64% of Serbians polled vote for Monarchy over Republic by Michael Roberts - 09.05.2011

 

Serbian citizens are clearly supporting switching from a Republic to a Constitutional Monarchy based on a recent poll shown by popular Serbian newspaper Blic. An outstanding 64% chose Monarchy over Republic. The question was simple… What do you support, Republic or Monarchy and the results very revealing.

“Monarchy supporters are claiming that the Monarchy has a greater support, among the people, more than we know, think, speak or write in public. Writer Dušan Kovačević, who is a member of the Crown Council in Belgrade, said in a statement to "Flash”  that despite this, there is no political party that could articulate with people’s opinion towards Monarchy.”

One of the biggest voices for Constitutional Monarchy in Serbia is the Association of the Kingdom of Serbia with tens and thousands of members and over 50 communities throughout Serbia. The Association is spreading the word, of the benefits of Constitutional Monarchy in Serbia, through a grass root campaign. The efforts include donating their time for humanitarian causes.  http://www.kraljevinasrbija.com/ their website states that "A Constitutional Monarchy is the only realsolution and a safe path for the salvation of Serbia and is based equally onthe past and the future."  They are asking for Serbians all over the world to sign up to the Association to bring Constitutional Monarchy in Serbia.

The head of the Royal Family in Serbia is the well-known and well respected, Crown Prince Alexander II of Serbia. He was recently interviewed on many television stations worldwide during Their Royal Highnesses attendance at the Royal Wedding of Prince William. Crown Prince Alexander is the first godson of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Our Crown Prince has brought much luck and good fortune to Serbia. Through his efforts inbringing investors in the country and more importantly spreading the word aboutour beautiful country worldwide, Serbia has benefited tremendously. His wife, Crown Princess Katherine, has saved thousands of lives in the country and has improved the overall health. This is what Serbia needs the most- a true father and mother of our country” says Zorica, a young resident of Belgrade.

HRH Crown Prince Alexander has always been a very ardent defender of democracy and human rights. In 1989, he took a very active role in helping his people shake off the legacyof decades of dictatorship and the regime. During the next decade the Crown Prince Alexander conducted numerous meetings and maintained constant contact with the democratic opposition and democrats throughout the former Yugoslavia.In November 1999, Crown Prince Alexander convened a large conference in Budapest for the representatives of the Democratic Opposition in Serbia.

Another symposium followed in Bosnia in January 2000 and in April 2000 the Crown Prince convened a large conference of key opposition leaders in Athens. Following theAthens conference the Crown Prince and leaders of the opposition went to a symposium at Harvard Kennedy School of Government. These meetings led to the successful election victory of Serbia’s democratic opposition in September ofthat year. Crown Prince Alexander has been a tireless contributor in the process of co-operation and unity amongst the democratic political parties to make his homeland a great democracy for all citizens regardless of political belief, religion or ethnic origin.

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess (http://www.royalfamily.org/ ) are currently inNew York for the Prince’s Ball charity for which the funds will contribute directly to mothers and children’s welfare in Serbia.

The prime ministers of Serbia and its breakaway territory of Kosovo meet for the first time at EU-brokered talks in Brussels.

 

Baroness Ashton's office said both leaders had undertaken to work together to normalise relations.

Serbia, which lost control of Kosovo after a war in 1999, does not accept its independence.

Serbia swears in new government

Serbia swears in new government (bbc)

 

A new coalition government dominated by nationalists and socialists and led by an ally of the late Slobodan Milosevic has been sworn in in Serbia.

Ivica Dacic, a former spokesman for Milosevic, said Serbia wanted peaceful reconciliation with its neighbours.

He also promised to tackle the "very difficult" economic situation by seeking foreign investment.

The reformers who ousted Milosevic 12 years ago are largely now back in opposition after years in power.

 

 

 

The new authorities in Serbia contain many faces which seemed to have gone for good 12 years ago, when Slobodan Milosevic's Socialist government was toppled by demonstrations, in the wake of an election in which they refused to acknowledge defeat.

The Socialists are now back at the top, coming a good enough third in the May elections to play the role of kingmaker. The single biggest party, the Progressives, are content with a selection of key ministries and the post of president.

The third party in the coalition is the United Regions of Serbia - containing the last traces in power of the broad coalition of parties which ended Milosevic's rule in 2000.

The new government's first priority will be to tackle Serbia's burgeoning economic problems. Despite their sometimes nationalist rhetoric, and fears of a resurgent Serbia among some of their neighbours, their foreign policy is expected to change little from that of the previous, Democratic Party-led government.

Serbia result could strengthen stability

New Serbian leader combines change of style with continuity

 

Tomislav Nikolic's defeat of Boris Tadic, who has held the Serbian presidency for the past eight years, is a second heavy blow for Mr Tadic's Democratic Party, after its poor showing in parliamentary elections earlier this month.

The Democratic Party has dominated Serbian politics since it led an opposition alliance to overthrow Slobodan Milosevic in October 2000.

But now, the voters have chosen to punish the Democrats, and Boris Tadic personally, for the poor state of the Serbian economy, and a widely held public perception that corruption is rife.

In the parliamentary election, the Democrats won only 23%.

Tomislav Nikolic, a 60-year-old populist who rose to prominence as a radical nationalist, comes across as a smiling, grandfatherly figure, a man who enjoys making plum brandy and walking in the woods in the Serbian heartlands.

Whatever else, this result will mean a change in style at the top of Serbian politics.

Boris Tadic was a suave, English-speaking leader who turned the nominally figurehead position of president into the real power in the land - largely with a series of relatively weak prime ministers.

New kingmakers

But the strong showing of the Serbian Socialist Party two weeks ago in the parliamentary election - they came third to Mr Nikolic's Progressive Party and Mr Tadic's Democrats - will make them kingmakers in the next government.

Voters in Serbia go to the polls shortly to elect a president, with a choice between reformist Boris Tadic and nationalist Tomislav Nikolic.

Mr Tadic, who has already served two terms in office, has portrayed the poll as a referendum on EU membership.

Mr Nikolic says he also supports the EU bid but not at any cost.

 

 

Serbia is plagued by unemployment of 24% and foreign debt of 24bn euros (£19.5bn; $31.5bn).
