Serbia’s divided government will muddle through

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

Significance

SNS and SPS are fighting behind the scenes on several issues, notably on whether Serbia should continue to balance between Russia and Western governments or move closer to Moscow.

Impacts

  • President Vucic needs SPS to share responsibility for unpopular foreign policy decisions.
  • Negotiations with Kosovo leave the government little room for dealing with controversial domestic matters.
  • Talk of early elections will divert attention from politically sensitive issues and scandals.
