Serbian Prime Minister Aleksander Vucic called in January 2016 a snap election, in a move which was seen as a way of consolidating his leadership. Mr Vucic argued that he needed a fresh mandate to further push for accession talks with the European Union.

Although his Serbian Progressive Party won the last election in 2014 with a landslide, there had been rumours of internal divisions as Mr Vucic tried to carry out economic reforms.
