Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic claimed he had won presidential election held in Serbia on Sunday.

BELGRADE (Sputnik) – The news comes as the Central Election Commission said earlier in the day that Vucic is winning the presidential election with 59.79 percent of votes after processing of more than 10 percent of the ballots.

“It was important that the victory had to be crystal-clear. So that nobody could think something. The margin is significant,” Vucic said addressing to his supporters in Belgrade.
