Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and his ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) have claimed a resounding victory in the snap parliamentary and local elections held on Sunday.

According to the preliminary results, Vucic won 60 percent of the presidential vote, while his party secured 43 percent of the parliamentary seats, enough to form a coalition government with its allies. The main opposition coalition, Serbia Against Violence, came second with 19 percent of the presidential vote and 14 percent of the parliamentary seats.

The elections were marred by allegations of irregularities, violence and a boycott by some opposition parties, who accused Vucic of authoritarianism, corruption and media manipulation.
