Tanja Fajon stated : “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was only a limited OSCE/ODIHR monitoring mission observing the elections and the European Parliament could not send any mission. According to the local observers, election irregularities were recorded at five percent of polling stations, which is higher than the percentage of irregularities in the 2016 parliamentary and 2017 presidential elections. The turnout has also been considerably lower than 4 years ago, staying below 50%, despite pressure by the government to participate” “As one of EP facilitators of the Inter-Party Dialogue with the Serbian Parliament on electoral conditions, I regret to say that despite our efforts, the conditions were not sufficient for a main part of the opposition to participate in the elections. We have to find new methods to include them in the next round of our Inter-Party Dialogue” External link

Tanja Fajon said : “The spread of fake news goes hand-in-hand with the increase in hate speech online. With people getting information solely from those that share similar beliefs or political viewpoints, we are getting a deepening separation and greater vitriol between opposing sides of the political debate. This combined with the anonymity of posting online is causing a huge increase in violent, racist and sexist abuse online. Social media companies must do more to tackle this type of hate speech– removing illegal content and shutting down accounts of those responsible. We must protect free speech but that does not mean allowing threats or abuse to spread” External link

Urgent reforms are needed. Serbia and Kosovo need to revive the dialogue on normalisation of the relations between the countries and bring fresh and sincere energy into the process.

Tanja Fajon said : “The spread of fake news goes hand-in-hand with the increase in hate speech online. With people getting information solely from those that share similar beliefs or political viewpoints, we are getting a deepening separation and greater vitriol between opposing sides of the political debate. This combined with the anonymity of posting online is causing a huge increase in violent, racist and sexist abuse online. Social media companies must do more to tackle this type of hate speech– removing illegal content and shutting down accounts of those responsible. We must protect free speech but that does not mean allowing threats or abuse to spread” External link

Tanja Fajon added : "It is absolutely vital for both the Western Balkans and the EU that enlargement continues. Without clear commitment on both sides, we fear dangerous scenarios of destabilisation. Urgent reforms are needed. Serbia and Kosovo need to revive the dialogue on normalisation of the relations between the countries and bring fresh and sincere energy into the process. Responsible politicians need to understand that reforms are necessary for a better life for citizens, more efficient work of institutions, preventing brain drain and building a corruption-free society.
