Serbia elects Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic as president
05 April 2017 Current Affairs: Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has won a clear victory in the country's presidential election.

He won about 55%, well above the threshold to avoid a run-off, with most results counted.

His closest challenger, Sasa Jankovic, polled 16%, while satirical candidate Ljubisa Preletacevic came third with 9% of the vote.

He became prime minister after his pro-EU nationalist Progressive Party won a landslide victory in early parliamentary elections in 2014.
