MANDATES to the members of the Assembly of the City of Belgrade, from the list that managed to reach the local parliament, were officially awarded on Friday. Although the one-month deadline for constitution has begun, and the last date is June 13, some opposition parties say they are ready for new elections, while others say it is unnecessary.
As the president of the City Election Commission, Zoran Lukić, confirmed for “Novosti”, 110 councilor seats were divided according to the order from the electoral list and the number of mandates that belonged to a certain coalition.
On Friday, Deputy Mayor Goran Vesić pointed out that the city parliament will be constituted in two months at the most, but also that it is possible to do it faster, depending on whether there will be a political agreement or not:
– After that session, another deadline begins, an additional month, for the election of bodies – the mayor, deputy mayor, city council and all other bodies.
Dobrica Veselinović, in front of “Let’s not drown Belgrade”, stated that they will be ready to offer a green-left political alternative in the new elections for Belgrade, whenever it happens. On the other hand, DSS leader Milos Jovanovic, when asked about possible elections in the capital, pointed out that they are possible, but that they should not be held because “one of the opposition leaders is meeting and negotiating with the president.”
LIST about the Progressives won 48 seats, so with the Socialists and their eight seats they have a narrow majority of 56 councilors. “United for the Victory of Belgrade” will have 26 councilors, the list “Moramo” – 13, NADA – seven, while Dveri and Zavetnici have four mandates each.
