Orientation of Serbian Domestic and Foreign Policy after the General Election (Liu Zuokui)

Author:Liu Zuokui From:Site author Update:2017-08-21 13:43:38

On 6 May 2012, the Serbian parliamentary elections were held simultaneously with provincial, local and presidential elections, with Nikolić being inaugurated as the new President of Serbia.

In domestic affairs, the new president will focus on addressing the problems of economic growth and employment, making adjustments to the austerity policy of his predecessor in favor of a moderate economic stimulus package plan. In diplomacy Serbia’s refusal to renounce its claim to Kosovo will create problems to improve its relations with Europe. The Serbian Progressive Party, Socialist Party and Serbian Democratic Party are most likely to form a ruling coalition, but its position against the independence of Kosovo will further obstruct the improvement of relations with the EU, and the situation will improve if a pro-west coalition government between the Serbian Democratic Party and Serbian Socialist Party.
