About the election Short description of the context and results of the election.
The Together we can do everything coalition (led by President Aleksandar Vučić’s Serbian Progressive Party, SNS) and its coalition partner, Ivica Dačić ¬– Prime Minister of Serbia (led by Speaker Ivica Dačić’s Socialist Party of Serbia, SPS) won a majority in the 250-member National Assembly, winning a total of 151 seats (see note 1). Marinika Tepić – United for Serbia’s Victory, an opposition coalition, won 38 seats. The 2022 elections were held more than two years earlier than constitutionally required, in parallel with the presidential elections. Mr. Vučić was re-elected in the presidential elections, defeating, amongst others, Mr. Zdravko Ponoš of United for Serbia’s Victory.

Due to several repeated elections (see note 1), the final results for the parliamentary elections were announced on 5 July, three months after the initial election.

During election campaigning, the major parties focused on measures to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and organized crime. The government ran on its record, citing high GDP growth (7.4%) in 2021 – the highest in Europe. The opposition accused the government of corruption. The 2022 elections were held against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine that started in February. Although the Serbian government supported the UN declaration condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine, President Vučić said Serbia would try to “preserve friendly and partnership relations in many areas with the Russian Federation”.

Note 1:
The SNS, in power since 2012, led the Aleksandar Vučić – For our children coalition in the previous elections held in 2020. It took 188 seats. Also in 2020, the SPS led the coalitions Ivica Dačić – Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) and United Serbia (JS) – Dragan Marković Palma. It took 32 seats. Most opposition parties boycotted the 2020 elections, claiming the conditions were not fair. The majority of them participated in the 2022 elections following four-month talks that led to better conditions, including an increase in the opposition's access to public broadcasters.

Note 2:
Elections were repeated at 54 polling stations on 16 April 2022 and one polling station on 28 April, 27 May, and 23 and 30 June 2022. They concern a village on Serbia's border with Kosovo where voting was cancelled three times due to irregularities, and once because of disagreements and a bomb alert.

The final results of the April 2022 elections were announced on 5 July and the newly elected National Assembly held its first session on 1 August. Serbia was excluded from the Monthly ranking of women in national parliaments (https://data.ipu.org/women-ranking) until July 2022. The number of women was retrospectively added in August 2022.
