Sports journalist Saša Mikić was physically attacked on election day at a polling station in Kikinda. He went to the polls accompanied by a colleague from internet-based Radio DIR, which conducts training for work in journalism. Upon leaving, he was attacked by three men and sustained injuries.
Election day also saw a journalist and photojournalist from Niš-based portal Južne vesti [Southern News] verbally attacked whilst giving a report, prompting them to file criminal charges in response. A team from Zrenjanin’s KTV television was discriminated against during its reporting on the elections, while a journalist of the portal Glas Zaječar, from the town of the same name, abandoned plans to follow the course of the elections after being threatened a few days earlier by representatives of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party.
