Calling the masses to resign in anti-violence protests on Saturday, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic urged the opposition to hold a referendum.
Expressing that the way to change the government is not street protests, but a popular vote, Vucic offered to hold a referendum of confidence in the presidency. Vucic said, “Let them kill me if they want. But I will never give up power without elections.” And Vucic announced that if the opposition did not find sufficient support for the referendum decision in Parliament, this initiative would also have the support of the ruling coalition.
In the message he shared on Twitter, Vucic wrote, “Some outsiders are not trying to destroy Serbia because of someone called Vucic, they are trying to destroy Vucic for the sake of destroying Serbia.” Vucic’s remarks were likened to that of Serbian butcher Slobodan Milosevic, saying, “They are not attacking Serbia because of Milosevic, they are attacking Milosevic for attacking Serbia.”
Prime Minister Ana Brnabić said the government was ready to resign at any time, but President Vucic refused. Addressing the opposition on Twitter, Brnabic said, “You may have changed your mind. If you want to choose, no problem. We are always ready to go to elections.”
