BELGRADE, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Leader of the Serbian progressive party Aleksandar Vicuc said that his party achieved best results in the 25-year-long parliamentary history, with 40 parliamentary seats more than needed to form government by themselves.
According to the preliminary results of the parliamentary elections on Sunday published by the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), they won 49,3 percent of votes, which is around 160 places in the parliament of 250 seats.
"We are ready to talk with everyone and hear their ideas about what we could achieve together for the benefit of Serbia," Vucic said, explaining that he is ready to cooperate with opponent parties if they show willingness to "work seriously."
At a press conference at Progressive's headquarters, Vucic said that Serbia will continue its EU path and tighten cooperation with Russia, United States and China as well as the fight against corruption.
"The biggest task is to fight unemployment, and I promise that there will be a dramatic change in that area at the half of our next mandate," Vucic said.
"From this moment on," he said, "we are no longer fighting for success at the next election but for the future generations."
