(ANSAmed) – BELGRADE, JANUARY 17 – In Serbia, the justice reform submitted yesterday to a popular referendum was approved with 59.71% of the vote, compared to 39.26% of the voters who spoke out against it. This was reported today by the electoral commission, based on the counting of 98.79% of the ballot papers. It was pointed out that these are not yet definitive results, even if it is believed that there will be no significant deviations.

The turnout was 30.65% of those eligible, just over 6.5 million. The president of the electoral commission Vladimir Dimitroevic said he had no news of serious irregularities in the electoral process, as had instead been denounced yesterday evening by members of the opposition. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic already yesterday evening spoke of a clear success of the referendum, underlining the importance of the constitutional amendments approved by citizens, aimed at giving full autonomy to the judiciary, removing it from the influence of politics, and thus strengthening the process of democratization and the rule of law in the Balkan country engaged in EU accession negotiations.
