Serbian President Boris Tadic said Saturday he intended to call for early elections after Belgrade got a status of candidate for European Union (EU) membership.
He said the current government was obliged to meeting membership candidature requirements before holding the elections.
He did not mention any timing about the call for elections.
Tadic, quoted by the Serbian TV, said although his government succeeded to achieving many national objectives, it failed to accelerate economic reforms.
He urged the government in Belgrade to clarify its economic strategy for the Serbian people “who aspire to improve the living condition in the country.”
The government, said Tadic, succeeded in acquiring the EU’s candidature membership status, raising wages of public sector’s employees and upgrading services of education and health.
Tadic anticipated Serbia to be full EU member within the next three years.
