Serbia is governed by a 10-party coalition that took over in 2008, united around EU integration and led by Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic and President Boris Tadic. The next general election is scheduled for 2012 but opposition party is making moves and asking for an early election.
Serbia in 2011
- On February 5, 2011, the largest opposition party in Serbia, the Serbian Progressive Party, New Serbia (NS), Movement of Socialists and Power of Serbia Movement along with about 55,000 supporters rallied in front of the Serbain Parliament at Belgrade demanding an early election. The party accused the Government of failings including corruption, incompetence and economic mismanagement, and gave it two months to call an early vote or face daily street protests. SNS leader Tomislav Nikolic sets a two-month deadline warning of a nonviolent resistance protest from the same place where they gathered.
