Summary/Abstract: The outcome of the 6 May elections can be said to have brought about a partial political change in Serbia. Serbia has a new President – Tomislav Nikolić – but will also most likely see a government in which the Democratic Party (still headed by outgoing Boris Tadić) will be replaced with the Serbian Progressive Party (whose leader Tomislav Nikolić resigned when he was elected for president on 20 May). As talks on forming the new government are still ongoing at the time of going to press, and while the policy platform of the government is still to be announced, it can still be assumed that the next government will carry on as before with a “moderate” EU integration process and slow economic reforms primarily designed to avoid the “Greek scenario”.
