections, there is no legitimate parliament, nor is it possible for the state to function properly”, Nebojsa Zelenovic, chairman of the opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) and Sabac Mayor, said on interview to daily Blic, Monday edition.

BLIC: Is the SzS closer to boycotting the elections at this point?

ZELENOVIC: “SzS is exactly where the civil protests are, with the demands formulated by independent experts. Fulfillment of the requirements leads us to the elections. Otherwise, Vucic leads the country into even more chaos.“

Does the boycott apply only to parliamentary elections, or on local elecitons too?

“Failure to enable fair elections carries the risk of unforeseen consequences. We have become a barrel of gunpowder. That’s why I firmly believe that we should continue to try to find a way out of this dangerous situation. Time is running out and now we have onlu few weeks left. The next month, September, is the last moment to create fair electoral conditions. “And without them, there are no legitimate elections. Without the opposition, there is no legitimate parliament, nor is it possible to make any legitimate referendum.

The boycott will lead to the loss of opposition municipalities?

“Vucic can also abolish municipalities... Insanity must be resisted. As long as there is a chance, I will advocate dialogue. But, again, we're on the edge”, Zelenovic concluded.

If the opposition’s demands are not met and an election boycott is organized, the Alliance for Serbia (SzS) is preparing its boycott strategy, stated chairman of the opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) Sabac Mayor Nebojsa Zelenovic. In a guest appearance on TV N1 he explained that an election boycott does not means sitting at home that day, but a serious series of activities and campaigns that should channel the citizens’ discontent into change.

When asked whether a referendum on Kosovo, at the same time as the elections, could be the government’s leverage to force the opposition from giving up the boycott, Zelenovic said that it would be impossible for anything significant to be decided while the citizens are in the streets and the opposition is not in parliament. “The citizens and the opposition have been peacefully protesting for already eight months and saying that they want fair elections, and for that we have 18 smashed heads,” said Zelenovic, alluding to the violence against opposition supporters by members of the regime.

“Every week you have something that heats up the atmosphere and Aleandar Vucic who has no intention of backing down. This is now his responsibility: if he doesn’t accept the demands for free elections, he will be the most responsible one,” Zelenovic concluded.

The chairman of the opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS), Mayor of Sabac, Nebojsa Zelenovic said that the photos published on little known Embargo pro-regime web portal, showing his departure to German Embassy for a meeting were a direct proof that he was illegally followed and tapped at the order of the regime.

Zelenovic emphasized in the report that the web portal on which the photos were published was “an asset of the regime’s propaganda under direct control of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic”. He asked Serbian President what would be the problem if he had a meeting in the German Embassy and whether German Chancellor Angela Merkel was not Vucic’s friend anymore, as he used to brag until recently. “You have been deceiving the public for years that German Toennies company would invest billions of Euros in pig breeding in Serbia that would be used to feed half of the world. You deceived the public that the German Mercedes would produce buses, first at FAP in Priboj, and then, out of nowhere, you added them to Ikarbus in Belgrade”, Zelenovic stated.

In an open letter to Vucic, Zelenovic also said that until a few weeks ago, Serbian President was deceiving the public that German Volkswagen would open a factory in Serbia and that Serbia would become one of the largest car producers in Europe. “I went to a meeting with the German partners to discuss, among other things, the poor state of democracy in Serbia. Did you record and photograph this conversation also, mister President”, Zelenovic asked. “Once again I point out for you that the misuse of security services and state institutions in the battle against political opponents is very dangerous because it is not only a heavy crime, but it could also jeopardize the foundations of democratic order and introduces the country into a dangerous crisis and conflicts of unseen volume. You will be personally responsible if you cause a misfortune in Serbia out of fear of losing the power”, Zelenovic said to Serbian President.

Zelenovic claimed that he had been followed and tapped since September 2018, including every conversation, meeting, movement of representatives of one part of the opposition and that his safety was in danger. He added that the regime was completely revealing its true nature and showing that they ruled with the darkest methods of police state in which anyone with a different opinion was their enemy and a legitimate target.

Zelenovic stated that the photos of his departure to German Embassy were clearly made from the great height and published on Embargo web portal “with extremely inappropriate comments that damage the relations between the two countries”. “This is a clear and unambiguous proof that I was illegally followed and tapped by the regime, but also that the allegations of the leaders of Alliance for Serbia that we were under a constant surveillance of security services were completely true”.

Embargo: “Zelenovic went to the embassy for instructions”: Together with the photos of the opposition leader Zelenovic crossing the street somewhere in Belgrade, close to the German Embassy, a pro-regime Embargo web portal also published a text in which they accused Zelenovic of going there in order to get “instructions to work against his own state”. “Zelenovic visited the German Embassy incognito, in order to avoid being noticed, he arrived to the embassy at 11:30h and stayed there for 45 minutes”, the foolish text at Embargo web portal stated. “Due to everyday protests held in Sabac, it is no wonder that Zelenovic has been visiting the German Embassy, because immediately after that he has published an announcement against the President of his own country. Obviously, Zelenovic did not know how to put it together, so he went to the embassy to pick it up from someone else”, it was concluded in the text that accompanied the photos taken most probably with the aid of a drone.

The chairman of Alliance for Serbia (SzS) Nebojsa Zelenovic said on Friday that it was unheard of anywhere in the world, except in Serbia, that the President of a state was reading the documents of security services labeled as state secret on a tabloid TV station.

“Vucic once again proved that by breaching the Constitution and laws, he was misusing the whole security department every day in order to preserve his non-democratic rule”, Zelenovic emphasized.

He added that the public should ask what would Vucic be prepared if he would leave the power. “Vucic’s manipulation with state secrets, following and tapping, is calculated to mask following and tapping of the opposition leaders, but also his close associates, for which he has been accused by his political father Vojislav Seselj. There is no and cannot be a democratic and decent state in which security services are not taking care of security of the country, but are used as an instrument for political conflicts”, the chairman of SzS Nebojsa Zelenovic concluded.
