The opposition set out certain conditions for taking part in the work of the Committee on Further Reform of Electoral and Other Legislation and now, when they [conditions] have been largely accepted and when a compromise has been reached, it’s a little unserious and tragicomic that they themselves do not take part in something they requested, the leader of the Liberal Party, Mr Andrija Popović, assessed in an interview for Pobjeda, a daily.
“It seems to me that all that fuss and threats that they won’t participate in the work of the Committee were made for nothing, and serve them to justify their unprincipled and demagogic policy before the public and their voters. I think the part of the opposition has already announced they are going to take part in the future work on reforms along with the parliamentary majority and the representatives of the civil sector,” Mr Popović noted.
Commenting on the agreement between the DPS and the Democrats, he emphasized he supports any agreement if it’s going to contribute to the continuation of the reform of electoral legislation.
“The Liberal Party supports any agreement even though it’s a surprising one, like the one we have now between the DPS and the Democrats, if it’s going to contribute to the continuation of the reform of electoral legislation and dealing with the challenge we have been struggling with for years – acceptance of the forthcoming elections as the democratic and fair ones.”
Mr Popivić hopes the opposition will stop arguing with each other by autumn.
