Serbia held a presidential election on 2 April, with Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić projected to have won the contest in the first round. We asked some of our contributors for their response to the election, what the result means for Vučić, and where it leaves the country moving forward. Dimitar Bechev: “Vučić’s election paves the way to the consolidation of a one-man regime in Serbia” Eric Gordy: “The election was over before it began“ Sonja Avlijaš and Abel Bojar: “The impact of ‘foreign intervention’ should not be overemphasised“ Tena Prelec: “Voters are split between two distinct groups: pro- and anti-Vučić“ Marko Kmezić: “Democracy has barely taken root in Serbia“ Slobodan Tomić: “The opposition failed to rally around a single contender“
