Serbia protests – level 1

01-01-2024 15:00

Serbian police arrest 38 people. These people protest against the election results on December 17. Some protesters try to get into the city hall.

Some people believe that the election is not fair. Some problems are in Belgrade. Some politicians are not happy with the results either. They ask the EU for help. They want a new and fair election.

The Serbian president thinks that western countries help the protesters. Russia supports the government, too. Some people say that the election had problems, like buying votes and unfair media.

Difficult words: election (when people vote a person for a job in politics), support (to help), media (TV, radio and internet).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What actions are being taken by different parties involved in the Serbian election controversy and how have they affected the outcome?
