The elections could deepen the political crisis


“We are worried that the upcoming elections could deepen the crisis of democracy in Serbia. We fear that the number of citizens who do not see elections as a path of political change will increase and that even greater conflicts could threaten political stability in Serbia and the region”, has said today in Paris Vukosava Crnjanski, director at CRTA, while addressing the Monitoring Council of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Prime Minister Brnabić and Minister Đorđević in a public officials’ campaign


CRTA filed complaints to the Anti-Corruption Agency against Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, and Minister of labour, employment, veteran and social policy Zoran Đorđević, for violating legal provisions preventing misuse of public resources in order to promote a political party.

Citizens do not report corruption because of distrust in institutions


The number of Serbian citizens who would not report corruption due to fear of consequences and distrust in competent institutions significantly increased according to the results of a comprehensive poll “Public Opinion and Corruption” conducted by the CRTA in November 2019.
