Olivera Kovačević who is Serbian journalist says:

‘ Everyone is welcome to apply for the RTS competition. We will conduct the election procedure according to the Eurovision standard and regulations, and only unforeseen epidemic measures can force us to make the election in another way. We hope that this will not happen – said Kovacevic, who pointed out that the procedure for choosing the composition that will represent Serbia at the “Eurosong” in 2022 is defined by the Rulebook, while the conditions for participation in the election for national representative are stated in the competition.”

Olivera adds:

”The competition is just open, the jury and the audience will decide who will be the representative of Serbia and RTS at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rome after the competition in February. Or in case of impossibility to hold the competition, RTS will decide for itself”
