On May 6, Serbian citizens will cast their vote for the next president. Due to President Tadić’s voluntary resignation on April 5, 10 months ahead of the expiration of his term, the presidential election will now take place on the same day as scheduled parliamentary, provincial and local elections.

Political platforms and campaigns have been focused on social issues and economic development. With no one candidate leading the polls, the race will be tight and closely watched, with a second round run-off a near certainty.

  • What is the new unified voter registry in use for the May 6 election?
