Only the 'Aleksandar Vucic - For Our Children' Parliamentary Group responded to the invitation and the Committee established a candidate list for REM Council members comprising two names - Olivera Zekic and Milos Gajovic.

The Committee also established the List of candidates for member of the Council of the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Media and the List of organizations that together form a single authorized submitter, proposed by churches and religious communities.
