Opposition SRS leader Vojislav Seselj says his party will start its campaign for the presidential elections on Friday, B92 reports.

Seselj on Thursday revealed that the campaign will be launched in the National Assembly, “by interrupting the address of EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Federica Mogherini.”

“It will be a verbal protest. We won’t beat her. We won’t let her speak. We’re against violence, you know,” Seselj told reporters.

“As far as people’s deputies (assembly members) from the SRS are concerned, Mogherini is unwelcome in the National Assembly. We will be expressing our protest throughout her speech. If she manages to say anything, fair play to her. We will make an effort to prevent her, and that will be the start of our campaign,” he explained.

Seselj then described Mogherini as being “an EU representative and protector of Siptar (Albanian) separatists, who has been conducting an anti-Serb policy since the beginning.”

As the Radicals (SRS) are against Serbia’s EU membership, they will express their opposition in this way as well, he added.

Mogherini, who is currently on a Balkan tour, is due to arrive here on Friday and meet with Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.
