President Tomislav Nikolic on Wednesday said Serbia will hold early parliamentary polls on March 16, as demanded by the ruling Serbian Progressive Party as it seeks to capitalise on support after starting EU membership talks.

"I have just signed the decree to dissolve parliament, paving the way for parliamentary elections to be held on March 16," Nikolic said during a brief ceremony broadcast live on state television.
