Last wednesday, I was in the campaign bus of former serbian president, and now candidate, Boris Tadić — with only one other foreign journalist, another french photographer.
We are now just before the second round, which will take place on May 20th, and where Tadić will face the nationalist candidate Tomislav Nikolić.
Boris Tadić is already president for 8 years now, and tries to keep on representing the western side of Serbia while speaking about economics, democracy, and EU.
Spending a day with Tadić and his campaign team, it’s a bit like follow an american actor playing the role of a balkanic president — rock music, coloured shirts, flags and political groupies, under the serbian spring sun.
Until 2003, Boris Tadić was teaching political advertising at the Faculty of Drama at the University of Belgrade.
