He claims that the evidence will eliminate the Democratic Party (DS) from political life.

“We basically won everywhere, somewhere they stole more, and somewhere less,” he said.

“What I can demonstrate to you can apply to 9,000 polling stations,” Nikolić told reporters after a session of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) Main Board on Wednesday.

He added that he had informed the members of the Main Board that if he won the presidential election, he would resign from all positions in the party, including that of party president.

“I told them to prepare for it because even though the Serbian Progressive Party is my child, I wish to prove that I want to help all children in Serbia and the party should be prepared to work without me,” Nikolić noted.

He added that he had to resign from the party positions if he was elected president according to the Constitution.

“If Tadić could trample the Constitution, I can not,” he stressed.

He said that he would talk with Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS) leader Vojislav Koštunica on his support in the second round of presidential elections on Thursday.
