Boško Obradović

Statement

Boško Obradović is the presidential candidate for the parliamentary political party Dveri (the old Serbian word for "Gates"). Dveri was originally a movement started at the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade by students of the Serbian language, and only became a political party in 2015.

In 2016, they managed to enter Parliament together with the Demokratska stranka Srbije (Democratic Party of Serbia), a right-wing party whose leader was the former Prime minister Vojislav Koštunica, now retired from politics.

Dveri and Boško Obradović consider themselves close to Serbian Orthodox Church and pride themselves in being "family oriented". Their programme proposes a Ministry for the Family, in order to encourage Serbia to rebuild its population. They also openly oppose gay pride marches and abortion.

In early March, when the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini visited the Serbian Parliament, Obradović and his colleagues held placards declaring that "Serbia doesn't trust Brussels". He strongly opposes NATO and European integration, votes against the Brussels agreement on the Kosovo issue and argues for better relations with Russian Federation.
