SPS leader: There would be no status without us
BELGRADE -- Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) leader Ivica Dačić says Serbia never would have gotten the EU candidate status if his party had supported someone else in 2008.
At a session of the European Integrations Committee, which was attended by Serbian President Boris Tadić, Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković and all the ministers, Dačić said that the election promises made on October 5, 2000 were only fulfilled after the coalition with the SPS.
“With all due respect of the president and October 5, I would like to say that you only fulfilled your pre-election promises in the coalition with the SPS,” he pointed out.
“If the SPS had decided with its coalition partners to support (Democratic Party of Serbia leader Vojislav) Koštunica and (Serb Radical Party leader Vojislav) Šešelj not a single one of you would have sat here now and Serbia would not have had the candidate status,” the SPS leader stressed.
He added that his party did not see the EU as a goal but as means that could help Serbian citizens live better.
