Full election results on January 3 handed Serbia’s ruling party a major victory in the parliamentary and local votes held on December 17, amid demonstrations that triggered thousands to protest alleged fraud. President Aleksandar Vucic’s Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) won 46.75 percent of ballots, while the main opposition Serbia Against Violence (SPN) secured 23.66 percent, according to the country’s electoral commission. Opposition groups have contested the results, and SPN has demanded an international independent investigation by the European Union. Among other alleged irregularities, they claimed that ethnic Serb voters from neighboring Bosnia were bused in to cast ballots illegally.
