    By JOVANA GEC, Associated Press BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia's president on Monday called for swift resumption of European Union-mediated talks on Kosovo after bolstering his hold on power at home in an overwhelming election victory for his governing right-wing party. A preliminary official vote count of Sunday's parliamentary election in Serbia showed that President Aleksandar Vucic’s Serbian Progressive Party won around 61% of the vote, followed by his ally, the Socialists, with around 10%. Election officials said turnout was 50.32%. A partial boycott of the vote, by the main opposition parties who said Vucic unfairly dominated the state-run media, helped pave the way for Vucic’s Progressives to control about 190 seats in the 250-member assembly. Vucic declared the party's victory as “historic." International observers from the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights said in a statement that “the election was characterized by intense political polarization, amidst a boycott by a considerable section of the opposition." “The Serbian authorities organized the elections efficiently in difficult circumstances, but voters were left under-informed and frustrated by the opposition’s lack of...
    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Five Red Star Belgrade players have tested positive for the coronavirus, the Serbian soccer club said Monday. The Serbian champions said in a statement that the players — Marko Gobeljic, Njegos Petrovic, Dusan Jovancic, Marko Konatar and Branko Jovicic — are feeling fine and remain in isolation.

No other players or staff have tested positive so far. ___ More...
    The ruling populists in Serbia seemed on their way to taking hold in power in Sunday’s parliamentary elections, held amid concerns over the spread of the coronavirus in the Balkan country and with a partial boycott of the opposition. Almost 6.6 million people could vote for the 250 members of parliament and local authorities. The elections, originally scheduled for April but postponed by the pandemic, were held when Serbia still reports dozens of new cases daily after completely lifting its strict quarantines. The president’s Serbian Progressive Party, Aleksandar Vucic, seemed poised for a shattering victory, facing little challenge from the divided opposition. His rivals attributed this to the fact that Vucic has dominated the campaign thanks to his control over the mainstream media, stifling critical voices. He has denied it. Several important opposition parties boycotted the elections, claiming that they were held without free and fair conditions and that they posed a danger to public health. But a small number of smaller parties decided to come forward, indicating that the boycott would only further relegate an already marginalized opposition. The...
