Another anti-government protest is scheduled for later on Saturday.

Leaders of the SNS accepted Vucic’s resignation offer at the party congress in Kragujevac, central Serbia, and appointed defence minister Milos Vucevic to replace him, as Vucic had proposed.

Vucic told the congress he believes “a slightly different approach is needed to unite a greater number of those who want to fight for the victory of patriotic Serbia. A successful Serbia that will focus on its citizens, for a country that will not look for reasons for division, but for unification and togetherness.”
