The documentary photo collective Kamerades have put together a little photo collection of Serbian politicians laughing their asses off, despite failing to form a government a month and a half after the May elections, plunging the country deeper in recession with $845 million budget deficit in the first quarter of the year alone.
Here’s the full text from Kamerades blog:
“Serbia needs to form a government as quickly as possible to ease concerns about its fiscal outlook. May 6 parliamentary elections produced no clear winner and main political parties are negotiating a coalition government. Serbia’s budget deficit expanded to 80 billion dinars ($845 million) in the first five months of the year, to between 7 percent and 8 percent of gross domestic product, while public debt approached 50 percent of GDP, exceeding fiscal targets. Serbia also needs a new government to resume talks with the International Monetary Fund, which froze a $1.3 billion precautionary loan program with the country in February as it became clear it would slip on the agreed targets, including keeping the public debt to 45 percent of GDP. Anyway seems that Serbian politicians are not concern about the country’s future. They used to laugh a lot in the past few weeks. Dear leaders, please tell us what’s so funny, so we can laugh too…”
If you have pictures of laughing politicians from other Balkan countries, send them in. We’ll put them up on Bturn so we can all have a big LMAO together.
