A written statement said that she did not agree to re-schedule the Belgrade City elections claiming that would be in violation of the constitution. Brnabic called for a new meeting on Wednesday.

Brnabic said the opposition and civil society organizations proposed ways to implement ODIHR recommendations efficiently, transparently and inclusively as well on the forming and activities of a commission to review the voter registry.
According to her, the opposition and NGOs proposed forming a parliamentary working body or commission to monitor the implementation of ODIHR recommendations and draft necessary laws; changes to relevant laws on residence registration with a 12-month period after change of residence when voters would not be allowed to turn out for elections; a stop to campaigning for the June 2 Belgrade elections; re-scheduling local elections for a date in September or October; and forming a commission to review the voter registry.

Brnabic said that all caucuses agree in principle that the ODIHR recommendations should be implemented with some reservations about individual recommendations. She added that she agrees to the waiting period for voters who change residence but said that a decision about the duration of that period should be taken in line with best international practices and recommendations by relevant institutions such as the Venice Commission.

She expressed readiness to discuss a re-scheduling of local elections with the exception of the Belgrade elections.

Brnabic voiced the conviction that the proposed working bodies and commissions would be formed soon.
