Serbia votes with PM calling for European future

0

BELGRADE: Serbians began voting Sunday in a general election that is likely to return pro-European Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic to power, but also give a voice in Parliament to the pro-Russian far-right. While Vucic’s nominally conservative Serbian Progressive Party is projected to win about half of the votes, ultra-nationalists who want the Balkan country to deepen its alliance with Russia, instead of Europe, are also expected to win seats. With the early election marking Serbia’s third in four years, voters in the country of 7 million people appeared unenthusiastic as they stood in line at polling stations, which opened at 7 a.m. (0500 GMT).
