Protesters Rally Outside Offices of Pro-Government Tabloid in Belgrade


Hundreds of protesters marched on the offices of Informer, a pro-government tabloid newspaper, in Belgrade on April 24 — the latest in a string of protests following Prime Minister Alexander Vucic’s victory in presidential elections on April 2.

The protesters claim Vucic was given strong backing by both state-run and private media companies during his election campaign.

Vucic was elected president with 55 percent of the vote, and is expected to continue the country’s path towards EU integration while maintaining close ties to Russia. Although the office of president is largely a ceremonial role, demonstrators are concerned he will maintain control over government through his Serbian Progressive Party.
