Belgrade pro-regime daily publishes list of Vucic supporters


A Belgrade pro-regime daily published a list of 2,000 public figures it said lent their support to the election ticket headed by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

Vecernje Novosti daily published the list of athletes (including NBA player Nikola Jokic, tennis player Janko Tipsarevic and national football team coach Dragan Stojkovic Piksi), academics, doctors, film directors and actors, folk singers and anchors on pro-regime TV stations.

Speaking on the pro-regime TV Pink earlier on Friday, Vucic mentioned several of the names on the list to thank them for their support, adding that they are people who are not afraid of witchhunts and harrasement.
