Incumbent Prime Minister of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic has won the Serbian Presidential election, and with over 50% of the votes, will avoid a run-off.
Vucic campaigned on closer relations with the European Union, while at the same time keeping relations close with Russia, a country with which Serbia shares values and religion, and which has long had influence over the country.
Vucic has drawn criticism for his campaign, however, with many seeing it as an attempt to consolidate his power over the country. Although the role of President is largely ceremonial, he is expected to retain a large amount of influence and control over his party in parliament.
His closest opponent, Sasa Jankovic, was expected to receive 14% of the vote.
