Local elections in Serbia were held on 6 May 2012.[1] Pursuant to the Constitution of Serbia, the parliamentary Speaker (at the time Slavica Đukić Dejanović from SPS) signed on 13 March 2012 the Decision on calling the elections for councilors of municipal assemblies, town assemblies and the Belgrade City Assembly for 6 May 2012, with the exception of: the councilors of the municipal assemblies of Aranđelovac, Bor, Vrbas, Vrnjačka Banja, Knjaževac, Kovin, Kosjerić, Kosovska Mitrovica, Leposavić, Negotin, Novo Brdo, Odžaci, Peć, Prijepolje and Ruma and councilors of the Priština Town Assembly, which have already had extraordinary elections in the period from 2008 to 2012, while for councilors of the municipal assembly of Kula, the elections were already called earlier on 29 February 2012.[2]

In line with United Nations SC Resolution 1244, the Government of the Republic of Serbia will, in cooperation with UNMIK, implement all actions necessary for the elections on the territory of the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija.[3]

Some EU member states officials expressed their disagreement over the decisions to call local elections for municipalities in Kosovo and Metohija.[4] Local elections will be observed by a delegation of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.
