Ponos forms new political organization


Retired General Zdravko Ponos has set up a new political organization which will be formally presented to the public on Wednesday.

Ponos ran for president at the April 3 elections as the candidate backed by a large part of the opposition rallied under the name United for Serbia’s Victory. He was a senior member of Vuk Jeremic’s People’s Party (NS) which he left to set out on his own.

The retired general’s new political organization has been named Serbia Center or SRCE (heart in Serbia) for short.

Ponos wrote on social media in mid-June that he and his associates decided to form a new political organization “relying on the values and political stands I advocated during the presidential campaign”.
