The supreme legislative act takes place in the field of justice and concerns the way of electing judges and prosecutors.

Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić told parliament on June 7 that “changes to the Constitution in the field of justice, which lead to European integration, are mainly for the benefit of the people, as they will improve their quality of life and hope to create a broader social consensus “.

Brnabić stated that “the public debate on the proposed changes to the Constitution lasted 18 months” and expressed the hope that “the assembly, which insisted on finding a common denominator in order to reach the widest possible social consensus on how to change of the Constitution in the field of justice, will reach such an agreement and that this is how the referendum will be held “./ibna
