The political crisis in Serbia
The new political crisis that is unfolding in Serbia has intensified because of the announcement of the results of the parliamentary elections on April 24th, after a night of a recounts by the National Electoral Commission (RIK) at the disputed 99 sites. According to the RIK in Parliament, the second most important patriotic opposition bloc after the Radical Party, the Democratic Party of Serbia (DPS) and the "Dveri" movement will no longer be in Parliament. According to the RIK coalition, they have only 4.99% of the vote and thus fall short of the five percent barrier. The final election results will be announced on May 4th when a second vote will be held at the 15 polling stations where election results were annulled. However, these 15 sites are unlikely to change the overall balance of the country.
