Serbia holds parliamentary elections on 21 June 2020 amidst protests of the fragmented opposition. Serbia’s president Aleksandar Vučić and his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) control most state institutions and country’s media. SNS is expected to win the elections.

On the international arena, Vučić claims to lead his country towards the EU membership, while flirting with Moscow and Beijing.
