Leaders of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), New Serbia (NS), Movement of Socialists and Power of Serbia Movement assessed at the rally in Belgrade Saturday that the socially-economic situation in the country is extremely bad and requested from the ruling coalition to call early parliamentary elections.

Leaders of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), New Serbia (NS), Movement of Socialists and Power of Serbia Movement assessed at the rally in Belgrade Saturday that the socially-economic situation in the country is extremely bad and requested from the ruling coalition to call early parliamentary elections.

At the rally held in Belgrade on Saturday, leader of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) Tomislav Nikolic set a two-month deadline for the government to call early parliamentary elections.

He said that, unless the government agrees to talks on the calling of early elections, the protesters will in April begin a nonviolent resistance at the same place where they gathered Saturday.

Nikolic said that the protesters are not trying to "bring down the government, but rather to beat it" in the elections.

SNS deputy leader Aleksandar Vucic called on the citizens to stage another rally in two months unless the government fulfils the opposition's requests by then, and to protest until the government and the president step down.

"Not only SNS is here today, but also our friends from other parties, the whole Serbia. We want a modern, normal and decent Serbia. We did not come here to say bad things about (Economy Minister) Dinkic, (President) Tadic, (Interior Minister) Dacic. We came here to clearly show them that Serbia is against them. We are not asking them to resign, we are asking them to call elections," Vucic said.

Member of the Power of Serbia Movement Main Committee Milanka Karic said that the Serbian citizens want a final reckoning, as Serbia is the poorest European country where people are starving.

Karic stressed that, regardless of the which party they belong to, the people in front of the National Assembly have the same task, to fight for changes, headed by "future president (Tomislav) Nikolic and prime minister Vucic."

"I convey to you the greetings of leader of the Power of Serbia Movement (Bogoljub Karic), who has been out of the country for the past five years, being persecuted for jeopardizing with his abilities those for whom the ministerial position was the first job they ever had," Milanka Karic said.

Movement of Socialists leader Aleksandar Vulin stated that the citizens need food, hope and justice, and that they have had enough of "(Infrastructure Minister) Mrkonjic's fabrications and Dinkic's lies."


There were no violations of public order and peace at the rally staged in Belgrade Saturday by a part of the opposition headed by the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), apart from individual cases which did not affect public safety, the Serbian Interior Ministry (MUP) released.

No public facilities or vehicles have been damaged, and the rally participants peacefully dispersed upon the completion of the rally, the statement reads.

According to the estimates of the police, the rally is attended by about 55,000 people, and several thousand reporters are covering the event.
