NOVI SAD -- League of Social Democrats of Vojvodina (LSV) leader Nenad Čanak says the Constitutional Court's decision will cause tensions and a “hot autumn in Vojvodina”.

He told Novi Sad-based daily Dnevnik that the Constitutional Court’s decision to declare parts of the Law on Establishing Jurisdiction of Vojvodina unconstitutional had put Serbia in a difficult position and that the only way out of it was to make emergency changes to the Constitution.
According to Čanak, the changes should respect the reality, “complexness of Serbia as a state” and allow decentralization.

“All decisions of the Constitutional Court have in fact once again showed that the current elite in Belgrade does not understand Serbia or its historical needs and it will be absolutely responsible for everything that will happen,” he was quoted as saying.

The LSV leader stressed that every attempt to topple Vojvodina’s institutions could easily turn into a serious international political problem and warned that the new Serbian government was being carefully monitored by the international community which was looking for any sign that could mean the return to the 90s.

“Therefore, any violence against Vojvodina would cause big problems. On the other hand, if the Constitutional Court’s decision are ignored, regardless of the fact that I think that the Constitution is a product of unacceptable political bargains, a field for actions of the executive power will be wide open, so this is an extremely dangerous situation,” Čanak concluded.
