Yesterday, the Serbs protested against President Alexander Vucic and his ruling Serbian Progressive Party in the center of Belgrade. This is reported by Reuters.
“Thousands of people chanted “Vucic thief” as they marched peacefully through the city center in the fourth such protest in as many weeks. They demanded media freedoms, an end to attacks on journalists and opposition politicians,” the report said.
It is noted that the demonstrators consider Vucic an autocrat, and his party a corrupt one.
In an interview with the pro-government Studio B TV during the protest, Vucic said he was ready to discuss the opposition demands.
“I am ready to look at what causes dissent of the people,” he said, after being jeered by a group of protesters as he entered the television station building.
Vucic earlier suggested he was willing to test his party’s popularity in a snap vote, although Vuk Jeremic, a former foreign minister and the head of the small People’s Party, part of the alliance, said the opposition would boycott any election.
This is the fourth protest against the president in Serbia.
