The ANSWER to the question of who will make up the ruling majority in the coming period will be known after consultations between representatives of coalitions and parties that won seats in the Serbian Parliament in the parliamentary elections on April 3, with the President of Serbia on April 14.
The official invitations for 12 lists for talks, which will last five days, during which the minority parties first, and finally the SPS-JS, United for the Victory of Serbia and the team around the progressives, will go to the Presidency, have not yet arrived. The parties, however, are already preparing delegations, strategies and messages for Andrić’s wreath.
It is unusual for the consultations to start before the new convocation of the parliament (the constitutive session is expected between July 25 and 27), because past practice shows that the conversation with the president was held only after the session. It is speculated that this could mean that the majority will have the name of the President of the Assembly ready already on the first day of work, which previously was usually waited until the day when the new Government was voted for. Certainly, the procedure is that the party with the majority (126 MPs) informs the president about it and receives a mandate to form a team in Nemanja 11.
According to Goran Vesić, a member of the SNS Presidency, it is quite natural that the representative for the composition of the new Government of Serbia should be from among the progressives:
– The President will make his own assessment based on the discussion and will give the mandate to whoever he believes can secure a parliamentary majority, i.e. at least 126 MPs, which is necessary for the election of the government. Serbia needs a government that will work as a team and that will be ready to make difficult decisions.
MULTIPLE INVOICES TO THE MAJORITY
MATHEMATICS says that the SNS team, which won 120 deputies, needs at least six more for a majority. Among them will certainly be the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians with five mandates. Socialists have repeatedly stated that it is a natural continuation of cooperation with SNS, but that they are also ready for some different roles. In Belgrade, they already formed a government with the SNS, but the progressives said that this does not have to be reflected in the Republic. The team around the socialists has 31 mandates. “United for the Victory of Serbia” won 38 deputies, the coalition NADA 15 deputies, and “Moramo” 13. Dveri and Zavetnici will each have ten deputies, “Muftija’s Anet” three, “Together for Vojvodina” and SDA Sandžak will each have two, while one The Coalition of Dolina Albanians also has representatives.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabić should go to the meeting with the president along with several other SNS officials, as well as representatives of the coalition partners – SDPS, PUPS, PS, SNP…
As SPS president Ivica Dačić told “Novosti”, he does not yet have information on when it will be the turn of the SPS-JS coalition to talk, and he and JS first man Dragan Marković Palma will go to the consultations.
The President of Dveri, Boško Obradović, pointed out to “Novosti” that the call for consultations has not yet arrived and that “he is not sure that the talks should be conducted before the formation of the new convocation of the National Assembly”.
– Whenever the invitation arrives, we will make a statement about it and inform the public. Our message is always the same – no recognition of the fake state of Kosovo, no introduction of sanctions against Russia, support for the Republika Srpska and the domestic economy and agriculture, not foreign companies. Of course, we will always insist on supporting the family and banning the gay parade, especially this year when Belgrade should be shamed as the European capital of homosexuality – Obradović said.
GONG VLADETI JANKOVIĆ OR VEROLJUB STEVANOVIĆ
The CONSTITUTIONAL session of the new convocation of the Serbian Parliament should be chaired by Vladeta Janković from the “United for the Victory of Serbia” list, as the oldest member of parliament at 82 years old. He will be assisted in his work by the youngest MPs from the four electoral lists that received the largest number of mandates. In this case, the progressives, “United”, SPS-JS and NADA. However, who will be the temporary president of the parliament until the election of the permanent one is still questionable, because Janković recently refused to preside over the first session of the Belgrade City Assembly. Even though he was the oldest member of the council, he did not take up his duties, pointing out that it was a “gesture of protest on behalf of all those who trusted him”. As a rule, if Janković does not accept to sit in the chairman’s place, that honor will be given to the next oldest member of parliament, Veroljub Stevanović (76), from the NADA coalition. The first session in the previous convocation was chaired by Smilja Tišma (91) from the Socialist electoral list. At the constitutive session, in addition to verifying the mandates of deputies, the President of the Assembly, the deputy and the general secretary are elected. M.St.
The president of the New Democratic Party of Serbia, Miloš Jovanović, emphasized the expectation that the Assembly will be constituted by the end of July and says that there were no discussions with his NADA coalition about possible cooperation with the opposition parties in the new convocation of the parliament.
Representatives of “United for the Victory of Serbia” and “Moramo” will comment on the consultations when they receive invitations. Biljana Stojković, the presidential candidate in front of the “Moramo” team, previously said that she would not talk to Vučić, and Aleksandar Jovanović Đuta said that he would only do so with a live broadcast.
According to the legal procedure, July 15 is the deadline for the Republican Electoral Commission to award certificates of mandate to all MPs. The last date for holding the constituent session is August 4. From the day of the first gathering of deputies and the constitution of the new convocation, a deadline of 90 days runs for the formation of the Government.
