Serbian Progressive Party
Ljubljana – The Credentials and Privileges Commission proposed that the National Assembly appoint to the programme council and supervisory board of public broadcaster RTV Slovenija five candidates each who had been proposed by the coalition, the Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS) and the opposition National Party (SNS) much to the chagrin of the centre-left opposition.
In Serbia, independent journalism still targeted
Media freedom remains a dilemma affecting the lives and work of hundreds of journalists in Serbia. Smear campaigns, online threats and other attempts to demonise independent media outlets are a consistent trend and a grim reality in Serbia's digital environment.
The meeting is being held at the headquarters of the Progressives in New Belgrade, and the meeting, in addition to SNS and SPS leaders, is attended by SNS Vice President Milos Vucevic, SNS Executive Board President Darko Glisic, SNS Main Board Vice President Aleksandar Sapic, SPS CSO President Aleksandar Antic.
Long notorious for his violent behaviour, Belivuk nevertheless spent relatively little time behind bars, a fact some have ascribed to the documented connections between his crime gang and state officials of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party, SNS.
At the beginning of this year, Belivuk appears to have fallen out of favour.
"I proudly remember the day when the Party was founded, and I am especially proud of the results we have achieved during all these years," the announcement reads.
Vui points out that the strongest and best political organization in modern Serbia has been created, and internal changes will have to be continued in order to preserve that strength.
Serbia's Commissioner for Information of Public Importance has ordered the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Belgrade to review BIRN's request for information on the death of lawyer Vladimir Cvijan, a former associate of the two Serbian presidents.
Cvijan was found dead three years ago, but the public was only notified about his death in March this year.
The mayor of the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad, Milos Vucevic, a senior official in Serbia's ruling Serbian Progressive Party, SNS, will file an as yet unnamed criminal charge on Tuesday against President Aleksandar Vucic, the party announced on Monday - with a view to clearing the President's reputation and exposing the "mafia octopus" that the mayor says has Vucic in its sights.
