The ruling coalition in Serbia is seriously considering the option of regular local elections being held on June 2, when the Belgrade elections are held, and the calling of elections would be preceded by an amendment to the Law on Local Elections, N1 learns from a source close to the top of the Government.

According to N1’s source, the top of the Government is one step away from accepting the opposition’s request made on April 3 that all local elections be held on the same day. This, he added, would be made possible by amending Article 35, so that the elections could be announced no earlier than 150 days instead of the current 120 days.

This would allow regular local elections in 88 cities and municipalities, including 17 Belgrade municipalities, to be held on June 2, at the same time as voting for councillors of the Belgrade City Assembly.

Local elections in Serbia must be announced no later than 45 days before the day of holding, in this case by April 18, and the condition for this is that the members of the National Assembly have previously voted on the changes to the law.

One of the leaders of the coalition “Serbia against violence,” Miroslav Aleksic, pointed out after the second meeting with representatives of the authorities in the Serbian Parliament that all local elections can be held on the same day by amending Article 35 of the Law on Local Elections. This, according to Aleksic, would create the conditions for other local elections to be held on June 2, when the elections for councillors of the Belgrade Parliament have already been announced.
