Protesters March in Belgrade After Vucic Election Win


Crowds of mainly young people took to the streets of Belgrade on April 3 to protest against the victory of Aleksandar Vucic in Serbia’s presidential election the previous day.

Vucic, a conservative who had been serving as Serbia’s prime minister, claimed 55 percent of the vote, avoiding a runoff and soundly defeating the leading opposition candidate, Sasa Jankovic.

The presidential role in Serbia is largely ceremonial, but local commentators expected Vucic to retain his influence on the ruling Progressive Party through the appointment of a loyal successor as prime minister. Credit: Marion Dautry via Storyful
