1880 Serbian parliamentary election


Parliamentary elections were held in Serbia on 12 December 1880.[1] As expected,[1] the elections resulted in a majority for the government, whose supporters won 94 seats, whilst Radicals won only 18 seats.[2] By January 1881 the number of government supporters had risen to over 100, whilst the Radicals had split.[3]

Background


Prince Milan signed a decree dissolving the National Assembly and calling elections on 5 November.[4] Unlike the previous elections in which many candidates were returned unopposed, most seats were contested.[1]
