In the southern Serbian town of Nis, around 5,000 mainly young people who organised via social media took the streets demanding change. However, pensioners also joined the rally saying that they do not want their kids and grandchildren to leave the country for work.

Thus, a fairly large number of residents of Serbia refuse to recognize the victory of Aleksandar Vucic in presidential election.
