Abstract. The Serbian Progressive Party leader Tomislav Nikolic was recently elected as the President of Serbia. This person has a questionable fame of a “nationalist”. So, a large part of Western and Serbian press initially considered his election was as almost like an “earthquake” promising sensational developments in foreign and domestic policy of the country. What actually happened, what is a genuine political profile of the new head of state and what changes should be expected in Belgrade's policies? An attempt to answer these questions is the main objective of the proposed article.

Keywords: Serbia, elections, possible changes, Socialists, Democrats
