Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) leader Tomislav Nikolic is receiving the necessary fluids through an IV, but he is continuing his hunger strike, Doctor Reik Huskic said early on Wednesday.

According to him, Nikolic is not ingesting any food or fluids orally, but he is getting the necessary fluids through an IV.

He added that the SNS leader is refusing intravenous nutrition.

Lab results indicate that the patient's electrolyte levels need to be constantly monitored, Huskic said.

He noted that Nikolic's results deviated considerably from reference values yesterday, but that they have now returned to normal.

"We are satisfied with the results after adjusting the therapy, but we will not be satisfied until the patient leaves the hospital," Huskic said.
