Serbia Dissolves Parliament and Calls Early Elections

LONDON — Serbia’s president dissolved Parliament and called early elections on Friday, after the government said it needed a new mandate to pursue the difficult economic changes that it deems essential for the country to join the European Union.

“The government has launched a whole series of reforms for which it is seeking a new mandate, so that it can be sure it is acting according to the will of citizens,” the president, Tomislav Nikolic, was quoted by B92, an independent broadcaster, as saying. The vote is scheduled for April 24.
