Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić has won Serbias presidential election in the first round, nearly complete official results showed yesterday (3 April). The EU said his election was a vote of confidence showing that the people of Serbia fully endorse the EU path.
Vučić won about 55% of Sundays vote, clearing the 50% threshold required to win in the first round, according to results released by the electoral commission based on more than 90% of polling stations.
Two obstacles for EU membership talks, started in 2014, seem to have been removed.
Vučićs predecessor Tomislav Nikolić, a pro-Russian member of Vučićs own Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), is likely to retire from political life.
And ultranationalist Vojislav eelj, who was burning European flags to show his opposition to Serbias EU bid, won less than 5% of the vote.

Wow, losing the world’s fifth/sixth-largest economy, and compensating that by adding in some more dirt-poor eastern European nations. I can tell the Union is booming.
I’m rather surprised they gave in after what NATO did to them. Guess all those Soros propaganda bucks finally paid off.
Their prior leaders were a disaster for Serbia.
With England going away EU needs to add as many new entities to loot as possible to keep the money rolling in to the Elite and to Soros.
The EU is no different then every past German socialist experience. All have led to failure. When East Germany basically collapsed I really hoped those who had lived under government control would realize that freedom and hard work were the answer. Yes, I saw some Germans digging through garbage cans in 57-60 while others were still rebuilding areas of cities not yet repaired from the bombs. In 67-70 during visits to Germany I saw no one in trash cans and the economy was flourishing. During Christmas 1969 I wanted to buy a new Mercedes 280 SL before year end as the mark was going up to under 4 a dollar. The mark kept going up. Now you have no Democracy. You have Gov this and that. The EU has Muslim problems galore.
