Opposition members of parliament in Serbia have set up a tent in front of the Serbian assembly and have gone on hunger strike. Bosko Obradovic and Ivan Kostic, who belong to the Dveri party, a far-right party, have demanded a postponement of the general elections, which are scheduled to take place on June 21, by 6 months and the formation of a provisional government of technocrats.
Obradovic, who’s one of the leaders of the radical opposition, says the hunger strike and the protests are being held to oppose the control of media by the country’s president, Aleksandar Vucic. Another reason for this form of protest also relates to the fact that authorities in Belgrade did not react following the arrest of several Orthodox priests in Montenegro.
A few days ago there violent protests in front of the country’s parliament, as the crowds of demonstrators were attempting to enter the parliament’s building. TemA
