BELGRADE — Serbia’s ruling Progressive Party won a resounding victory in a parliamentary election on Sunday, exit polls show, in Europe’s first national election as coronavirus lockdowns start to ease.

“We won everywhere,” said Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić, a co-founder and the leader of the party, at a press conference. “Tonight, we gained the huge trust of the people, the greatest ever in Serbia.”

The Progressive Party is projected to have won about 63 percent of the vote, according to exit polls by the Center for Free Elections and Democracy (CeSID), and over 180 seats in the 250-strong parliament — an increase from the 131 seats it had in the previous legislature.
