Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic say there are “no reasons of any kind” to hold early parliamentary elections in Serbia.
Vucic made this statement on Monday for Serbia’s state broadcaster RTS.
On Sunday, Belgrade-based media reported they learned the country would not hold early parliamentary elections in April, along with the presidential vote.
According to the daily Blic, Vucic, who is the leader of the ruling SNS and its presidential candidate, was to make an announcement to this effect on Monday, while the date for the presidential elections would be announced “in the coming days.”
Sputnik said that the SNS leader decided the situation in the country would be “more stable” if only the presidential elections are held.
The ruling coalition, led by the SNS, has been divided over whether to schedule parliamentary elections this year.
SPS leader and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said earlier that he spoke with Vucic and that they concluded Serbia had political stability, and did not need new parliamentary elections.
Dacic also said that Vucic would announce his decision on Monday.
