BELGRADE – During her visit to Belgrade on Friday, Federica Mogherini met opposition leaders in Serbia – Boris Tadić, president of the Social Democratic Party, Dragan Šutanovac, president of Democratic Party, and potential presidential candidates –  Saša Radulović, president of the „Enough is Enough“ movement and Saša Janković.

As Janković stated after the meeting, Mogherini was informed that Serbia is not on a right path and that it is not preserving the European values – the rule of law, security or standard of living.

Janković also said that Mogherini condemns problems regarding the rule of law and freedom of the media and that she cannot understand why such a critics are not reaching the public. Although the public opinion may perceive that Vučić is guarded by the EU, that cannot be further from the truth.

Tadić as well stated that the EU has complaints concerning freedom of the media, the rule of law and reform of the judicial system, adding that at the moment Serbia is going through the collapse of democracy.

Movement ’Enough is enough’ did not show up in today’s Parliamentary session, where Mogherini held her speech.

The potential presidential candidate Radulović said that on the meeting, the movement ’Enough is enough’ was criticised for not being present on the previous Parliamentary Session on which Mogherini held her speech.

He stated that in the time when Parliament is suspended it is unacceptable to hold special sessions with speeches which are practically part of the election campaign, adding that movement will not participate in suspension of democracy.
