Only days before Serbia’s presidential election, seven major newspapers have hit the stands with the same front pages: the ruling candidate’s campaign poster.

The propaganda coup on Thursday by populist Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic’s campaign team further stoked fears about the overall fairness of the Sunday vote.

The papers splash the red and blue AV logo and carry no headlines or news on the front pages.

Former Serbian President Boris Tadic said “today’s print media have revealed the real state of democracy under Vucic’s rule.”

Tadic said “we are looking at the North Korean scenario for Serbia if he wins the election.”

  1. I assume Vucic’s party bought front page space in all of those newspapers. Others could have done the same, so they should stop whining and start doing some proper campaigning!
