The president of the movement To Ask the Profession, Vladimir Kovacevic, stated today that the financial aid of 100 young people aged 16 to 29 is an indicator that the government is on the verge of running out of ideas and on the threshold of “the greatest populism in government in the recent history of Serbia”.
“Young people are not pensioners, and the same recipe for gaining voters only means that this government is running out of ideas and is on the verge of the greatest populism in government in the recent history of Serbia,” Kovacevic said in a written statement.
Kovacevic stated that he has been working with young people all his life and that he expects young people to take that money from the state “because they are pragmatic”, but that the attempt of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) to get closer to corrupting them as an electorate before the elections is a “pure failure”.
“The young people of Serbia have high expectations from their lives, and rightly so. The ruling party has no answer for providing the perspective to young people they expect,” he said.
He added that the financial aid was “pouring from the hollow into the empty” and that it was a “distribution of borrowed money that all citizens will return for decades after the SNS leaves power.”
