BELGRADE, April 2. /TASS/. The presidential election began in Serbia at 07:00 on Sunday, where 8,523 polling stations opened to work to 20:00. The presidential election’s results should be announced within four days after the polling is over.

A total of 11 candidates are taking part in the bid for the country’s highest office. The country’s current Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic is the favorite of the election rush. Most analysts do not doubt his victory. The only thing they are arguing about is whether Vucic would gain more than 50% of the vote in the first round, or the country would face the second round.

The Republic’s Central Election Commission said more than 6.7 million people are legible to participate in the voting. The total of 1,995 local observers, and 126 representatives of 25 international organizations, election commissions and embassies will monitor the voting process.

The Serbian president is elected for a five-year term and cannot hold the office more than twice.
